Crane Cams, Daytona Beach, Fla., has hired Kevin Sensor to serve as valve train test engineer.
Sensor began his automotive career as a machinist, and as an engine builder won three consecutive championships from 1991-’93 at his home track of Volusia County Speedway in Florida, according to a press release.
“Where I’ve been and what I’ve done has given me great experience and success in professional motorsports throughout the years,” Sensor said. “Joining everyone at Crane Cams brings me back to Daytona where I can continue to develop innovative valve train systems. I’ll be working alongside the Crane engineering and design staff to develop professional motorsports technology for today’s racers and I’m looking forward to this new and exciting challenge.”
After spending seven years building engines throughout North Carolina, Sensor became involved in valve train development and worked with Penske Racing, Dale Earnhardt Inc., Del West and Roush Yates Performance Engine Group, according to the release.
“Kevin is another building block for us,” said Sean Holly, Crane Cams president. “His experience at the top level of racing will improve our core product offering and be critical to our new product strategy.”
