CP-Carrillo Race Day 2018
CP-Carrillo celebrated its 2nd annual Raceday – a day where we honor our racing legacy and customers who support us. In addition we celebrated some of our company milestones anniversaries: 20 years of CP pistons, 10 years of CP-Carrillo and our more recent Arias acquisition. It was a fun filled event where our employees got to enjoy delicious food from the Bacon Nation food truck, listen to the Green Natives Rock & Roll Band and cruise around looking at the race cars, bikes, boats and more on display all while meeting and catching up with industry friends, customers and colleagues. We had a spectacular array of beautiful CP-Carrillo powered motocross, Flat track and Street bikes, Nostalgia, Top Fuel and Funny cars as well as a Pulling Tractor and Bonneville roaster on display. However, the highlight of the event was the Mega Rita Nitro Mixer: 8000 Horsepower Nitro fueled engine, blending up three 5 gallon buckets of delicious ice drinks in merely seconds. We also celebrated our very own CP-Carrillo sponsored Top Alcohol Funny Car 2017 NHRA World Champion, Shane Westerfield with our employees. It was a true hands-on experience, where employees got to experience what is it is like to sit in the driver seat with these high horse powered race engines roaring. NHRA Top Fuel Harley Davidson motorcycle rider Tony Ruggerio performed a “burn out” in the parking lot, laying down a stripe of burned rubber to finish of our day of celebrations…. As most good things, the day came to an end, but we are anxiously looking forward to our next annual Raceday event.
