(Sunnen: St. Louis) -- Hendrick Motorsports has named Sunnen Products Co. its official honing equipment partner as it pursues its record-extending 15th NASCAR Cup Series championship. The partnership puts the new Sunnen SV series honing machine in the Hendrick engine operation alongside numerous other Sunnen honing and engine-building machines.

The SV series is the next generation of Sunnen’s Cylinder King line of honing machines, offering a variety of features ideal for automotive performance and rebuilding shops. Hendrick fields four full-time Chevrolet teams in the elite NASCAR Cup Series with drivers Kyle Larson, Chase Elliott, William Byron, and Alex Bowman.

According to Hendrick, Sunnen’s state-of-the-art technology will allow it to produce the highest quality and most consistent cylinder bores in its history. The Sunnen partnership will help improve performance on the track and deliver the most consistent engine package possible to Hendrick’s teams and external customers.
