BILSTEIN Names Aaron Morey New Head of Motorsports
Poway, California, Feb 27, 2018 – Performance suspension companyBILSTEIN has named Aaron Morey its new Head of Motorsports for the U.S.
As Head of Motorsports, Morey will implement strategies across the various motorsports segments to increase market share growth. He will lead the motorsports team as BILSTEIN continues to develop and release the latest in shock technology.

“Aaron’s experience in motorsports leadership is impressive,” said Steven Beaty, President of Aftermarket and Motorsports, thyssenkrupp BILSTEIN of America. “With a proven record creating and implementing motorsports sales strategies, Aaron is a valuable addition to BILSTEIN’s motorsports team.”
A Michigan native, Morey lived in Texas and Tennessee before attending high school and college in Columbus, Ohio. A motorhead from an early age, Morey started slot car racing at age 4, and by the time he was 7 he was racing 1/18-scaled gas cars across the Midwest.
At 11 he was competing in the World Karting Association, and at 13 he started racing BMX bikes, winning more than 160 events over three years and climbing to second in the U.S. rankings.
At 18 he started racing an UMP Dirt Modified car on local circle tracks, and over the next 17 years competed in everything from the World of Outlaws Late Model Series, sprint cars and the USMTS Modified Tour.
“What I enjoy most about my career is the competition,” Morey said. “I love winning and hate finishing second. Working in the motorsports industry, you’re always looking for the wins every weekend and using those wins to grow sales.”
