Today's society moves at a record pace, from how fast we expect our food to be served to how quickly a Drag Racing Record bursts into our hands thru Social Media. The business world has those same aspirations as business owners or innovators. They invest financial, labor and cross their fingers that they provide product or service to the market, frankly looking to establish their business as a staple in their segment. 2018 places a mark on the wall for Oakley Engine Performance, as they have accomplished exactly what business owners envision. The great success of Oakley Engine Performance takes one more step forward with becoming the presenting class sponsor for Top Sportsman and Top Dragster with Diamond Pistons.
"This is truly an exciting time at the Oakley shop, we could not be happier to set out on this journey with Diamond and their team, as well as Jeff Conley and his staff. We have the toughest, quickest and fastest division in the country for Top Sportsman and Top Dragster in the NHRA, we build quick, fast and reliable engines for many of the Top 10 Competitors in the two classes. Why shouldn't we be the class sponsor ?" smiled Phillip Oakley.
Phillip Oakley is known to many merely as "Flip", he has been a staple in Drag Racing Circles for decades, with extensive experience throughout the levels of motorsports from sponsorship from Texas Roadhouse for over a decade to running a race track, yet the biggest smile you see on "Flip's" face is when success is achieved by those that have trusted him to be a piece of their racing success.
"2017 was truly a great year for our company, we secured a Divisional Title with JB (Strassweg), as well as had numerous Top 10 players on both levels of competition. Top that off with the Dirt Track Championship and my first grandson. How do we make 2018 bigger than '17? We become the class sponsor for two fiercely competitive classes in our backyard, 2018 is looking bright," stated Oakley.
The NHRA Division 3 chase to be the first Oakley Engine Performance Top Sportsman and Top Dragster Champion starts at National Trail Raceway in May. The title chase will surely come down to the wire as it has in the previous years, in the end, one-of-a-kind Jackets and Trophies will be waiting for the Champions. Who will it be? A repeat or a new champ? Ten short months from now it will be decided, we know someone that hopes the champions are both Oakley Engine Performance Customers.
