Cloyes To Feature Award-Winning Timing System Products at PRI 2019

The company’s newly launched Variable Valve Timing Chain Kits are included in this year’s Featured Product Showcase

FORT SMITH, Ark., December 3, 2019 – Cloyes, the North American leader and global designer, developer, manufacturer, and distributor of timing drive systems and engine components for original equipment manufacturers and the automotive aftermarket, has continued its aggressive product expansion initiatives in 2019, including the launch of variable valve timing chain kits, an expanded line of timing belt kits, and timing chain water pump kits.

These products, along with Cloyes’ full line of timing drive system products, will be on display during the Performance Racing Industry’s (PRI) annual trade show, December 12-14, 2019 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Ind.

“Cloyes is proud to have a long history of serving the automotive industry with leading timing drive systems and products for nearly 100 years,” said Brian Wheeler, vice president of business development and marketing for Cloyes. “At PRI 2019, the Cloyes team, along with its nearly 50 years of racing heritage, will feature our custom timing sets and race products that are designed with advanced technologies and engineered with unmatched quality for optimum racing performance.”

The Cloyes name is well known and respected in the high-performance world. Cloyes developed and patented the very first True® Roller timing set in 1970. This innovative product, as well as other patented products such as the Hex-a-Just® True® Roller Speed Set, the Quick Button™ Two-Piece Timing Cover, and Z-Series Racing Chain, revolutionized the high-performance timing field.

Every Cloyes Premium Race set is hand-matched at the Cloyes facility by trained technicians. This process starts with a detailed component fitment and critical feature analysis. Each set is then measured on a pneumatic matching fixture, allowing rotation of the timing set under a predetermined load to both qualify center distance and control runout. It is this attention to detail that sets Cloyes apart from all competitors.

The Performance Racing Industry Trade Show annually attracts thousands of members of the racing industry from all 50 states and 70 countries. With over 1,100 companies exhibiting in 750,000 gross square feet of new race products, services, machinery, simulation and testing technologies, and trailer exhibits, it is the world’s largest gathering of motorsports professionals. The three-day trade show provides a professional business atmosphere where racing retailers, race engine builders, race car fabricators, race engineers and WDs can conduct business face to face with suppliers, preview the next year’s hottest new racing products, make buying decisions, and secure new lines in inventory for the start of the next racing season.
