Allstar Performance is prepared for another season of equipping racers with the components necessary to build winning cars, building on a successful 2018.
In the circle-track world, championship-winning drivers such as Donny Schatz, Jonathan Davenport, Josh Brock, Kody Swanson, Logan Seavey, and Tyler Courtney used Allstar Performance parts. The Michigan-based company worked on perfecting their line of products for 2019, to help their customers win even more races and championships.
“We’ve just got a lot of little different bracketry and components and pieces,” Curt Spalding of Allstar Performance told Speed51.com. “Nothing real earth-shattering, but a lot of updates and things to things we’ve done in the past to showcase some new items.”
The success of those racers is motivating for Allstar Performance, Spalding says, as they are all gearheads at heart who want to see their cars succeed.
“It means a lot,” Spalding said. “That’s what we all do. We’re racers, we’re engine builders, we’re all gearheads.”
Allstar Performance’s success stories also range to other realms of motorsport, as they offer products for road racing, tractor pulling, drag racing, and more. At last month’s Performance Racing Industry Trade Show in Indianapolis, Allstar Performance displayed Terry McMillen’s NHRA Top Fuel dragster. McMillen won the 2018 U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis.
The body paneling along the left side of the display car was removed, allowing visitors to the booth to see the parts and pieces that went into constructing the crown-jewel winning chassis.
“Terry McMillen won the U.S. Nationals, he’s from Indy,” Spalding explained. “It’s a huge opportunity for us to showcase not only what Terry does, but a lot of the parts and pieces and things we tie together in our program.”
This gave racers from other disciplines a chance to look at car construction from another perspective, something Spalding hopes will give drivers fresh ideas for their own work.
“I wanted the circle-track world to be able to see some of these things to get their brains going,” Spalding explained. “There’s a lot of really cool things that these guys do that are so different and outside of the box. The response has been overwhelming with questions. Some of these guys have been going from front to tail asking a ton of questions. It’s awesome.”
