Five Star Race Car Bodies was founded by Fran Prestay and Carl Schultz in 1979; after a tough night of racing, they couldn’t find a pair of Camaro fenders from the local scrap yards, like any racer this was not going to stop them from making the next race.

They decided to make their own pair of sheet metal fenders which quickly caught the attention of the racing community. After recognizing the need and excitement for fabricated race car body panels, Fran and Carl seized the opportunity and the rest is history.

Five Star Race Bodies designs and manufactures products for the following world class racing series: NASCAR, Grand-Am-Daytona Prototype, NHRA, IHRA, SCCA, CORR, WSORR, SCORE, Short Track Asphalt and Dirt, USAC and USAR Hooters Pro Cup.

In addition our manufacturing capabilities include CNC machining, and state of the art Thermo Forming by an experienced staff to the toughest quality standards in the industry.

Today Five Star is the most recognized brand of short track body components in the world; Five Star has been a driving force in the very popular ABC body program (Approved Body Configuration) that is changing the face of Asphalt Short Track racing in America today.
