The history of Bryant Racing starts with its Founder and Owner, Sonny Bryant who started out a fan and then became a racer himself. Once Sonny started racing, he quickly became a rising star in the Stock, Super Stock & Pro Stock divisions of the NHRA. During his racing career, Sonny won several National events and set speed and ET records along the way. When Sonny is asked why he stopped racing, his response is always “Because I didn’t like trying to get sponsors; I just wanted to find ways to make my car go faster!“. And that is precisely why Bryant Racing was started.
In addition to racing, Sonny started a race & automotive machine shop (BryantRacing) in 1973 and soon started engineering and building engines for other racers that in turn won races and set records. Sonny, being the perfectionist, was always looking for and wanting to use the best possible parts, which led to him actually producing a lot of his own parts and eventually crankshafts.
In 1983, Sonny developed and manufactured the first BRYANT Crankshaft and these crankshafts soon became the standard in racing! 39 years after starting Bryant Racing, Sonny still oversees all design, engineering and manufacturing of Bryant Racing Crankshafts. Sonny’s goal from the beginning was to make the best possible crankshaft, give his customers the best possible service and do it all for a fair price.
