DIRTcar Shock Absorber Decal Program Builds Momentum

Weedsport, NYNovember 30, 2009 – By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing Northeast PR Director

In preparation for the start of the upcoming DIRTcar Racing season in the Northeast Sportsman and Pro Stock teams continue ongoing preparations for the 2010 season. In the midst of those is preparing for DIRTcar’s new Shock Absorber decal program.

As a part of the program several manufacturer’s have submitted shock absorbers for participation, including AFCO; Genesis; Bilstein and Pro Shock

Whether purchased new or using inventory from previous seasons, every shock must still be correctly identified and color-coded for proper clearance on the DIRTcar Racing circuit in 2010.

To further implement this rule book revision, Bilstein Shocks serviced shock absorbers eligible for competition next season at the recent National Parts Peddler Trade Show in Syracuse. Following the conclusion of the show, Bilstein in concert with it’s dealer network has outlined outlets taking part in the “DIRTcar” approved shock absorber decal program.

Due to the high volume of shocks inspected at the recent National Parts Peddler Trade Show at the NYS Fairgrounds in Syracuse, teams still in need of the appropriate decals may contact one of the following locales — with each maintaining the necessary dyno equipment to test on-site old shock absorbers and determine their legality.
