Everyone at Robert Yates Racing Engines would like to send our thoughts and prayers to the Partridge family, his wife Connie, the every crew members on the #6 team as we mourn the loss of Eddie Partridge.



Eddie Partridge was the epitome of a true racer. Not only did he build successful race teams but he owned Riverhead Raceway and made a huge impact in NASCAR racing. Racing was in his blood and he passed away a winner shortly after taking the checkered flag with Ryan Preece at Richmond Raceway.

As some weekly tracks are winding down their season, here’s a couple of racers that have had outstanding seasons utilizing the DC18 version of the CT525 from RYRE. Wissota late model racer Derek Vesel has clinched the Hibbing Raceway Late Model Championship with 3 feature wins and 7 top 3 finishes out of 11 races at the speedway.
The second racer Todd Sherman, achieved his 50th career feature win this season with the DC18 version under the hood of his Sherman Enterprises built DIRTcar / UMP Modified. Todd collected 4 feature wins along with the prestigious Limaland Motorsports Park DIRTcar / UMP modified track championship making for the second straight track championship for the DC18 version CT525.
Congratulations to both these outstanding racers and their teams on winning both 2021 Championships !! πŸ†πŸ†

ROBERT YATES RACING ENGINES HIRES DON BLACKSHEAR AS LEAD DEVELOPER FOR

THE NEW RY525 ENGINE PROGRAM



April 2, 2021 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



(Mooresville, NC) … Robert Yates Racing Engines, exclusive supplier of the NASCAR Spec Engine, is pleased to announce that Don Blackshear has been appointed as Lead Developer for the new RY525 Engine Program.



Don is a familiar name because of his successful drag racing career. He first came to national notoriety as a 17-year-old Champion in the NHRA Super Comp class in 1987. He moved onto racing alcohol dragsters and enjoyed a solid reputation as a winning driver. It was only a matter of time before he started his own business, Blackshear Racing Engines, provided competitive engines for every type of racing class. He is highly respected in the motorsports industry from his Hall of Famer background in drag racing, to building open engines for top racers located in Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio. Also, Don worked with GM Performance engineering to develop the new forged piston CT525 that will be utilized in the new RY525 program.



Blackshear has over 40 years of designing, machining, and assembling championship and race winning engine combinations. "Don's experience and creativity combined with his ability to design and troubleshoot any issue that develops is invaluable as well as maintaining vital relationships” conveyed Robert Yates Racing Engines General Manager, David Lewis.



β€œDon has been able to provide a sealed, cost-containment engine that has durability and performance to compete with the open-built engines in those applications. Our team agrees that all racers really want is to be competitive. When you start limiting these engines into a cost-containment type of program we are giving them an opportunity to be competitive with a controlled engine cost and Robert would be proud” stated Robert Yates Racing Engines Owner, Carolyn Yates.



There are no modifications allowed to the engine. The engine is sealed with the engine sealing program. This is a unique program to our company. Each seal is QR coded so you can scan with a smartphone. It takes you to our database, enter the engine serial number and a build number given to the specific engine, and it uploads the documentation on that engine along with photo documentation of every seal as installed by Robert Yates Racing Engines.



The circle track engine packages come with the QR program. By visual identification, the customer is aware that the seal has not been tampered with after shipping. Don controlled the sealing program for several different series that have rebuilder programs, therefore, the engine builder is held accountable for his work.



The RY525 engine uses an LS3 engine platform as the base for this Spec Engine. The LS3 was first introduced in the 2008 Corvette. The CT525 looks like a race engine and if the results are any indication, it acts like a race engine. It is very difficult to argue with a competitive engine that costs substantially less than a competitive open engine as there is a place in the racing world for both. The RY525 program will focus on providing competitive cost containment engines utilized in Sprint Cars, Late Models, Modified and Road Race applications.





Don Blackshear can be reached at 724-977-7424 or by e-mail at [email protected].
