Shane Ballard started Safari Off Road in 1991 as a small two bay repair facility. At that time he began racing off road stadium trucks as a hobby. As time went on, he traveled across the country racing his 1974 Ford Bronco. His hobby has now turned into a full eight bay, 8,000 square foot automotive repair facility and a 3,500 square foot showroom. With his six full time 4x4 specialists they modify and repair more vehicles than any other facility in SW Missouri.
