Champion Speed Shop race team was started in 1959 by the NHRA Hall of Fame inductee Jim McLennan. Today the legacy goes on in a nostalgia top fuel front engine dragster.


Champion Speed Shop readies for 2017

The 2017 season for the Adam Sorokin led Champion Speed Shop Team is ready for battle.  Tony Bernardini's crew has been busy giving the "Worlds quickest small block Chevrolet" a detailed frame up strip down re-do to get ready for possibly the most competitive field in AA/FD history.  All new components were purchased for the 2017 season, the only remaining pieces were the 3 CN billet blocks, everything else was retired and replaced with updated new parts.  The only other remaining used parts that we brought back was the full Champion Speed Shop Crew.  The McLennan family is so fortunate to have what we consider the best driver and crew in the business.  Thanks to everyone for their continued support,
