PHOENIX — A Nebraska-based performance automotive parts company opened a new location in Tolleson on Monday.

The facility at 8701 West McDowell Road marks the second retail store in the country for Speedway Motors and also features a warehouse and distribution center.

Speedway Motors, founded in 1952,  is a manufacturer, retailer and distributor of automotive parts and racing products, according to a press release.

It offers more than 250,000 products for race, street, muscle and street rod vehicles.

“The new location cuts shipping times for our Southwest and West Coast customers, helping us fulfill our promise of fast delivery,” Clay Smith, president and owner of Speedway Motors, said in the release.

More than 400 employees work for Speedway Motors, according to the release, with Smith crediting the employees for the company’s growth.

“We are more than a speed shop or parts supplier,” Smith said. “Our technicians are racing on the weekends, building projects, hot rods, muscle cars — you name it. So, when a customer calls, they get specific, informed advice from someone who gets it.

“Generation after generation, we love helping car lovers make the most of their time under the hood and behind the wheel.”

The company will celebrate the grand opening with giveaways through Friday, along with a contest to be on the cover of one of the company’s catalogs, according to the release.
