Say What!

“So, I had four Outlaw wins coming into today and I promise you those four Outlaw wins would be in my, arguably top-five, definitely top-ten of my favorite wins of my life,To get number five here with my own race car and a group of friends working on this thing is really special.” Christopher Bell winning Haubstadt IN World of Outlaws

"I struggled pretty hard the first half of the race. I started watching Christopher and then I seen DJ (Foos) poking his nose in there and it started to rubber up there a little and I started creeping and creeping and pretty soon we were pretty good and I could start cheating the wing forward. I got going pretty good in one and two and I had a good race with Cap....he raced me hard and clean. It was a lot of fun. I've never won a 50 lap race before so that's pretty cool. Hats off to Rob and Gary for working their asses off all night and all the fans for sticking out this cold," Skylar Gee FAST winner at Waynesfield Raceway Park OH

"It's been a long time since I've been out of the front straightaway, I don't even remember what it feels like," Sam Hafertepe Jr winning ASCS at Creek County Speedway OK

BP Fabrication saw a opportunity that no other manufacture has thought to venture into. These arms are made from one solid piece of aluminum requiring no heating up of the material to anneal it and bend to the correct offset. A solid billet arm will provide a much stronger arm with far less twist and a much more consistent feel in the torsion bar! These torsion arms will also work on a Spike Short arm car as well as the Bullet Chassis. 10/14
