I would like to let you guys know that I will be using Alpha Engines in my nitro cars for the 2018 season! I would like to thank Jon Dell and the whole team for giving me this opportunity. Having tested the engines I am super pleased with the performance so far. I look forward to racing for Alpha, starting at Westmill for the 1st round of the BRCA Nationals this coming weekend.
