Dayco Goes Full Throttle in 2022 with More Than 20 Racing Sponsorship

Dayco has announced a comprehensive North American racing program for 2022 that will provide almost 20 teams and drivers with access to Dayco’s full line of racing products and technical expertise. With a longstanding history of racing involvement, Dayco’s technical team is focused on providing a range of products engineered to help extreme sports enthusiasts perform at their peak. 

In drag racing, Dayco continues its partnership with Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) for the 4thseason and serves as the sole supplier of Dayco’s 11mm blower belts at the track. Dayco has also invested in five up-and-coming teams racing in various circuits – from the PDRA and NMCA circuits to small tire racing, factory stock and pro-mod. Team sponsorships include Gillig Motorsports,Watson Racing, Chris Duncan Race Cars, Angel Performance and Seher Shultetus Racing. Between March and October, several of these drivers will put Dayco’s all-new 8mm blower belt, CVT belts and newly launched supercharger belts through the paces.  

Dayco’s tech team is honed in on showcasing the R&D and performance capabilities of Dayco products in intense driving conditions on the drift circuit. Sponsorships include Chad Anderson Motorsports, Mike Steele of Steele Brothers Racing,  husband and wife team Mike and Ashley Messineo and Scherzer Racing. All drivers will be racing in vehicles outfitted with Dayco parts and logos during the April-November season.  

In the world of powersports and off-road racing, Dayco’s sponsored drivers are wrapping up their snowcross and ice oval racing seasons in early April. This small engine market is growing in popularity and with Dayco’s full line of CVT belts that can handle extreme racing, Dayco continued its support of the Canadian Snowcross Racing Association and served as lead sponsor of February’s 1-500 race. Not only is Dayco the Official Belt of CSRA, but also backs winning teams and motorsports organizations across both snowcross and ice oval racing, including Bailey Motorsports, MPH Racing, Beach Racing, Sterne Racing, Postula Motorsports, She Shreds Mountains, Steve St. Onge and Cameron Wachtler.
