Stevens-Miller Racing Partners With Prefix Corporation For 2018 Trans-Am Engine Program
Columbia City, Indiana (February 14, 2018) – Stevens-Miller Racing announced today a new partnership with Prefix Corporation as their engine supplier for their fleet of HEMI-powered Dodge Challenger Trans-Am race cars for the 2018 season.
Stevens-Miller Racing is coming off a very successful year and has been focused on furthering the development of their cars and partnering with companies that share the same goals.
“The key to our success has always been centered on the value we provide to our customer,” said Joe Stevens, owner of Stevens-Miller Racing. “Allowing racers to leverage our experience and equipment at a lower cost compared to building their own car and team. This partnership with Prefix only strengthens that package and will bring better results for everyone involved. It’s our honor and joy to represent Prefix this year and we look forward to putting all of our cars at the front of the grid in 2018!”
Stevens-Miller Racing will field four TA2 Dodge Challengers making it one of the larger arrive and drive suppliers in Trans Am and the largest Dodge presence in all Trans Am Classes combined. The newly re-homologated 392 Hemi engine features an enhanced power curve that will perform strongly against the Chevrolet and Ford Competitors.
“We’re thrilled to support the Stevens/Miller team this year.” explained Prefix Corporation’s Marketing Director, Jhan Dolphin. “The team is an experienced group of passionate professionals, and we look forward to seeing the results of their hard work.”
For many years, Prefix has enjoyed a successful history for the development and testing of both 392 and 426 CID Hemi Gen3 engines. In 2017, Prefix completed “turnkey” Hemi 392/426 crate engines that offer every component necessary to put them directly into a muscle car, street rod or modern performance vehicle. The Trans Am (TA2) series provided a great test bed for further development and accelerated the performance and durability testing. The Prefix 392 race engines that currently power the Stevens-Miller RacING Team are comprised of many of the same parts as the current crate engines now available to performance enthusiasts across the country.
