"Our research and development program is the best in the business," says Schmidt. "We don't build cookie cutter crate engines. We build custom competition racing engines that win." Over the years, that has certainly proven to be true. Schmidt Racing customers have set over 40 records in Comp Eliminator and won many Division Championships, as well as 22 national events in NHRA Pro Stock. In 2002, Steve even provided the horsepower for The Spirit of DUNLOP, a car commissioned by Dunlop Tires. Fitted with Schmidt's powerful 1300 HP 585 cubic inch big block Chevy engine, the car broke the World Land Speed Record using standard production tires as well as the South African Land Speed Record.

The future looks bright for this engine builder to the champions and Steve is currently working on some new NHRA Pro Stock engine projects. "I am also developing some new 5.2 and 5.3 bore center +860 cubic inch engines, which will be outfitted with K&N filters," says Schmidt. "We use K&N filters exclusively on all of our race engines. We offer a one year warranty on our products, so we can't take a chance on using anything but the very best parts."
