Prefix announces 2019 Trans Am trackside engine support program


Prefix Corporation, a recognized Tier-1 supplier and advanced concept vehicle and prototype leader, has announced an expanded customer support program for the 2019 Trans Am season.

Prefix Performance Operations Manager Rick Talbot said, “After a tremendous 2018 season that included our engines powering two of the top three finishers in TA2, including winning the championship, Prefix is thrilled to expand our trackside support program for the 2019 season.”

To support a growing number of teams relying on Prefix power, Prefix will have a technical support trailer at all 2019 TA2 national events.

“Our technical trailer will provide a new level of service for our customers,” Talbot said. “The vehicle will house parts, tools, components, and complete engines to keep our customers competitive on the track.”

“Trans Am is very excited to have Prefix on-board as not only a race engine supplier, but also for their trackside engine support,” said Trans Am Series President John Clagett. “Prefix clearly exhibited a commitment towards supporting teams in the series last season, and we’re thrilled that they’ll be taking their technical support to the next level in 2019.”

Stevens-Miller Racing owner Joe Stevens said, “Having Prefix engines under our hoods last season was huge! More importantly however, having the Prefix Performance Engine Team looking over our power plants was absolutely critical throughout the season. Consistency, just as much as horsepower wins championships, and Prefix gave us both. For 2019, SMR will use Prefix power exclusively in all of our entries, including Dodge, Ford, and Chevy.

“Having a Tier 1 supplier to the OEMs involved in Trans Am is tremendous not just for our team but the series as whole.”

Additionally, Prefix will have access to the Stevens-Miller Racing (SMR) Corporate Hospitality Center to meet with current and potential clients. Prefix’s initial participation with Stevens and his team has been a successful venture, and has now grown substantially.

Prefix President Eric Zeile said, “Trans Am represents a great opportunity for us to promote the Prefix brand. Due to the confidential nature of the prototype work we are involved with, many performance enthusiasts aren’t yet familiar with who we are, or what we do. The Trans Am series is one part of an aggressive marketing effort to change that. In fact, our current technical partnership agreements with Liqui Moly and Berryman Products would not have been possible without our participation with Stevens-Miller Racing and the Trans Am series.”

Michigan-based Prefix Corporation is a recognized leader in the creation of prototype designs, mock-ups, and full-scale concept vehicles for the automotive and aviation industries. 2019 will mark 40 successful years in business. In addition to competitive race engines, their engine and performance division is involved with specialty performance vehicles and a wide range of engine development and testing services. With over 250 employees and four impressive Midwest facilities, Prefix offers an extremely wide range of capabilities, providing clients with a one-stop shop of services.
