What’s better than a show/race tour complete with one of the biggest industry leaders in the automotive market? How about a tour with two industry leaders? This year Vortech Superchargers and Chris Alston’s Chassisworks are making that possible by joining forces for the 2012 Show/ Race schedule. Now at 35 events across the country this year, you’ll not only find a fantastic display of Chris Alston chassis and racing components, you’ll also find a complete lineup of Vortech Superchargers on display.
Vortech Teams Up with Chris Alston Chassisworks for 2012 Race/Show Tour
Sacramento, CA and Oxnard, CA—Vortech Superchargers will be onboard with Chris Alston’s Chassisworks 2012 Show/Race schedule to showcase Vortech products and services at all 35 stops on this year’s road show. The relationship was born in racing and flourished in the transfer of technology as Vortech worked with Chassisworks in bringing the V-28 123 racing supercharger to the record books. Last year Chassisworks released its Component Drive System (CDS) supercharger drive setup for Vortech and other centrifugal superchargers in the racing and street-performance markets making the relationship mutually beneficial for both parties.
The on-track relationship with Vortech and Chassisworks began when the longtime chassis and racing component company was looking to take its Outlaw 10.5 racing program to a higher level. Chassisworks campaigns a 1964 Chevy Nova on the western Outlaw scene as a means to promote its products for that genre of drag racing. Vortech had just unveiled its V-28 123 racing supercharger and as they say, the rest was history. Chris Alston Jr. and his crew pushed the Chassisworks Nova to new records in the centrifugal supercharger realm by knocking down a best and unmatched 6.65 at 215 mph. This came at a surprise to some, as the Vortech inlet was some 16mm smaller than the previous supercharger that was on the car yet it ran significantly quicker. The team made the switch to a Hemi engine last year and is scheduled to be on the engine dyno to see how far the V-28 123 can be pushed.
In the meantime, here is a list of events Chassisworks is attending and it will have a complete Vortech Supercharger line-up displayed alongside the company’s chassis and racing components.
