Anyone who’s ever had an interest in cars and engines has likely had a love affair with the rumble of an engine. That symphony of sounds created by the engine’s parts humming in harmony. In many ways, that sound is like a fingerprint. It is the character of the car hiding under the hood. How could you not love it?
Many engines have similar rev notes, but some are very distinct, and that’s what Baldwin Racing Engines in Friedheim, MO is known for. Just like your favorite band, you can pick up that signature sound with only a few notes or lyrics. Well, so too can fans of Jeff Baldwin’s engines.
“The ‘Baldwin sound’ is something that people have said about our engines over the years,” Jeff says. “They say that from circle track to truck pulling to demolition derby, they are always able to tell that it is one of our engines because of the ‘Baldwin sound.’”
Jeff owns Baldwin Racing Engines and runs the shop along with his wife, DeAnna, and four other full-time employees. The shop, which opened in 2002, specializes in LS engine work for dirt track racing, demolition derby, drag racing, truck and tractor pulling, street stuff, diesel, and really a little bit of everything. Jeff first started Baldwin Racing Engines as a part time endeavor. Read full story at http://www.enginebuildermag.com/2018/03/440-ls-dirt-late-model-engine/
