June 7, 2020 update on the storm damage to the BRP shop:
BRP's shop was significantly impacted by the Tornado that passed through Oconee County, South Carolina. The NWS has ruled the Tornado an EF-3 and it is the largest tornado that has ever hit our area. Unfortunately, the Bishop Racing Products shop was in the direct path.
June 7th Storm Update:
We have an exciting update for all of our customers! We have finally been able to begin limited production. We have been running production this week and the machines all have performed well. We are only able to run at about 70% production due to some power limitations. We expect to be at 100% production in about 5 weeks when the power is completely repaired.
We are opening online ordering today! We must still ask everyone to be patient for now on receiving orders. We anticipate 6-8 weeks for delivery at this time. It will really depend on the demand. We will fill all orders as first come first serve.
Thank you again for all the well wishes and prayers. The virus and the tornado are nothing we ever anticipated happening. For them both to happen at the same time has been sureal. We are very happy to be on this side of both at this point. We look forward to seeing our tires on your cars far into the future!
Please check back on the website for updates. We are working tirelessly to overcome this natural disaster.

ALL ABOUT BISHOP RACING PRODUCTS
BRP has been around since 1986, originating in Buena Park, California and moved to Springdale, Arkansas. Over the years, Todd Bishop continued to find better ways to make the best products through technology, constant testing, and good old-fashioned hard work.
BRP mixes our own rubber compounds, makes and glues all our tires by hand. CNC Machined molds make our tires true, and consistent like no other.
In 2019, the Standridge Brothers took ownership of the brand. The only noticeable change in BRP is their mailing address; now they operate out of Seneca, South Carolina. They continue the tradition of ensuring each product is perfect and hope to streamline your ordering process.
