MAHLE Celebrates Champions

Dec 6, 2014

MAHLE Aftermarket Inc., Farmington Hills, Michigan, had a banner weekend Nov. 15-16, when cars with Clevite engine bearings and MAHLE Original piston rings brought home championship trophies in both NASCAR and NHRA.

Kevin Harvick (NASCAR Sprint Cup Series), Tony Schumacher (NHRA Top Fuel), Matt Hagan (NHRA Funny Car), and Erica Enders-Stevens (NHRA Pro Stock) were all carried to victory with MAHLE Aftermarket parts under their hoods, the company noted.

“We’re proud that each of these great competitors put their trust in MAHLE components to help them take home their championships,” said Jon Douglas, general manager, MAHLE Aftermarket Inc. “We are honored to be associated with them, and the fantastic racing series each represents.”

MAHLE is involved in motorsports on a global scale, providing engine components and technical support to teams in Formula 1, NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA and international endurance racing. In many of the series, MAHLE works directly with OE engine manufacturers on advanced designs, and that experience is translated into the next generation of production engines, the company stated.
