Feature Interview: Bill Tichenor, Holley

For our second show of the season we asked Bill Tichenor from Holley to come on the show. He started his career at Holley after driving by their building every day as a college student……hoping to one day run a “super cool double-pumper carb” on his AMX. Little did he know that would lead to a marketing career with one of the coolest brands in the industry. Fast forward to today and Bill has been the marketing man at Holley forever it seems. He’s seen the company change, add brands, and grow. As Bill shared, developing new products gets people excited but it only matters if people are out playing with their own cars and having fun first.

You’ll find that Holley products are in grassroots motorsports and street cars of course, but also in the big leagues of NASCAR and the NHRA. The Holley fuel injection ECU is the go-to unit of choice for the Ring Brothers in their custom car builds too. Holley is also the GTL Class sponsor in OSUSC, and Racepak (which is a Holley Brand) is series Telemetry sponsor.

We hope you’ll enjoy this one. Bill is as funny as he is smart and he loves this stuff as much as we do!

-Rob & Jimi
