American made with quality far superior to any other performance aftermarket company, Meziere Enterprises build their water pumps with pride right here in the USA. And that is why they are a perfect match to team with the IHRA in providing a water pump and components for this year’s Summit SuperSeries dragster.
House of Payne Performance, headed by leading man and veteran racer Mark Payne, has been an IHRA staple for years.

One of the first to get on board with the 2016 build, Payne’s contribution is another key component that makes this year’s Summit SuperSeries dragster a true prize.
