BRIGHTON, Mich. October 11, 2016; Dirk Stratton of Stratton Racing was named the Formula DRIFT Pro 2 class “Rookie of the Year” after a fourth-place finish in the overall 2016 season point standings. The newcomer earned 191.00 points driving a 2009 C6 Corvette powered by a Lingenfelter Performance Engineering LS7 V8 engine.
Stratton drives the only Corvette competing in the Formula DRIFT classes and is the only competitor using a Lingenfelter power plant, which he says contributed to his outstanding season results. The rookie competitor also relied on Lingefelter’s expert engineering team to lend the technical support that helped his vehicle reach optimal performance during each competition.
This week I had the great privilege of having Ken Lingenfelter, owner of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and the incredible Lingenfelter Collection, on the show to talk about his lifelong passion for cars, business, and charity.
For over 40 years, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been creating some of the most powerful performance vehicles on the market. In addition, Ken started and owns the Lingenfelter Collection, one of America’s premier private car collections with over 150 rare and very desirable cars.
Although the Lingenfelter Collection it is closed to the general public, Ken regularly hosts large fundraising events throughout the year and very generously donates all of the proceeds to the many charities he supports.

Keeping the Camaro company will be Lingenfelter’s C7 Corvette Z06, producing 720 hp after LPE’s stage one package.

The good folks in Bowling Green had barely finished pushing the first production C7 Stingray out the door before Lingenfelter Engineering Performance (LPE) snagged one for research and development. More than one, actually.
Indeed, while most people were still coming to grips with the Stingray’s rhomboid tail lamps, Lingenfelter’s engineers and technicians in Decatur, Indiana, had already yanked the car’s LT1 engine and were testing different camshaft grinds and ported heads on it…
