ED PINK NAMED TO SEMA HALL OF FAME

Hot Rod Deluxe - - Roddin’ @ Random -

At a cer­e­mony in July, en­gine builder Ed Pink joined the rac­ing and per­for­mance after­mar­ket le­gends who make up the SEMA Hall of Fame. As SEMA pointed out, while Ed Pink Rac­ing En­gines has “helped rac­ers set records and win cham­pi­onships, it’s his ded­i­ca­tion, in­no­va­tion, and con­tri­bu­tion to the in­dus­try that set him apart from all the others.” Af­ter work­ing along­side per­for­mance pi­o­neers like Lou Baney, Ed Isk­ende­rian, and the Edel­brocks, Pink opened his first shop in 1957. Since then, he has ap­plied his en­gine-build­ing ex­per­tise most fa­mously to drag rac­ing, but also was in­volved in mo­tor­sports from the Baja 1000 to Le Mans. “Although Pink sold his orig­i­nal busi­ness about 10 years ago, he con­tin­ues to con­sult and ac­tively sup­ports pro­grams such as the SEMA Schol­ar­ship Foun­da­tion,” noted SEMA. Pink is al­ready a mem­ber of the Mo­tor­sports Hall of Fame in Detroit, the Don Gar­l­its In­ter­na­tional Drag Rac­ing Hall of Fame, and the Su­per Stock Hall of Fame.
