KRC aspires to actualize the best products to ensure your racing experience is top of the line. With over 39 years in the racing industry, we know a thing or two about making it to the finish line. Mel Kluhsman began his business venture back in 1984, after graduating from Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas. He knew he wanted to turn his passion into a life-long career and continue to build and develop parts to make racing more efficient and obtainable to all those who shared his passion.
Throughout the years KRC has designed, manufactured and produced hundreds of racing components. KRC also has 7 patents and 3 patents pending, that he has developed. This "can do" attitude has led to the success of other companies, as well. Such as, Kluhsman Machine, Inc. and Lighting Ammo, that are on the rise and share workspace alongside KRC.
For more than 35 years, KRC has also been proud to offer sponsorship's to racers all across the country. We also work closely with IMCA, Lucas Oil and NASCAR. Partnerships that continue to push us to maneuver through the evolving ways of racing, that in turn produce better products to meet standards and needs everyday.
