Ed’s Machine opened in 1977. Our owner Ed has been involved in all kinds of high performance work for 30-plus years. He personally has been involved in NHRA Super Stock Drag Racing since 1973, in which he has driven and participated every season through 1993.
After taking a break in 1994 and 1995, he returned to NHRA. Super Stock Racing in 1996 and started working on his DFI fuel injection in 1998. This was the second DFI fuel injection that we know of in Super Stock. Ed has been participating in NHRA Super Stock racing for over 25 years.
Since Ed's retirement in October 2016, Jarrod West, his long-term mentee, has taken over the business. Jarrod has been mentored by from the time he graduated high school up until Ed retired last year. He interned for one year entirely free. After that year, Jarrod was offered a full time position, and hasn't looked back since. When Ed approached Jarrod saying he was going to retire, he asked if Jarrod would be interested in the business. He knew I could not pass up the opportunity to carry on a 40 year legacy as well as make a name and legacy for myself.
The employee's at Ed's are also actively involved in NHRA Drag Racing and other forms of motorsports. We have been involved with many engine programs from slant six Chryslers to big cubic inch Fords.
Since we opened our doors in 1977 in Abilene, TX, Ed's Machine has been dedicated to the highest standards of quality, innovation, and technical superiority for the automotive and high-performance markets.
