Hughes Performance has been a family-owned and operated business since our humble beginnings in 1971. Brothers Jim Hughes and Jeff Hughes along with sister Jan Bleichroth have worked together in a labor of love for many years to build up what is now an internationally recognized brand and leading manufacturer in the high performance and racing automotive aftermarket. For the past 4 decades-plus Hughes Performance has sought to provide only the finest and highest quality products in the aftermarket torque converter and automatic transmission industry.
Jim Hughes has been a key player in the success of Hughes Performance, fully investing himself into marketing and campaigning his company over the years both on and off the race track. Jim is well known throughout the industry for being a leader in innovation, a forward thinker, and a man who is both passionate as well as driven in all that he does.
Always the innovator, Jim Hughes is now pursuing his passions through the development of his new company, Blue Bayou Motorsports, as well as taking over operations at the newly renamed Tucson Dragway (formerly known as Southwest International Raceway).
Owner/operators Jeff Hughes and Jan Bleichroth have assumed full ownership of Hughes Performance, and will continue to work hand-in-hand with Jim Hughes as an authorized distributor of Hughes Performance products through Blue Bayou Motorsports.
Hughes Motorsports will now fly under the Blue Bayou Motorsports flag. Renowned racer and Hughes veteran Kevin Kleineweber will continue to attend select drag racing events to represent Hughes Performance. Kevin is now available five days a week at Hughes Performance headquarters, and can be reached directly at 602-424-9892.
Hughes Performance will continue daily operations in offering the very best in high performance and racing torque converters and automatic transmissions. We are also very excited about refining our product line even further both through offering new and innovative products as well continuing to build upon and improve our existing product line. Hughes Performance has been and will continue to be a family-owned and operated company who strives to be the very best at what we do, offering outstanding products with the customer service and technical know-how to back it up.
