At VanGordon Racing Engines, Inc. we are passionate about performance. If it doesn't meet our expectations, it doesn't leave the shop! We have a long history of racing on the quarter mile, the half-mile oval, and on the water in high performance speed boats. With this type of experience, we can help you get to where you want to be, faster than you've ever gotten there before! We bring each vehicle to the peak of performance with the individual driver in mind. For more information, click on the customer TESTIMONIALS link below.

We are the official engine builder for OzTruck, Australia's newest motorsports category. This series is the primary user of our E85 engine package. It is the premier truck racing series in Australia that has brought affordable racing to the land "down under". The series is based around a purpose built circuit race truck bred from the oval tracks of North America. To get a look at what's going on with the wild Ozzies, click on the OzTruck link below!

In 2004, we took the championship in the NAPA Auto Parts Super Truck Series. It was a great season and we competed with a superior group of drivers. The points race was close all season long and we squeaked by with only 14 points to take the championship. Driver Ron Peterson worked hard for that championship and we're proud of him. The series was re-assigned to the Dodge Super Trucks for the 2005 season and Ron came in second in points for the season. In 2006 the series went through another change to become the NASCAR King Taco Super Trucks Series. Ron and the crew worked their magic again and took the 2006 Championship! Super driving, great teamwork and an understanding of chassis setup for changing track conditions gave us the championship. Let us do the same for you!
We also actively participate in drag racing and entered the Goodguys March Meet in 2004 and won Nostalgia Eliminator II class. If you are having trouble with your engine or setup, give us a call and see what we can do for you. We thrive on customer satisfaction.
