In 2004, we formed the Okuma High Performance Motorsports industry team. The sole goal of this team is to develop machining technology that gives shops a competitive advantage in the production of precision performance components—and, therefore, a distinct edge on the racetrack. Like well-built race cars, our machining products are built from the ground up, and they set the standard for the production of engine components ranging from pistons to cylinder heads, and from camshafts to wheels. Today, we work with partners such as Richard Childress Racing (RCR), Chip Ganassi Racing Teams, Inc., Comp Cams, Xceldyne Technologies, Diamond Racing, and Del West USA. Together we work to refine our precision machining techniques, all for the sake of seeing the checkered flag as often as possible.
