Race Winning Brands Buys High-Performance Valvetrain Brand
Race Winning Brands Inc. (RWB) acquired the assets of X2 Valvetrain from Xceldyne, expanding its catalog of high performance valvetrain components. X2 will become a part of RWB’s trend performance division.
X2 Valvetrain is a leading brand in the valve and valvetrain marketplace. For nearly a decade the company has supplied a variety of premium steel valves and valvetrain components to the auto racing industry, including the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) and NASCAR. More recently, X2 expanded its offering to include a powersports product line to provide steel and titanium valves, along with ancillary valvetrain components to professional off-road motorcycle and ATV racing teams. X2 valves, valve springs, lightweight retainers, locks, and tappet buckets have since been utilized in numerous championship-winning bikes, according to the company.
“X2 is an excellent fit for the Trend product line and we’re excited to make these products available to our customers,” said Bob Fox, president of DPB’s trend performance. “X2’s quality and performance has made it a top choice for professional teams and engine builders. We look forward to providing race teams more of the service and parts they need.”
