Pettis Performance
Welcome at » Experience


We have been designing, machining, and building championship winning racing engines for over 30 years.  In recent history (since 2000) we have provided engines that have won over 10 championships in the PSCA drag racing series.  Our power-plants have held ET and MPH records in several different categories along the way.  Since 1999 we have had at least one engine in a final round at over 75% of the races held, and several times had multiple race winners at each event.  There has also been at least one of our engines in a championship winning car since 2000.  These kind of results speak for themselves.  To achieve this kind of winning record in heads-up drag racing reflects our dedication to provide engines on the cutting edge of horsepower and reliability.

We also provide on site track tuning and advice.  Jason Pettis is at every PSCA event and will be at the majority of, if not all of the WCHRA events held in 2008 and beyond.  Jason has several years of drag race engine, nitrous system, and chassis tuning experience.  And he loves to share his data with others. He has served as crew chief for Doug Sikora, together they won the Outlaw 10.5 tire championship for 3 years in a row. He has served as crew chief for Manny Figueroa where they earned 2 True Street championships and a couple runner up points finishes.  Not to mention 2 drag radial class runner up finishes in the largest west coast heads up drag racing event, the PSCA Street Car Super Nationals.  In late 2007 and continuing on into 2008 Jason has been assisting Mike Bowman with his BB Chevy twin turbo Pro Street car.  Learning the big tire and clutch system is a new challenge but one that is already following past results.  The duo grabbed a #1 WCHRA qualifier and runner up finish at their 1st race together.  2 races later they achieved the big win in the the premiere class with a #4 qualifying effort (6.47 @220) and a consistent string of 6.50’s to get the win at the PSCA finals in November.

2008 will surely add to the constantly growing database of Pettis Performance and keep our services on the leading edge of engine development and drag racing.
