Alston Racing to Host New 2-Day Dave Morgan Chassis Tuning Seminar

Alston Racing announced that they will be hosting a race car chassis seminar by renowned chassis tuner, Dave Morgan, March 3 & 4, in Lake Zurich, IL.

Morgan’s previous one-day seminars had a reputation for being over-packed with information, so much so that some racers felt it was too much to cover and process in a single day. As a result, Morgan has developed a new two-day seminar series for racers who want to receive more in-depth information at a better pace and one that allows for more discussion and interaction.


I’ve always felt that I left a lot out of my lecture,” said Morgan. “Yet there was really nothing I could do. It happened so many times… by the time we got done on Saturday, I could see that the attendees were maybe a little…or a lot overloaded before we even got to the final subject, rear suspensions.”

Morgan believes the new, two-day format will provide everyone with a better learning experience,” said Morgan. “We can cover many more details about the subjects I normally cover, while adding new material and allowing more time for discussion of examples and the challenges everyone faces in setting up their chassis.”

Morgan notes that the design of this seminar is not one where he simply added additional information to the end of the previous lesson plan. “As a whole, the new two-day seminar is much more comprehensive throughout. For example, in the past, there was never enough time to discuss subjects such burnouts, aerodynamics, front suspensions or hardware. What I really like about this plan is that we can save most of Sunday to discuss suspensions so people get a chance to rest before listening to their favorite subject,” added Morgan.

These seminars have been very popular with Midwestern drag racers,” said Mike Ruth, Product Manager for Alston Racing. “As in previous years, we are pleased to hosting Dave and providing the venue for his outstanding seminars and letting him share his knowledge with the racers attending. Dave is a very smart guy and not afraid to answer questions. I think it’s important for people to hear what he as to say because he can help them improve their car’s performance and at the end of the day, save them money by being more effective at setting up their cars when they do get them out to the track.”

Additional Speaker to Attend

For the Alston Racing hosted Morgan Seminar, attendees will also hear from John McCrory, Race Car Product Manager from Aurora Bearing. McCrory will be a part of the seminar and give a presentation on race car bearing selection. “This will be a ‘everything you ever wanted to know about bearings, but were afraid to ask’ part of the overall seminar,” said Ruth. “He will also hold a question & answer session for the attendees. John is very well known in the racing world and will no doubt bring additional value to the overall seminar.”

    Hey Mr. Dave, how are you doing? Maybe you remember me from Heidts seminar this year where I was re-tuned…I helped with the plotting on the Mustang. Just read your Nov. FSC column and I have to say it’s excellent writing. Yes indeed, the car will tell you what it likes and dislikes, you just have to understand the language. And the trusty wireties I check after each pass. Well we finished number 4 in points in PRO at 66 this season and I wanted to say it helped what I learned from you. Thanks! Take care Mr. Dave and Happy Holidays to you. Dave”nitrokid”
