Todd Goodwin of Goodwin Competition, Inc. has seen championship success after developing his own billet aluminum performance engine. Named the Semi Hemi, it is more than capable in drag racing, truck pulling and even marine applications. Oh, and did we mention its one of the highest horsepower pump gas engines in existence.
At the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup level, it’s no secret that the competition is fierce. Every little thing matters from the driver to pit stops to one of the most important aspects – the engine. Engine Builder recently got an inside look at engine development at Earnhardt Childress Racing (ECR) from Andrew Randolph, ECR’s technical director.
If you remember about a year ago in the pages of Engine Builder, we highlighted a shop in Cleveland called Victory Engines. The title of that story was ‘To the Victor Go the Spoils.’ Foreshadowing being what it is, Victory Engines’ owner Ray Banyas has again claimed a victory by being named the 2016 Vintage Engine Builder of the Year.
