BITTERN LAKE, Alberta --

Three time IHRA Funny Car Champion Rob Atchison and ACE Manufacturing have joined forces in a three year deal that will see the Atchison family funny car compete at races in Western Canada and United States." It is really exciting being able to join up with the ACE Racing and Manufacturing family." states Atchison. "With all of the instability surrounding IHRA and the Alcohol Funny Car class coupled with the addition of my son Wyatt I felt it was time for a change. I got a chance to meet Harold Parfett at the Rocky Mountain Nationals and we hit it off. We have been talking racing and throwing ideas back and forth since July. We are very happy to finally be able to announce we will be racing with them for the next three years and possibly beyond."

Atchison will join the successful Plaizier family at Team ACE Racing. "Eddy, Casey and Frankie have a history of winning, they are great racers and I'm very excited to meet them, watch them race and become a part of their racing family" stated Rob.

This new racing "Family" is going to take it one step further as Atchison Machine Service Inc. of London, Ontario will serve as engine builder for the ACE Manufacturing Pro Nostalgia Funny Car. "We are eager to get involved with the 7.50 nostalgia funny car combination. We know that we can apply all of the machining and assembling techniques we use on our Top Alcohol car and give the IBAA funny car the longevity and consistency it will need to win races." Also as Canada's only Lenco transmission dealer Atchison Machine will be in charge of transmission service and repair for the entire team.
