Rivera and Boninfante’s namesake Rob Boninfante have similar backgrounds in the industry.
Per ProTorque, “The decision was certainly an easy one to make for ProTorque’s Rivera, as he knew it was in the best interest of the company and of its racers to join forces with Boninfante to provide increased performance and technology.
Boninfante Friction has been manufacturing friction clutches for the motorsports market since 1988, and has won every NHRA pro class championship since 1998.
“Boninfante handles more horsepower than anyone else, and it is a true honor to be working with a company of this caliber,” said Rivera. “The team at Boninfante is absolutely brilliant an we’re excited to start rolling. Get ready for an all new level of performance with ProTorque and expect to see many new products from this collaboration that will be born from Top Fuel technology. This is going to be epic!”
