The Timken Company, manufacturer of Ultimax® belts, is proud to be the official sponsor of the 2016 NHRA Northeast Division Pro Stock Snowmobile Series….
The renewed partnership is a result of the continued success and growth of the series. Snowmobiles run a blistering 8-second quarter mile at speeds over 160 MPH in a “heads-up” drag race sanctioned within the NHRA Northeast Division.
The Timken Company added Carlisle® belts to its power transmission portfolio in September 2015. Timken will continue to market industrial belts under the Carlisle brand and powersports belts under the Ultimax brand. Timken engineers, manufactures and markets bearings, transmissions, gearboxes, belts, chain and related products.
Premium quality Ultimax Belts by Timken are proudly made in the USA. Ultimax belts are designed to provide optimum performance and longer belt life on the track or on the trail.
