TOLEDO OH (1-15-03) ARCA has formally announced the appointment of Billy Edwards to head up its Performance Certification Department.

ARCA's expertise with automobiles in racing situations is well established over the company's 50 years of sanctioning professional motorsports events. Fastest laps, pole positions, track records, laps led, technical inspections and the depth of technological proficiency needed to recognize and record such data is an everyday occurrence. ARCA has parlayed this experience and capability into the formal creation of a performance certification department, which is now available to automotive manufacturers. From endurance record attempts to 0-60 mph times, ARCA has the technological equipment and knowledgeable staff to certify results that can then be used internally or in the advertising marketplace.

The department is headed by Edwards, who is experienced as a champion racecar driver, test driver and racing school coordinator/chief instructor. Edwards also holds several national and international driving records. Data acquisition and analysis is provided by Kinetic Racing Technologies of Holly, Michigan with in-car testing the responsibility of Full Lock Motorsports of Laurens, South Carolina.

To date, ARCA has administrated certification projects for SAAB Cars USA, Pontiac Motor Division and several for Porsche Cars North America.
