The 2017 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge, presented by HOT ROD Network, took place October 2nd at the University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH). This challenge is said to be the “purest interpretation of a motorsport, where we have literally made a sport out of motors”. Engine Masters has been running for 16 straight years now and is the biggest engine builders challenge event in existence!
In the engine masters challenge, teams have 35 minutes to make three runs on the University of Northwestern Ohio’s Superflow engine dyno. Competitors can make as many pulls as they would like in their time frame, also having the ability to tune during this time. Some teams work frantically to get the most power extracted from their engine by adjusting ignition settings, timing, and carb jets.
This is where BES came in and took second place in the Traditional Muscle Class, only missing first place by 70 points, which isn’t much! They had strong competition this year, and their 451cid big block Mopar put down a respectable 670hp and 640ft lb of torque! “The SBC entry by Creason Racing was a very strong engine and scored very well” they said. Their Mopar BB engine is quite impressive, especially with their choice to use American Racing Headers to meet their power goals in this challenge.
