In a small, two-stall garage 32 years ago, Goodwin Competition, Inc. was started by owner Todd Goodwin.
The shop is very diverse according to Goodwin who says they work on dirt, late-model, sprint car, offshore marine, drag racing, and circle track engines. This diversity ultimately led Goodwin to design his own engine suitable for many of these applications.
For two and a half years Goodwin designed, prototyped, manufactured, tested and perfected the Goodwin Competition Billet Aluminum Semi Hemi engine.
Goodwin did all of the R&D work on it, and since the shop has its own Spintron he was able to run dynamic tests, which made it a more exciting project.
