Setting the standard for high performance motorsports components
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), Don Schumacher Racing (DSR), 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.
Richard Childress Racing (RCR)
As one of the premier NASCAR racing teams, Richard Childress Racing knows the importance of precision in the production of competition chassis and engine components. At the RCR Campus, the practical application of precision machining to complex parts is realized in the Richard Childress Racing/Okuma Technology Center, which is home to 15 Okuma machines that produce a variety of competition parts. With the use of ADMAC Parts and the Okuma OSP control, RCR engineers are able to program machines to meet and maintain the high standards demanded by NASCAR.
Established in 1998, Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) has grown to become the winningest organization in NHRA Drag Racing history, and further cemented its position as one of motorsports’ elite teams when it surpassed the ‘350 wins’ milestone during the 2020 season. DSR owns 19 world championships in three different NHRA categories, and including hall-of-fame team owner Don Schumacher’s five NHRA Funny Car triumphs from the 1970s, DSR has been successful in capturing 366 national event victories overall.
Headquartered in Brownsburg, Indiana, DSR campaigns the Maynard Family/Scag Power Equipment Top Fuel dragster in the NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series with fan-favorite Tony Schumacher at the helm. As an eight-time world champion and 85-time NHRA national event winner, Schumacher is the most decorated Top Fuel driver of all time.
DSR also campaigns three entries in the Factory Stock Showdown Series. The trio of DSR Dodge Drag Paks is piloted by former Pro Stock racer Mark Pawuk, David Davies, who made his NHRA debut with DSR in 2021, and Warren Walcher, who will compete in his first full FSS season in 2022.
