Kevin Bolland is a 30-year veteran in dirt-racing. He drives the Big Block Dirt Modified #‘777’ car in the Super DIRT Car and BRP Modified Series events in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York and Charlotte, NC. And he’s winning – a lot.
PTC’s Creo, in conjunction with reselling partner Boundary Systems, sponsor Kevin Bolland and Bol-Tech Motorsports.
Of all the racecars that Creo has a hand in, dirt track racing is the single most common form of auto racing in the United States (it’s popular in Australia and Canada too). Local and regional racetracks throughout the nation number in the hundreds – maybe even as high as 1500.
Currently, Boundary Systems uses Creo software to create working models of Bolland’s car. Design, analysis, and simulation help optimize the car’s racing performance.
Ian Kimbrell, Founder and President of Boundary Systems, says, “Our team was very excited the first time we saw the car running inside the software and the folks at Bol-Tech have been a great team to work with.”
The 2012 racing year has only been open a couple of months, and the 52-year-old dirt racing champ has carved his twentieth win at Sharon Speedway (near Hartford, Ohio). On May 19, Kevin set the New Track Record at Sharon Speedway with a time of 15.919 seconds. In the same heat race, he broke his own record twice. He also has a victory at Lernerville Speedway (Sarver, Pennsylvania) this season. Sounds like a “Go Kevin!” is in order?
In talking about his car’s performance at Sharon Speedway, Kevin said, “The car was awesome up top. I’m thankful to be here. I couldn’t do it without Boundary, Creo, all my sponsors and Bolland Machine for the good horsepower.”
We agree – it’s fun being part of a winning team. Check out their video below:
