If you remember about a year ago in the pages of Engine Builder, we highlighted a shop in Cleveland called Victory Engines.

The Engine Builder team recently made a trip up to Cleveland to visit Ray Banyas and Phil Hartsel at Victory Engines to tour the shop and present the guys with the 2016 Vintage Engine Builder of the Year award.
