Turner has more than fifteen years of industry experience most recently as a territory sales representative for JE Pistons and as an inside technical sales representative for Edelbrock from 2000-2003.
Turner’s personal interests include drag racing and flying. His love for everything performance began as a teen while working on hot rods with his father. Shane gained interest in drag racing while working as an Edelbrock Technical Sales Representative, and with the help of a few friends earned his Super Comp license in 2000. Turner currently campaigns his dragster in everything from Super Eliminator to Super Comp and has earned two number one qualifier awards, three top ten season finishes and one NHRA Divisional event win.

His automotive hobbies include his current ride, a ’65 Malibu with a late model LT1 EFI motor and countless past projects including a ’33 Dodge pickup, ’67 Camaro, ’67 and ’70 Chevelle and a Super Comp Dragster.
Edelbrock recently selected Rob Morse of AutoRep Sales and Marketing as its representative for the expansion of their original equipment sales efforts in the great lakes and Midwestern region. Morse will draw on his more than seven years of manufacturer sales representation experience combined with his fifteen years of sales and marketing experience with Ford Motor Company to further expand Edelbrock’s products, aluminum foundry and manufacturing services to original equipment manufacturers.
