Our brand stands for automotive excellence, safety and innovation, and our spark plugs, in particular, are widely used by professional racing teams on every circuit around the globe.

In addition, spark plugs, alternators, radiators and engine management systems are utilized by professional drivers and pit crews of all classes.

“We build our products to these same rigorous standards regardless of who’s behind the wheel,” said Fidance. “That’s another reason we’re proud to sponsor the upcoming NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. Millions of DENSO brand-loyal fans around the world enjoy this series, and supporting it is another great way to show our commitment to them.”
