Bryan Robinson Transitions to Technical Consultant for BTE

Bryan Robinson Transitions to Technical Consultant for BTE

When it is time for one of our team members to move to new opportunities, we wish them greater success but we will also miss them, and that’s especially true for salesman Bryan Robinson, who’s been with us since January 2004. After more than a decade helping customers create truly fast racing machines, Bryan’s trading in his sales and racing specialist title for a well-deserved new moniker: outside Racing and Technical Consultant. In honor of this new change and his many years of service to BTE and our customers, we knew it was necessary to give Bryan his own post.

Before he started at BTE, Bryan was a prolific young race driver. His father was a customer and friend of the company for many years, and Bryan bonded with our President Brandon Barrentine on a trip to California together for the final race of his 2003 NHRA Super Gas world championship season. (He and Brandon also competed locally in bracket racing, where Brandon was 0-7 against Bryan when they lined up!)
 
Bryan was a prolific young race driver even before he started at BTE. Bryan has raced NHRA Super Gas, Super Comp, Stock, and Top Dragster in addition to two decades of bracket racing.
 
Over the years, Bryan has raced NHRA Super Gas, Super Comp, Stock, and Top Dragster in addition to two decades of bracket racing. He remains one of the top minds in sportsman racing in the world, and has used his knowledge and skills to help many customers win their own championships over the years. In addition to his 2003 national championship, he's won a huge list of "big money" bracket races, winning some purses as high as $50,000. Bryan designed and planned configuration of our 18-wheeler that we toured across the country from 2004-2006, building product displays, organizing schedules, and attending the events in competition and as a representative of BTE.
 
Bryan was instrumental in developing BTE’s wide catalog of torque converter configurations, and more importantly, developing our close relationship with the best drag racers in the world.
 
He helped us stay steady through the recession, and built relationships with some of our most important customers. We also commend him for making his daily commute from Iuka, MS to BTE each day for 14 years (~90 miles each way). That comes out to about 380 DAYS of driving!
 
Bryan was instrumental in developing BTE’s wide catalog of torque converter configurations, and more importantly, developing our close relationship with the best drag racers in the world. His reputation for prescribing the correct torque converter is among the best in the entire industry.
 
Most importantly, Bryan was a force of consistency and reliability in our daily lives. His punctuality, professionalism, and kindness set the standard for what BTE is known for today. Bryan embodies our maxim, “Built by racers in Mississippi.” He represented the character of BTE at racetracks, trade shows, and over the phone for the entirety of his 14 years with us.
 
 
We’re thrilled to see how Bryan will thrive in his new career in the RV business and his continued connection to BTE as our outside Racing and Technical Consultant.
 
Thank you, Bryan!
