We are happy to announce our new and returning partnerships as well as our racing schedule for the 2018 racing season!
The team has been working really hard this offseason to build a competitive racing machine, as well as a solid brand here at Heald Racing. Competitive racing takes so much more than just the driver racing the car. It takes a devoted team of people putting in long hours and hard work long before any driving happens.
Having support from a great group of companies and quality products makes all the difference in racing and with that I am happy to announce our new and retuning partners for the 2018 racing season!
One of the newest partners with Heald racing is Fortune auto. They offer a diverse range of suspension solutions for a wide variety of purposes and applications. Every shock that leaves their workshop fully hand-built to each client’s requirements. With the assistance of their knowledgeable staff, capability to re-valve/rebuild in-house, and the availability of various upgrades and options offered, they can help you create the perfect suspension setup for your needs. I am super excited to have these guys on my team, they make a stellar product and their support is above and beyond other suspension companies!
AEM is another new partner for 2018 we are super excited to have AEM on the team, we have been working with AEM and their products for the last few years. We love the products that they put out and I can tell you from first hand experience these guys have a ton of knowledge! Every time we have had an issue (mostly from our own mistakes) AEM has gone above and beyond in helping us overcome it, I am proud to run AEM products on my car.
EOP Distributing has worked side by side with me for awhile now. Apart from having an awesome selection of AN fittings, brake lines, hoses, and other assorted performance parts, the owner Mark has a ton of knowledge and experience in the racing community. He has always been able to help me sort out the parts I need to keep my car running right.
I began working with Nitrous Express at the start of last season. I was looking for a solution to minimizing my boost lag issue to help keep up with the v8 cars in competition and Nitrous Express had the answer, a all in one nitrous kit that was easy to install and did what I needed it to do. Everything they make is top of the line and these guys have it all when it comes to nitrous! You can get anything from a full ready to go kit, all the way down to individual fittings and everything in-between.
Mishimoto makes some top of the line cooling products they have more than 10 years of experience in working with cooling system upgrades for daily drivers, track cars, trucks, and bikes. Mishimoto was created for automotive enthusiasts by automotive enthusiasts. They are a cohesive team that works hard to consistently provide the highest-quality products and service!
Cosmis racing wheels make a unbelievable product, not only do their wheels look great but they are made for battle! I have put my wheels through hell the last few years, crashing into the wall, getting caught up into other cars, and just the usual wear and tear of taking the wheels on and off constantly, I have yet to crack or bend a single wheel! it has been great knowing that these will stand up and look great while doing it.
ONE SIX OH studios makes custom apparel and decals, they made all my team shirts and the majority of the decals for my car as well as the chinchillin drift team boys. They are awesome to have on the team.
ALM is a small shop in Snohomish Washington where we have been building the racing program from the start, learning and growing every step along the way!
