IRVINE, Calif.– Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series announced today that CP-Carrillo–the leader in the high-performance piston market–will once again be the Official Pistons & Rods of the USMTS in 2017.
“After our first successful year of partnering with the USTMS we knew we found a good home,” said Bryce Mulvey, Domestic Sales Manager for CP-Carrillo. “This year, as the Official Pistons and Rods of the USTMS, we are looking forward to being out at the track, talking with racers and engine builders.
“The feedback has been invaluable as we constantly look for ways to make our parts better at the highest level of competition.”
While most racing enthusiasts know that CP-Carrillo is the leader in the high performance piston market, many may not know is that CP-Carrillo is home to one of the most advanced, state-of-the-art piston and rod manufacturing facilities in the world.
Located in Irvine, Calif., their facility and capabilities are second to none in this respect, and the new Bullet Series division of CP-Carrillo is a perfect fit into an already advanced system.
CP-Carrillo introduced the Bullet Series of high-performance pistons and rods in 2015 to stay current as the industry shifts to new directions. This series of pistons and rods are the flagship for this new venture and incorporate everything that has made CP-Carrillo the industry leader.
