Whelen Engineering and Motorsports go together as well as oil and engines. For over 25 years Whelen has supported NASCAR and its grass roots racing series. Recently Whelen has taken to the sky as well and gotten into Aviation Racing and Acrobatics. Paired up with NASCAR to have four sponsorships, Action Express Racing and Mike Goulian Aerobatics, you can find Whelen on most tracks or runways.
