Officials from Champion Racing Association and
McGunegill Engine Performance have announced
that McGunegill Engine Performance will expand
their support of CRA to include the JEGS/CRA All-
Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts
for the 2012 season. McGunegill Engine
Performance will award the 2012 JEGS/CRA All-
Stars Tour Champion the use of a MEP Equalizer
Sealed Engine for the 2013 season. The award
winner must agree to compete the entire 2013
season with the ARCA/CRA Super Series and
must include MEP as one of their primary sponsors
for the season. MEP will also award a $100 Product
Certificate to a random racer at each JEGS/CRA
All-Stars Tour event during the 2012 season.
“This is a great new program that McGunegill Engine Performance is supporting with our JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts,” 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 CRA Late Model Sportsman Series and CRA Street Stocks for the upcoming 2012 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 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 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 CRA Late Model Sportsman Series points and a $500 product certificate by random draw of the top ten finishers in final CRA Street Stocks points at the 2012 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 nine 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 GM Performance Parts for several years.
Several CRA competitors used McGunegill Engine Performance power during the 2011 season including JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by GM Performance Parts Champion Erik Jones, CRA Southern Tour Driver Champion Bubba Pollard, along with 2011 CRA winners Eddie Hoffman, Brian Campbell, Terry Fisher Jr., Jeff Lane, Grant Enfinger, Jimmy Carter, Travis Braden, Jason Atkinson and Brett Robinson. Other CRA competitors using MEP power include three time ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion Scott Hantz and CRA regulars Rick Turner, Peter Cozzolino, Jay Niewiek, Colin Nickolai, Nick Gullatta and Matt Hall. 2009 and 2010 ARCA/CRA Super Series Champion Johnny VanDoorn recently announced he will use MEP power to compete for another series Championship in 2012. The McGunegill family has been involved in racing for decades, as racers themselves, and later, as nationally recognized engine builders.
