Drag Race History | 1/4 Mile at a Time
George and Bruce started Perkins Brothers in 1976 with 2 purposes in mind; have a business to generate revenue and to spend that revenue on their drag racing endeavours (those of you who race know EXACTLY what I’m talking about). Actually, they didn’t plan to spend all of the revenue on racing but the more you get into it the bigger the bills get.
They ran their first car in 1978 and were regular participants in the NHRA Div. 6 circuit travelling up and down the west coast of Canada and tha U.S. Their last year on the circuit was in 2004 but they still regularly race at Mission Raceway, in Mission B.C.
The experience that they acquired from racing and building the cars carries over into the Perkins Brothers shop. There is an art to getting the most from your vehicle not just on the performance but also in the efficiency of the vehicle. Small changes like these can have a huge impact on the track and on the street.
