Our Story

Lou Fegers began his racing career in 1948. His nickname, “Lightin’ Lou,” was given to him because of his ability to run at the front of the pack. With his racing background, it was inevitable that he begin his own race parts business. In 1965, he began Lou Fegers Racing Equipment (LFRE) Inc. It has since grown into a successful business and one of the leading suppliers of speed and safety equipment in the country. In 1995, Lou sold the business to his son, Mike, who had been general manager of overall operations for several years previous. Other than the change in ownership, things at LFRE have remained much the same.

Our present location in Delano, Minnesota provides a large showroom as well as our full service chassis shop. The main goal of LFRE is to supply quality parts to the racing enthusiast and to provide them with quality service in our chassis shop. We have always tried to add the latest and newest parts to our ever-increasing line of racing products. Our own house cars have been the testing grounds for new products in our attempt to keep up with the ever-changing racing industry. This enhances our ability to keep our customers informed of new things to try.

Quality is one of the key words when dealing with LFRE. We sell quality parts. Our vast inventory allows us to ship out 99% or our orders the same day we receive the order. We strive to make the customer happy. TECHNICAL ADVICE is available on chassis setup, shock and spring information, and much more. We have been serving racers in the upper Midwest for over 50 years.  We look forward to serving you in the very near future!
