BILSTEIN has partnered with motorsports engineer Kevin Rumley, who specializes in automotive and motorsports component design, vehicle dynamics and technical consulting.
“I’m thrilled to work with BILSTEIN and contribute to its long tradition of excellence,” Rumley said. “It’s an exciting time at the company and I look forward to advancing Bilstein’s product offering in the circle track market.”
Rumley has extensive experience in developing patents and in working with both GM and Ford to design technical systems. He will collaborate with BILSTEIN’s head of motorsports, Aaron Morey, and the team based in Mooresville, North Carolina.
“I’m very excited to bring Kevin Rumley over to Bilstein Shocks,” Morey said. “I’ve known Kevin now for 14 years and we’ve been able to work together on other projects, so I’ve seen his work ethic and ideas come to life. Having Kevin Rumley energize our team will help us innovate quicker and come to market with solid products ready to win.”
In 2015, Rumley was named crew chief of the year/car owner champion of Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series driver Jonathan Davenport. His involvement in the sport goes to the core of its modern structure, having developed and CAD designed Dirt Late Model chassis for well-known builder Longhorn Chassis, according to Bilstein, revolutionizing the industry with record-shattering seasons and a national touring championship.
