Salem, IN – Officials from Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS and McGunegill Engine Performance have announced that McGunegill Engine Performance will continue their support of CRA including the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance for the 2015 season. McGunegill Engine Performance will award the 2015 JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Champion a free rebuild of a Crate Engine or the cost of the rebuild off the purchase of a MEP GM Equalizer Sealed Engine. The award winner must include MEP as one of their primary sponsors for the 2016 season. MEP will also award a $100 Product Certificate to a random racer at each JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour event during the 2015 season.
“This is a great program that McGunegill Engine Performance is continuing with its support of our JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner of CRA. “Dewaine and his whole crew have been great supporters of CRA for several years, we appreciate everything they do for CRA and our racers!”
McGunegill Engine Performance will also continue their sponsorship programs for the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Series Powered by JEGS and Stealth Trailers CRA Street Stocks Powered by JEGS for the upcoming 2015 season. The Muncie, Indiana based engine builder has had tremendous success with their engine packages recently developed specifically for the Late Model Sportsman and Street Stock teams.
The highest finisher in the top ten of each Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Series event, who has not received the award previously, will receive a $100 certificate towards labor or purchase of an engine from McGunegill Engine Performance. A $50 certificate will be awarded in the Stealth Trailers CRA Street Stock division in the same manner at each event. Additionally, McGunegill Engine Performance will award a $1000 product certificate by random draw of the top ten finishers in final Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Series points and a $500 product certificate by random draw of the top ten finishers in final Stealth Trailers CRA Street Stocks points at the 2015 CRA Awards Banquet.
McGunegill Engine Performance has been a leader in developing high performance, cost effective race engine solutions. The family run business, now owned and operated by DeWaine McGunegill, has led the development of the highly successful Sealed Engine program for Super Late Models in the last ten years. Their innovative Sealed Engine package has drastically cut the cost of purchasing a competitive Super Late Model engine. McGunegill Engine Performance has also been a top builder and rebuilder of crate engines competing in Pro Late Model divisions including the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance for several years.
Several CRA competitors used McGunegill Engine Performance power during the 2013 season including ARCA/CRA Super Series 2013 and 2014 Champion Travis Braden and three time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion Johnny Van Doorn and 2014 Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Champion Greg Van Alst. Other CRA competitors winning in 2014 with MEP power include Brian Campbell, Chad Finley, Grant Quinlan, Hunter Baize, Brandon Oakley, J.J. Haley, Chris Hacker, Trey Craig. The McGunegill family has been involved in racing for decades, as racers themselves, and later, as nationally recognized engine builders.
