For over 40 years, MSD Performance, formerly known as MSD Ignition, has been among the leaders in high performance and hardcore racing ignition systems. After entering the market in 1970, MSD’s capacitive discharge design technology offered the capability to spark multiple times, which was key with improving fuel economy and power in newer automobiles.
World class racers the likes of Pro Stock champion Bob Glidden took advantage of this powerful technology in those early years, and the ride has never stopped for MSD Performance. Today, MSD products are one of the top choices for professional and sportsman drag racers alike, and you’ll find their ignition systems on everything from leading racer Antron Brown’s Top Fuel dragster to footbrake ET cars at your local dragstrip.
At St. Louis, all four professional winners — Brown, Jack Beckman, and Erica Enders, were all fired with MSD ignition systems. The Fall Nationals in Dallas the week prior was also a clean sweep, as Brown, Bob Tasca III, Allen Johnson, and first-time winner Michael Ray all carried the MSD Performance banner into victory circle.
In other recent news from MSD, customer Larry Larson, who uses an MSD 8 igntiion system to fire his Moran Motorsports-built, turbocharged big block, scored his fifth straight Hot Rod Drag Week title in his Chevy Nova.
