Harper's Racing has established clientele all over the country from Florida to California and as far north to Canada. Just in Florida alone, he has serviced over 840 satisfied customers. Rick's car racing experience dates back to the late 60's and early 70's when he drag raced Super Stock (SS/HA & B/SA, D/SA) Pontiac Firebirds. Working at Champion Racing Engines in Montreal, Canada in the late 70's, he was the Top engine builder in the area where he built small block Chevy and Pontiac engines. Eventually he moved to Florida. It was here Rick started experimenting and racing Buick Grand Nationals as a hobby. He was so successful with them that his friends convinced him to open a Buick Grand National high performance racing shop in 1990. Named Harper's Racing, Up to date, Rick has built over 685 motors. Rick is now working on three New Projects for this year, his first is a Grand National from Quebec Canada. The owner Stephan Jacques from St. Leon de Standon has a beautiful craftsmanship GN with a 540 cubic inch V8 Dart Block with twin Pro Mod 94 turbos. The car should run mid 6's' at 220 mph in the 1/4. The next project is Nestor Valdes with his 87 Grand National from Fort Lauderdale. Rick's expertise in building high performance engines for Buick Grand Nationals has spilled over onto his personally owned C6 Z06 427 cubic inch Corvette. Some trick modifications gave it over 480 rear wheel horsepower ( 560HP at engine crank ) with K&N Air intake system and the LS1 Edit performance tune, it produces 10.80.s@129 mph in the quarter mile on 325/30/18 Drag Radials with 93-octane fuel. It still gets over 30 MPG at 75 MPH. Rick also purchased a GNX in July of 2007 from the original owner out of Rhode Island. This car has always been garage kept and never driven in the rain. Now it's going to be only garage kept for future investment. His new project now for his own personal use will be a new 2015 Z-06 Corvette with the new 625 HP Super charge engine and a 8 speed automatic transmission. Should be on the market by January 2015. Check it out on the internet.
