Over 30 Years in Motorsports

It’s in our blood.

At PEAK®, we’re not afraid to mix it up with the big boys. This is why we’ve been actively involved in motorsports for over 30 years. We identify with the straight shooters like John Force and Clint Bowyer, just two of the truly great racers who’ve been part of the PEAK family throughout the years.

Today, PEAK still aims to shock the motorsports establishment partly as a way to showcase the excellence and competitive quality of our family of brands, but mostly, because it’s so much fun. Look for our drivers and teams to challenge the heavy hitters in NASCAR, NHRA, and Dirt Late Model racing!
