Victoria Smith


     Since 1972, Smith Performance Specialties has been known for its innovative chassis engineering which is proven at drag strips through out the U.S.A. and Canada.  Back in 1987, the SPS-built Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera became the prototype of a front-wheel drive car transformed into a rear-wheel drive race car.  This Ciera became the model for N.H.R.A.'s guidelines on front-wheel drive conversions.

Quality Experience

     After that first Ciera rolled out of our Cayuga, Ontario shop, the SPS work force of talented individuals have constructed more than 160 front-wheel drive conversions for accomplished racers in North America.  Their quality and workmanship has earned Smith Performance a place on the Car Craft All-Star Drag Racing Team as Sportsman Chassis Builder of the Year for 1992, 1993, and 2000.  The first-hand racing experience of F.J. Smith and his interaction with many drivers allows Smith Performance Specialties to provide racers with custom products for a multitude of applications.  

Racers' Choice

     SPS cars race throughout North America and dominate the final round of N.H.R.A. events.  This record of final round appearances is not surprising when you look at the long list of  clients who choose Smith Performance quality and innovation.  This list includes event winners, best engineered cars, best appearing cars, and many returning customers such as Jeff Taylor, Jeg Coughlin, Wally Clark, F.J. Smith, Abe Loewen, Jim Boburka, and Joe Scott as well as an endless list of others who choose SPS.  In addition, F.J. and employees continue to engineer applications for a variety of unique race cars outside of Super Stock.
