Sid Waterman was one of Drag Racing's genuine pioneers, building his first (of several) To Fuel Dragsters in 1960. His passion was really the mechanical side of these high-powered machines, so the driving chores were soon relegated to Ronnie Goodsell, then later to Ronnie Hampshire. This gave Sid time to concentrate on building and tuning - experiences which proved to be of significant value as his business career began to unfold. He opened his first machine shop in 1967, and over the next few years, his shop turned out engines and components for numerous champions such as Don Garlits, Shirley Muldowney, Bob Glidden and a host of others. Sid ultimately developed his own brand of aluminum connecting rods, as well as his own line of superchargers for hard core racers. It was during his engine building years that Sid realized the tremendous need the racing world had for really high quality fuel pumps and fuel system components. In1979, Sid and his always supportive wife, Judy, sold the engine building portion of the business, moved back to his native northern California, and set up a new shop dedicated to the development and production of state-of-the-art fuel pumps and related fuel delivery system products.
