Engine Builder Magazine To Announce Performance Engine Builder of the Year

Engine
Builder

magazine, the only monthly trade publication dedicated to serving the
business, technical and marketing needs of the professional engine
building industry will announce the winner of its inaugural
Performance
Engine Builder of the Year

contest, today,
Friday, December 7, at 11:30 a.m.

in the National Speed Sport News Industry Center on the trade show
floor at the International Motorsports Industry Show (IMIS) in
Indianapolis.

“We
intended The
Performance Engine Builder of the Year Award
to
showcase the best example of creativity and innovation, training and
education, merchandising and promotion, professional standards and
conduct, appearance, solid business management, community
involvement, business growth, achievement and victories,” explains
Doug Kaufman, associate publisher/editor of Engine
Builder

magazine. “We believe our winner exemplifies all those attributes.”

The
selection was made by a panel of judges, including the Engine
Builder

staff and representatives from contest sponsor Driven Racing Oil.

“Too
many times, the driver and the race day team are the only ones who
get to hold the trophy for winning a championship,” says Lake
Speed, Jr., from Driven Racing Oil. “The engine builder knows that
he was part of that and, while there are some trophies for those
guys, frankly, they only win if the whole team wins. This is more of
a contest about who runs the best engine shop, determined by a
variety of factors. As sponsor, we like the idea of this competition.
Frankly, race engine builders are competitive and they want to see
their engines win.”

The shop judged as the Performance
Engine Builder of the Year will receive a Performance Engine Builder
of the Year Award trophy, various prizes from Engine
Builder

magazine, a feature story on the business in the January 2013 issue
of Engine
Builder’s

High Performance Buyers Guide, as well as other recognition.

Second-
and third-place finalists will also be announced and awarded prizes
as well.

“Personally,
I think the race engine builder needs this. With all the obstacles
they face, these guys have been kicked around for a long time,”
says Driven’s Speed. The simple fact of the matter is, though, that
nobody is going to cross that finish line without the expertise of a
great engine builder.”
