Rush, who was raised in Grass Valley, dropped a bombshell in the track and field world in 1977 when he invented the first electronic recording timer for cross country and track called the “Chronomix.” It was used throughout the world of cross country and track and field. It was also used world wide in marathon and road races. It has the capacity to print the time and place of thousands of runners with a push of a button as well as recording the time to a thousand of a second. It changed the track world from a blink of a second to blinks of a second.
