Perhaps nothing shows off pure horsepower like drag racing. Cars that go from a dead stop to over 330 MPH in about 4.5 seconds create an extremely demanding environment for engine parts to function in. CLEVITE® engine bearings are the only engine bearings that every single top fuel team exclusively trusts. Where CLEVITE engine bearings have no competition in terms of strength and durability, the market for piston rings is much more competitive with many manufacturers offering rings that can get the job done. MAHLE Performance piston rings are the only ring of choice for several of Drag Racing's top teams including Kalitta Motorsports and John Force Racing.


With more than 20 categories of competition, including Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, and Pro Stock Motorcycle at the Professional level, CLEVITE remains at the top of everyone’s list when it comes to race engine bearings. CLEVITE engine bearings and MAHLE piston rings are the only choice when you’re pushing a vehicle to its limit with 7,000 HP going 330 MPH in 4.4 seconds flat down a 1/4 mile strip of pavement.
