RACING SINCE 1958

Champion Speed Shop race team was started in 1958 by the NHRA Hall of Fame inductee Jim McLennan. Today the legacy goes on in a nostalgia top fuel front engine dragster.

CHAMPION SPEED SHOP 2021

 

 

We are extremely excited to introduce our new Murf McKinney race car. The car is a second generation canopy car, patterned after Don Prudhomme's 1960's B&M Torkmaster car.   The all-aluminum body was hand fabricated by the talented Andrick Albor from the Roy Brizio Street Rods stable, truly a piece of art . To lighten things up, we had a carbon fiber replica of the  aluminum panels formed by Finish-line Composites in Benicia California.  The new car still hosts the worlds' quickest  small block Chevrolet on the planet.  Tony Bernardini will continue to head up the Crew Chief duties along with his seasoned Champion Crew .

 

Thank you

 

The McLennan Family
