Ty-Drive, a leading manufacturer of lockup and non-lockup torque converter drive units, is jumping on board with the Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series (MWDRS) presented by J&A Service as an official series sponsor, MWDRS officials announced today.
“It’s exciting to welcome Ty-Drive as a series sponsor,” said Keith Haney, founder and owner, MWDRS. “They’re a ‘for racers, by racers’ company just like we’re a ‘for racers, by racers’ series. Everything we get in terms of sponsor support goes back into making the series better for the racers, our marketing partners, and our track partners. We’re proud that Ty-Drive sees value in what we’re doing and wanted to get involved.”
Doorslammer racing veteran Todd Tutterow and his son, Ty, have worked for several years to develop the Ty-Drive units that are now used by race winners, champions, and record holders in numerous different series, including the Mid-West Drag Racing Series.
Ty-Drive units are used by several MWDRS Stroud Safety Pro Mod drivers, including Haney, Jon Stouffer (pictured), and Ronnie Hobbs. Within MWDRS and beyond, Ty-Drive products are utilized by high-level racers running a variety of different power adders and engine combinations, including nitrous, turbochargers, roots blowers, screw blowers, and centrifugal superchargers.
“It’s great to see manufacturers giving back to the racers who run their products,” Haney said. “I run a Ty-Drive in my car, and I know a handful of our other Pro Mod competitors do too. Hopefully with this new partnership, other racers will look into Ty-Drive products as well.”
The 2022 Summit Racing Equipment Mid-West Drag Racing Series presented by J&A Service season will kick off at the Xtreme Texas Nationals, March 17-19 at Xtreme Raceway Park in Ferris, Texas.
