We Build Custom Drag Racing Engines
Patterson Racing has been building custom drag racing engines for over 35 years. Allan Patterson started racing as a teenager and developed a passion for the quarter mile. With his machining experience in the aircraft industry he began building his own engines then started the company in 1979. As the business grew his son Todd Patterson took over and they have been perfecting the art of engine building ever since.
Todd is a regular contender in NHRA Comp Eliminator, Stock and Super Stock. He has won 12 national and 27 divisional titles including the 2014 Division 5 Competition Eliminator championship. Todd often finds himself giving advice to fellow racers while at the track. He races what he sells and has built a team of engine builders who have the experience and expertise to deliver the best.
Our engines have won well over 100 NHRA national events and multiple world championships. David Rampy alone has 70 victories using a Patterson Racing engine!
When you buy from Patterson Racing you get much more than an engine. You get confidence at the starting line knowing that your engine was built by experts who know what it takes to be competitive and stand behind their work.
Wishing all of our customers a Safe and Happy 4th of July!
