Phil Allison has always been drawn to racing: first to motocross and later to roadracing. It became clear that as fast as Phil was, he was better at making other riders go even faster. His interest and ability amplified while working as Steve Hewitt’s crew chief and winning many Open Superbike and Formula 40 titles at Willow Springs. His attention turned from club racing to the AMA Superbike Championship when an opportunity opened to build the Roadracing World Project R1 Superbike with rider Jeremy Toye- the season went well with multiple top ten finishes. Another year with Toye and RoadracingWorld on a Honda CBR1000 led to a job offer from Erion Honda, a championship winning factory satellite team. Allison decided that he preferred the challenge and satisfaction of building a championship winning team from the ground up. In 2008, his decision resulted in the first privateer team to reach an AMA Pro Racing podium with no manufacture support in roughly 20 years. The success continued in 2009 with multiple podiums, 4 wins and the AMA Supersport East Division Championship. In addition to his thriving race teams and performance shop, Phil has built motors with the highest trap speed in every AMA Pro Racing class. In 2010, Allison built the motors for multiple Supersport race winner, Huntley Nash, current AMA Supersport West Champion, Joey Pascarella and AMA Superbike rider, Chris Peris, whose BMW S1000RR had the highest trap speed at the AMA event at Laguna Seca and New Jersey Motorsports Park.
Altogether, Phil has more than 15 years of elbows deep experience running a performance shop, racing at the club and AMA Pro Racing level and working with both privateer and factory teams.
