Welcome to another exciting year of racing where we will post the successes of drivers using Leitch Performance built engines. Drivers - be sure to let us know your results so that we can include you.
When you purchase or rebuild your engine at Leitch Performance in 2011 and you put a Leitch logo clearly visible on the lower front of your race car's hood or the back end - LPE is continuing to pay out $100 contingency fee when you win a feature race!
We’ve been a little neglectful getting results posted on the website as business has been so busy and we are busy most every weekend visiting race tracks where our engines are running.
Of particular note should be Robin Buck racing in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series (NCTS) series who is racing the road circuits and has now finished first twice - June 5th and Aug 7th and has also placed second and third. LPE power had 3 finishers in the top 5 when Robin Buck won at ICAR June 5th.
Mark Dilley is one to watch as he improves race to race in the same series and has been finishing well also.
You may not have seen Mitch Brown’s name mentioned lately as he has made the leap from the mini-stocks right into sprints and has been learning the ropes with some impressive finishes lately. You will soon be seeing his name a lot in the future. Meanwhile his brother Jake has taken over the reins from Mitch and is also doing well.
Stay tuned and we’ll try to gather up some news about several of the other racers who having been doing well lately.
