Parts Pro Recognizes Perfect Engine Builds At Hot Rodders Of Tomorrow Championship

The 2017 Excellence Cup winner was Team Meziere Enterprises, which achieved a perfect engine build in a national record-smashing time of 15:33.

The AAM Group, a Hot Rodders of Tomorrow sponsor through its Parts Pro performance-aftermarket marketing program, is recognizing the perfect engine builds by the Elite 8 teams that competed in the 2017 Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Dual National Championships held at the SEMA and PRI Shows.

AAM Program Sales Manager Jerry Simpson presented the awards at the season-ending event held at PRI. Teams that achieved at least one perfect engine build at one of the Dual National Championship events were awarded a plaque, while the team that clocked the fastest overall perfect engine was awarded the Excellence Cup, which is inscribed with that team’s name and school. This substantial trophy remains with the winning team for one year, whereupon it is transferred to the next year’s recipient.

The 2017 Excellence Cup winner was Team Meziere Enterprises, which achieved a perfect engine build in a national record-smashing time of 15:33.

Elite 8 Perfect Engine Build Honorees include:

  • Team Meziere Enterprises, Burton Center for Arts & Technology, Virginia (Instructor: Chris Overfelt)
  • Team Aeromotive, Eastern Oklahoma Tech Center, Oklahoma (Instructor: Jim LaFevers)
  • Team Fragola, Fremd High School, Illinois (Instructor: Steven Elza)
  • Team Fel-Pro, Tulsa Technology Center, Oklahoma (Instructor: Greg Gilliam)

  • Team Derale, Forsyth Central High School, Georgia (Instructor: Marlo Miranda)

“Parts Pro is proud to recognize the teamwork, effort and skill required to achieve a perfect engine build,” said Simpson. “We are honored to work with these inspiring students, and hope this recognition will encourage future participating teams to aspire to the highest levels of precision, pride and expertise in our industry.”
