Action Motorsports opened in Marion in 1996 selling and repairing go-karts and scooters, and was the only place in Marion selling zero-turn lawn mowers at the time. The business is owned by Mike and Pam Harris. For several years, Pam operated the store through the weekdays, and Mike would do repairs and assembly on nights and weekends.
As the business grew, they moved into a larger building at 206 N. Baldwin Ave. Action Motorsports is not indicative of all they do. The focus of the business has become representing several unique and quality lines of outdoor power equipment, and providing parts and service to the customers who use that equipment.
Action Motorsports is fortunate to have had customers whose parents or grandparents were customers, and gratified when those customers share how Action Motorsports helped them meet a need in maintaining their property or sometimes just enjoying it more with the help of a UTV.
“We appreciate the Chamber members promoting each other’s endeavors and their efforts to support local businesses whenever possible. As new development appears in the area, we are anxious to share in the enthusiasm of growth with an attitude of service and optimism,” said Mike Harris.
Like many local businesses, the past year has been challenging to maintain inventory of many products due to disruptions in the supply chain.
For the past 9 years, the Harris’ Great Dane, Maxwell, has been diligent to come to work each day to serve as greeter and head of public relations.
Action Motorsports has lawn mowers from Simplicity, Grasshopper, Snapper, SnapperPro, TORO, and Country Clipper. They also have handheld equipment from ECHO and American-made UTVs from American Landmaster. They provide parts and service for every product they sell and many others as well.
Mike and Pam remain thankful for community support and look forward to a bright future in Marion.
