Diamond Pistons contingency partner for FIA and EDRS car classes
Diamond Pistons are a well-known name in European drag racing. Michigan based Diamond Racing Products join the 2016 Speedgroup Contingency Program for EDRS car classes and FIA classes. “Racers love contingency programmes, and it allows Diamond to give back to the racers that support our company”, said Grant Campbell, Sales & Technical Support representative of Diamond Racing Products.
Diamond Racing Products were founded by Jim Cavalero, Nick Plantus and Butch Elkens in the late ’60s primarily as an engine building shop. It wasn’t until the ’90s that Diamond stopped building engines and switched its primary focus to the manufacturing of forged racing pistons. Today, Diamond are owned by Bob Fox, have two buildings (Manufacturing & Shipping) and over 50 employees.
Grant Campbell, Sales & Technical Support representative of the Clinton Township (Michigan) based company is willing to tell a lot more about Diamond Racing Products. “We are selling racing pistons, both billet and forged, shelf stocking and custom orders. Diamond Pistons set themselves apart from other manufactures in a few ways. Diamond pride themselves on customer service and quality. When using Diamond for your engine build, you know that you’re getting the best product, designed by the best engineers, run on the most state of the art equipment in the industry”, said Campbell.
Diamond pistons are not only used in drag racing. “We manufacture pistons for all kinds of motorsports, ranging from Bracket Racing, Top Fuel and Pro Stock, to Circle Track, Truck Pulling, and Offshore Power Boat Racing. But we only have a contingency program in drag racing. We want to give back to the racers that support our company, and with the Speedgroup contingency program we can better serve and give back to our customer base in Europe. The importance of contingency programmes in our marketing strategy is huge. As I already said, it allows Diamond to give back to the racers that support our company. It also gives the racers another incentive to run our products. The reactions of our customers about the contingency program are very positive. Racers love contingency programs and have no problem running decals and other requirements necessary to collect contingencies. We will see that in Europe too.”
