Dayco, a leading engine products and drive systems specialist for the automotive and aftermarket industries, has teamed with the Canadian Snowcross Racing Association (CSRA) for the 2021 race season that kicked off this month in Lindsay, Ontario. CSRA events feature competition classes for snowmobiles, snow bikes and UTV off-road vehicles. Continuing its support of the organization, Dayco is a key sponsor and the official belt for the series, in addition to backing McCoy’s Racing, Bailey Motorsports and Cameron Wachtler.
Dayco has a longstanding history in snowmobile and UTV racing. The company’s racing belt line is specifically engineered to provide maximum performance under the most extreme racing conditions. Dayco racing belts are made of a specially blended polymer compound, which, according to the company, makes it one of the strongest aramid belts available in the market today. It features:
- Precisely pre-formed cogs: Enhanced flexibility and cooler running extend belt life;
- High twist aramid cord: Provides increased strength under tension; and
- Specialized polymer blended compound: Allows for quicker upshifts and downshifts and increased engine speed.
“Bailey has one of the most successful teams in the CSRA circuit with multiple championships throughout various classes in the sport. And for more than 10 years, we have used Dayco belts for our snowcross racing efforts,” said Stuart Hunt, Bailey Motorsports team owner. “We have come to depend on the performance and reliability of Dayco belts to get the best out of our equipment. The success of our race program depends on relationships like the one we have with Dayco so we are very fortunate to have been able to align ourselves with such a great company.”
Dayco has a dedicated team of engineers who help bring to market racing-specific technology for everything from snowmobiles and off-road vehicles to cars used in drifting and drag racing. Dayco’s work in racing enables its engineering team to spot new trends, test new product innovations and continue building the highest quality products.
