Are You One of America’s Best Engine Shops?

Through a special online portal, www.topenginebuilders.com, engine builders can nominate themselves or others can nominate engine building businesses for the award. A winner in each category – Race, Vintage and Diesel – will be chosen and recognized at an awards celebration before the PRI Show, in the pages of Engine Builder magazine and online at enginebuildermag.com. The question remains, are you one of America’s Best Engine Shops?

Engine Builder magazine is always looking to reward the engine builders of the world, and since 2012, we’ve done just that. Over the past 7 years, we’ve placed the spotlight on dozens of successful engine builders who exemplify the key attributes of a well-run business through our ‘Engine Builders of the Year’ program. This year is no different.

Well, there is one difference – we’re changing the name – but the award remains as sought after as ever by the country’s top engine builders in race, vintage and diesel categories. The name change came about to erase common confusion between this program, which awards the builders, versus our Engine of the Year award, which celebrates the best engines seen in our Engine of the Week article series. The program is now America’s Best Engine Shops, and this year the program is being sponsored by Engine Parts Warehouse and its brands Erson Cams, World Products and PBM Performance Products.

We believe – with no disrespect intended – the engine builder is often the most under-appreciated part of any successful racing team. They often get too much of the blame and not enough of the credit for the outcome of the race, for keeping your truck pulling or making sure your vintage car keeps kicking. This is a great chance to give them some well-deserved recognition. And it’s a great way for advertisers to reach this audience while supporting a great program.

Through a special online portal www.TopEngineBuilders.com, engine builders can nominate themselves or others can nominate engine building businesses for the award. In the past, we have celebrated engine builders ranging from dirt track bullrings to sports car endurance courses and the wilds of Baja.

We look for shops that:

Celebrate creativity and innovation

Encourage training and education

Emphasize marketing, merchandising and promotion

Maintain professional standards and conduct

Take pride in appearance, business management, community involvement, business growth, achievement and victories.

A winner in each category – Race, Vintage and Diesel – will be chosen and recognized at an awards celebration before the PRI Show, in the pages of Engine Builder magazine and online at enginebuildermag.com. The question remains, are you one of America’s Best Engine Shops?
