We have found out why “Racing” became part of the Profile name. But where did “Profile” come from?
This excerpt is from an old press release:
“The company, Profile Racing, Inc. actually got its’ beginning back in 1968 when owner, Jim Alley acquired majority ownership of A & H Racing Engineering. A & H was a successful automotive speed shop in New Jersey that hand made custom racecars and dragsters. Shortly after the stock buyout, Alley wanted the company name to reflect more of the direction he was preparing to take his new business. It was while reading a dragster magazine that the title of a feature article caught his eye and his imagination. The title of the article was “Drag Race Profile”. Not long after Alley put the magazine down, A & H Engineering officially became ‘Profile Racing, Inc.'”
