Öhlins Racing Joins NASCAR Competition Partner Program

Öhlins is currently the exclusive supplier of shock absorbers for the NASCAR Cup Series Next Gen car platform.

Racing suspension supplier Öhlins Racing announced it is joining the NASCAR Competition Partner program.

An extension of NASCAR’s Next Gen Supplier program, the Competition Partner program allows automotive-based performance companies to promote their affiliation with the NASCAR organization, as well as products it supplies for the Next Gen Car, to fans, customers, and the motorsports industry at large.

“It is an honor for Öhlins to be joining the NASCAR Competition Partner program,” says Henrik Johansson, managing director, Öhlins Racing. “This marks an important milestone for our legacy in racing, and we are excited for the opportunity to showcase the revolutionary technologies we have developed for the Next Gen cars.”

Öhlins, which first started developing components for NASCAR in 1994, is currently the exclusive supplier of shock absorbers for the NASCAR Cup Series Next Gen car platform. Since the start of the 2022 season, all teams competing in the series have been running the highly advanced, five-way adjustable version of the Öhlins TTR coilover damper featured in elite racing series such as IndyCar and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Cup Series TTR damper was developed and tested by Öhlins engineers and representatives from NASCAR and is designed to help teams quickly dial in precise damping characteristics to achieve maximum performance on various track conditions.

“We have been working with NASCAR for almost 30 years. During this time, we have been committed to developing and supplying products that push the limits of performance and address the unique challenges that come with this form of racing,” said Scott MacDonald, managing director, Öhlins USA. “Now, as we enter into the Competition Partner program, we look forward to building on our cooperation with NASCAR and finding new ways to connect with our customers, industry peers, and NASCAR fans across the country.”
