Racing / Performance

To say that we have a unique perspective into the racing and performance world would be an understatement. What started as a sponsorship for local racers by Trenton Forging evolved into a complete additional division: Autosport Development LLC., a professional race team and race vehicle building facility. We’ve competed in professional racing series since the 1990’s in classes such as the Pirelli World Challenge, IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Series, and the esteemed Trans-Am series.

*For years, our forging company has been the top producer of USA-made performance connecting rods, currently used in NASCAR, offshore boat racing, off-road, NHRA, and more.

Aside from connecting rods, we are also known for:

  • Drive Yokes
  • Driveline Yokes
  • Rocker Arms
  • Spindles
  • Steering Arms
  • Steering Yokes
  • Tie Rod Ends
  • Transmission Parts
  • Uprights
  • Driveline Flanges
  • Linkages
  • Shifter Parts
  • Spindles
  • Steering Crosses
  • Sway Bar Links
  • Tow Eyes
  • Universal Joints

Working with Trenton Forging, I learned that “no” was not in their vocabulary. No matter how challenging a part seemed to be, they went the extra mile to think out of the box in order to find ways to forge that product. Not only did they find a solution, but they did it in a timely manner. James W. Barnthouse
