With their technical expertise and hands-on engineering experience on site at every race, we were very pleased when the opportunity came for them to become our official friction supply partner as well. It was particularly gratifying as a racing organization to create a five-year expanded relationship with their organization.”

“We have enjoyed our affiliation with the Series since 2010,” said Steve Ruiz, director of engineering, StopTech. “At StopTech we are proud of our commitment to being the best in high performance brake systems. Our relationship with World Challenge has given our company the opportunity to showcase our big brake kits, as well as our whole range of street and race brake components. We have worked with the Series to create a five-year deal that reflects our respect for the series and our expectations of continued growth and success for both the series and for StopTech.
