KAASE ADDRESSES AETC

Written by Moore Good Ink Jon Kaase, the 59-year-old famed race engine builder from Winder, Georgia, will be addressing the 22nd annual AETC just prior to this year’s PRI exhibition at the Orange County Convention Center South, Orlando, Florida. Four-time winner of the celebrated Engine Masters Challenge, Kaase says, “I’m looking forward to the opportunity of speaking to the everyday hot rodder at the conference, and I’m hoping to share with him the commonsense techniques we apply to the building of the hot rod engine. Often engine building discussions are complex and can become meaningless to some of the audience. My address will be down-to-earth in the hope I can tell the hot rodder something he didn’t know before.” Jon Kaase Racing Engines’ efforts are well documented, winning a dozen or more IHRA Pro Stock championships and an NHRA Pro Stock championship. In the past three years they expanded their operation by introducing their Boss Nine hot rod engine and have enjoyed remarkable sales both in this country as well as down-under in the Australasia markets. The three-day AETC (Advanced Engineering Technology Conference) runs from Monday, November 28 to Wednesday, November 30, and will be held in Room S330. Assigned speaking times will be available on the AETC website mid-October.      ...

WILSON MANIFOLDS ANNOUNCES NEW APPOINTMENT

Written by Moore Good Ink Earlier this week induction specialists Wilson Manifolds welcomed David Secunda to their fold as their new director of technical sales and marketing. “We’re delighted to have David join us,” announced Keith Wilson, “and we feel that all our customers will appreciate the benefits of his 16 years in the performance industry.” The craft of creating race-winning induction systems or nitrous oxide kits is part inspiration but mostly know-how and hard work and the Wilson people have been perfecting their techniques for over 26 years. “I have admired Wilson Manifolds’ work for years and joining them,” says David, “provides me with my greatest opportunity yet to help racers, race teams and engine builders. From grass root levels to Top Fuel and NASCAR and from marine to dirt ovals, I’m looking forward to helping the racers and engine builders find the advantage they are all seeking.” Success breeds success and so far 2011 has brought immense rewards to Wilson customers with triumphs in Top Fuel, Pro Stock, Pro Mod, NASCAR, Dirt Late Models, Dirt Modified, Daytona Prototypes and a host of other classes. NHRA Pro Stock championship leader Jason Line insists, “It is this very diversity that keeps Wilson Manifolds at the top of their game, and yet their skills are affordable and available to all.” Clearly, mediocrity and race engine advancements do not combine.   Contact Information: Phone: (954) 771-6216 ext. 205 Email: Dsecunda@wilsonmanifolds.com AOL Messenger: BDaveHPWilsonNPF...

DEMON CARBURETION & BG FUEL SYSTEMS… RESURRECTED

 Written by Moore Good Ink The Demon brand of carburetors emerged in the late nineteen-nineties in Dahlonega, Georgia. Twenty-five miles away resided two awesome Bills from Dawsonville: one Elliott the other Goldberg. Elliott had distinguished himself in the mid- and late-eighties as a formidable oval track racer, winning the Winston Million; the other, Goldberg, a decade later, had stirred television wrestling audiences across the nation into frenzy. The former football player of imposing proportions, bald-headed, 6ft 5in and 290lb, also loved hot rods and as a persuasive advocate for Demon agreed to act as the ambassador for the new carburetor brand at the forthcoming SEMA show. Upon his arrival he was mobbed by fans and well-wishers and toward the end of a 10am television interview in the SEMA halls the limousine driver said, “Once you get him moving hold your momentum or he’ll never reach the Demon booth!” Motivated by this considerable insight Goldberg was duly escorted to his destination in short order, and the adjacent queues of young men eagerly awaiting the autographs of voluptuous young booth babes defected and blocked the isles as they rushed to join Goldberg’s Demon line-followed by the voluptuous young booth babes! A dozen years later Demon Carburetion looks forward to celebrating its second coming at this year’s SEMA show. Dahlonega, GA: After a brief hiatus, plans are moving ahead rapidly to revive the popular Demon Carburetion and BG Fuel Systems brands. This new business will be run by a fresh team of race and performance enthusiasts that is committed to bringing you high quality products and exceptional customer service. Stay tuned for...
