Frankland Racing Supply began as a solution to a problem.
Founder Jim Frankland had been racing since 1931, and he was looking for a way
to quickly adapt his gear ratio to match the conditions of the track. The
existing design, known as the pumpkin, was very slow to change out. So Jim
designed the 6-bolt quick-change rear end, and without realizing it changed
Jim’s new rear end design was so successful he began
manufacturing parts for other racers, and in 1947, he launched Frankland Racing
Supply. In 1995, Jim Frankland was inducted into the Michigan Motor Sports Hall
Today, Frankland Racing continues to grow and innovate. Our design is still
based on Jim Frankland’s original idea, but we constantly look for ways to
improve the design – ways to make it lighter, faster, and stronger.
Our rear ends are used by countless drivers, and we ship
rear ends anywhere in the United States, and we have also sent parts to racers
in 5 different countries. Nearly all of our parts are manufactured in the
United States (with just one part made overseas, in Italy!), and over 80% of
them are made at our Saxonburg plant. Our local manufacturing process in our
22,500 square-foot facility lets us keep our prices affordable.
We’ve been a family-owned and operated business for over 7
decades, and we’re proud of it. Our talented team can complete same-day repairs
on rear ends made by any company, not just Frankland. To date, we have over $2
million in inventory, ready to ship to anywhere in the world.
