That has continued with Switzerâ€™s new business venture, Switzer Dynamics.
The first-year company is a contingency sponsor for the 2012 ADRL Tour, an exciting step for Switzer and a business he created this past off-season.
â€œWe have a lot of faith in the ADRL and we are excited to be working with them in 2012,â€ Switzer said. â€œWe thought it was the right thing to do, especially for the people supporting us.â€
Based in Denver, N.C., Switzer Dynamics manufactures and sells race products, specializing in nitrous and induction systems.
Switzer has nearly two decades of experience developing and designing products for many of the top names in drag racing, and his experienced staff includes Melissa Smith, Dan Carver and Warren Oâ€™Dell.
In a short time, Switzer Dynamics has also made a noticeable impact in the ADRLâ€™s Pro Nitrous and Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Modified classes.
Heâ€™s gained customers in both classes at a rapid rate, offering input and expertise that has previously led to numerous wins, records and championships for nitrous cars in the ADRL.
â€œBusiness has taken off quite a bit faster than I could have anticipated. Everyone has come together and weâ€™ve got a good group of people here,â€ Switzer said. â€œThe plan is to provide 100 percent customer support that is equal to all the racers. Iâ€™m going from pit-to-pit keeping their information quiet and giving everyone equal help.
â€œWeâ€™re not out there playing favorites. Whatever driver wins, that doesnâ€™t matter. I just want to try to make both cars go as fast as they can. If they have our decal, weâ€™re supporting them and helping them as much as we can.â€
Switzer Dynamicâ€™s focus is on manufacturing parts and working with induction parts and teams on the nitrous end of racing.
At the companyâ€™s new facility, Switzer uses state-of-the-art technology and equipment, offering services ranging from custom nitrous installations, custom intake and manifold designs to manufacturing, flow testing, fabrication and more.
Switzer Dynamics also offers carbon fiber nitrous bottles, bottle blankets, shear plates and jet kits.
â€œWe built this place to be very flexible as far as what we build,â€ Switzer said. â€œWe are capable of changing with the times and demand of products very easily.Â We can manufacture just about anything.
â€œWe work on a lot of special projects, but nitrous is still my favorite thing to work on. My focus is still on that.â€
In the near future, Switzer Dynamics also plans to have products available at each race for teams in the Pro Nitrous and Pro Modified classes.
â€œThese nitrous cars are a real challenge, just to get them down the track and keep the engines together,â€ Switzer said. â€œItâ€™s one of the hardest classes to be successful in, but I really enjoy those challenges.â€
The fourth stop on the 10-race 2012 ADRL Tour takes place on June 1-2 at Gateway Motorsports Park with the Gateway Drags IV presented by CarSafe.
