“Chris is an all around good guy as well as a good business man,” says Kevin Kleinweber. “The more we are involved with each other, the stronger our bond becomes. As his business grows he helps us more and in turn we help him more.”

Joining forces with Bishop was good fit. “We are very selective about who we partner with,” says Ridgeway. “Racers like to buy from racers so it really helps have people like Chris who are racers and engine builders sell our product.”
