Bristol Dragway officials today announced Hays Machine Works as a sponsor for the inaugural Thunder Valley Dragbike Shootout

Hays Machine Works, based in Matthews, N.C., manufactures high performance motorcycle parts, notably convertible clutches. The company always supports racers with innovative products and promotions, and the new partnership with the Thunder Valley Dragbike Shootout is no different.

Tim Hays, owner of Hays Machine Works, will provide product vouchers worth $1,500 to the winners in Saturday’s Street ET class and Sunday’s Pro Street division. With strong purse payouts, racers in these categories now have extra incentive to leave Thunder Valley as a winner.

Hays sees great potential in the new event and is excited to partner with Bristol Dragway on the inaugural event.

“Hays Machine Works would like to use this opportunity to give back to the racers and the people who have stood behind us and our products over the years.  We will continue to provide our customers with the new and innovative products that you have all grown accustomed to now well into the future, “said owner Tim Hays.

Dragway officials look to make additional sponsorship announcements for the Thunder Valley Dragbike Shootout in the coming weeks.
