Charlie Buck Jr, has been building championship winning horsepower for over 35 years.

The first dose of winning came at Hillsville Automotive where the first engine that Charlie assembled won the IHRA Super Stock world Championship in 1982. That was when he felt “I have the knack for cylinder heads”. 1985 brought a new job at Sonny’s Automotive. Pro Stock was the hottest thing in racing, with engine builder wars. Innovations like the semi hemi and split dominator’s, was what Charlie was a part of. In 1988 “Tricky” Rickie Smith needed an engine builder for IHRA Pro Stock he tapped on Buck for the duties. That was the first of back to back Pro Stock Championships. 1992 proved to be historic with the first Mountain Motor Pro Stock run of 200 MPH, at Darlington Dragway. This would be Charlie’s last year employed for Rickie. New Years Day 1993 was when Buck Racing Engines opened.

Buck Racing Engines Prides itself on doing everything in house. Whether it be street stock or a blown Hemi in Pro Extreme or your weekend hot rod we can help you.
