From the short tracks, drag strips, road courses, and even in the desert, Five Star has one driving passion: to help you WIN!

Five Star Race Car Bodies was founded by Fran Prestay and Carl Schultz in the late 70's. After a tough night of racing, they couldn't find a pair of Camaro fenders from the local scrap yards. Like most racers, they were not going to let this stop them from making the next race. They decided to make their own pair of sheet metal fenders which quickly caught the attention of the racing community. After recognizing the need and excitement for fabricated race car body panels, Fran and Carl seized the opportunity and the rest is history.

Today, Five Star is the most recognized brand of short track body components in the world; Five Star has been a driving force in the very popular ABC (Approved Body Configuration) program that is changing the face of Asphalt Short Track racing in North America today.
