The National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) recently introduced their Engine Builder of the Year program and title sponsor, Total Seal Piston Rings.
The program is aimed at rewarding the engine builders who have such a large stake in the success of the racers that compete with the NDRL. It will also offer up some bragging rights in addition to cash and prizes that are being awarded.
“We wanted to give the engine builders some recognition and some show of appreciation for giving these guys what they need to be successful. The program awards consistency, but it also rewards winning. We are very happy to be able to give something back to those guys. They deserve some credit for all that they do,” said NDRL Marketing Director Jason Babyak.
“The engine builders are obviously some of Total Seal’s core customers, so it was a win-win for them and for the NDRL. We are proud to have Total Seal on board and to represent their brand through the Engine Builder program,” Babyak added.
Additional sponsors of the Engine Builder of the Year program include High Velocity Heads, Dyers Top Rods, Cometic Gasket, K1 Technologies and JE Pistons.
Participating engine builders accumulate points based on performance of the drivers that race their engines. A win is good for 10 points, while a top 5 is worth 5 points. A top 10 finish is good for 1 point, and a fast time garners 3 points.
A running tally is published after each event, and at the year's end the top 3 finishers will all receive cash and prizes for their efforts.
