... Oh, you're still reading. That wasn't enough? Okay, let's fire it up.
Back in 1997 there was a company called Beckett Enterprises. They primarily did big rig alignments, and it was run and founded by David Beckett and his father Joe. They used special tools invented by Joe's Brother. It was a family run business that did quality work and was well known in it's field.
David, however, had a passion for performance. A need to push a vehicle to it's limits and subsequently allow the driver to find their own. He worked on race teams, built his own cars, and eventually started his own business. Back at Beckett Enterprises they would sign everything with a short abbreviation, "B. ENT.", paying homage to his origins, the new company was called BENT.
One of the first major milestones for Bent was a 10" over long travel kit that could be bolted on to Polaris RZRs. Practical engineering and application was the cornerstone of Bent, and they hold those ideals still today. Anything that interested them was brought into the shop; 800hp twin turbo Sandrails, Jeep rock crawlers next to Nissan GTRs, and outside would be parked a classic 64' Stingray. All in the interest of working on things that got them excited.
Bent holds true to a belief that you should love what you do and they keep that passion going by working with people that hold the same enthusiasm. Whether you own a race team or you've had the same project for years. Bent Motorsports knows everyone is here for the same reason.
