But don’t delay — the deadline for online nominations is Sept. 30.

The winner will be announced at a special presentation during the 2013 Advanced Engineering Technology Conference (AETC) in Indianapolis, December 8-11. The winner will receive a $1,000 prize, an Apple iPad, three nights’ lodging at the Indianapolis Hyatt during AETC, admission for two to AETC, the Performance Engine Builder of the Year Award Plaque, a feature article about the business in a 2014 issue of Engine Builder, as well as numerous other prizes from Engine Builder and Driven Racing Oil.

“Last year, we received entries from fantastic shops all over the country. Each was a worthy candidate, but Ed Pink Racing Engines was the cream that rose to the top,” said Engine Builder associate publisher/editor Doug Kaufman. “We’re looking for 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. Yes, it’s a long list, and it’s an intentionally challenging track,” Kaufman said. “We’re looking for the best of the best of the best.”

The entry process is simple, but starts with those making the nomination providing basic information about the engine builder or shop being nominated at www.topperformanceshop.com and write a short essay explaining why that operation should be considered.
