In a new endeavor for the ProCharger Limited Drag Radial Championship Series for 2018 is the addition of a contingency program. For those who do not know, a contingency program will reward racers for being loyal customers to their brands for the long drawn out season. The companies who desire to sign up for the contingency program will give back to those who supported them in the beginning, which we are a huge fan of here in the Limited Drag Radial category.
Bill Miller Engineering has stepped up to the plate and will be our very first contingency sponsor for the 2018 edition of the Championship Series, brought to you by ProCharger. Bill Miller Engineering’s roots in the hard-core race engine parts business go back more than a generation. In 1970, fresh out of the Navy, Bill Miller worked as Warehouse Manager at National Speed and Marine in Los Angeles. This speed shop campaigned a Top Fuel Dragster. In his early years in the automotive aftermarket, not only did Bill Miller get to know the sales and distribution end of the business, but he learned about drag racing by crewing on a Top Fuel car. In 1975, BME became a reality in a 1200 square foot building in Long Beach, California.
Flash forward to 2018 and Bill Miller Engineering occupies a 20,000 sq. ft. facility just north of the Carson City Airport in Nevada. A state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is divided into four sections, one for each of BME’s major products, Rods, Pistons, Wrist Pins and Superchargers. A clean, well-lit factory area is loaded with the latest in machine tool technology including Okuma and Haas CNC Machining Centers and Ikegai CNC Turning Centers. Located in the same building are warehousing, executive offices and the BME Top Fuel race team facility. Bill Miller Engineering is the consummate American business success story. It began a Generation ago with one man’s idea how high-quality connecting rods for drag race engines should be made. Today, BME thrives with scores of loyal, quality-driven employees teaming up to manufacture the best aluminum connecting rods, forged racing pistons, wrist pins and superchargers that money can buy.

For the contingency program, BME is putting up right at $6,000.00 worth of bonuses for the racers, $500 to the winner and $250 to the runner-up in all eight points races, dating back to Lights Out 9 and the Holley EFI Outlaw Street Car Reunion V. To be deemed eligible, the racers must have at least two clearly visible BME decals on the car for the entire event (left and right sides, or front and back). These stickers are available through BME or can be available at the track at the next ProCharger Championship Series event for the LDR category.
