A lot of things have changed since we opened our doors in 1979. However,
one thing has stayed the same--Watson and Ruppel Performance's, dedication to qualify built engines and machine work.
In a business where performance and dependability count, you can count on Watson Ruppel Performance.
W.R.P. is now Southeastern Ohio's most complete automotive machine shop. Being versatile is what has helped us grow over the
years. But, being versatile and winning in every form of racing has made our business a success.
We take personal pride in every engine we build, whether it is for drag racing, circle track,
pulling trucks, or street.
Our engines have given drag racers hundreds of round wins at tracks
all over the country. We race our own "Dr. Watson" 69 Camaro, and over the years we have won a national event, set several
national records; and been in the top 10 in the N.H.R.A. point chase several times.
Our circle track engines have hundreds of feature wins, several track championships, and
set track records all over Ohio and West Virginia.
Our pulling truck and tractor customers have enjoyed winning in every class on a local
and national level. Some of our engines have dominated their classes.
