Tim McCreadie Named Newest BILSTEIN Dirt Track Driver
Mooresville, NC – BILSTEIN Motorsports is pleased to announce the addition of its newest dirt track driver, Tim McCreadie. BILSTEIN first revealed McCreadie as the latest driver to join their team at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) trade show in Indianapolis.
“We are thrilled to welcome Tim to our impressive lineup of racers in dirt track, off road and street performance.” said Aaron Morey, head of motorsports at BILSTEIN. “Just like our shocks, Tim has a strong track record of success, which makes this a great match.”
McCreadie, who has been racing the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series full-time since 2016, recently became the first driver from New York state to win the World 100.
“We are honored to join Team BILSTEIN and partner with a company that continues to research and develop shocks designed to create performance gains on the track,” McCreadie said. “BILSTEIN has always been the company to watch for the most innovative new shock technology in circle track racing, and with their support, we look forward to a very successful 2019 season.”
BILSTIEN’s new EM46 Series Shock is especially suited to meet the demands of late model dirt drivers. The innovative shock combines elements of both spring rate and shock damping into one product.
The EM46 is a BILSTEIN 46mm steel shock body utilizing a 22mm diameter rod, shock oil, and a nitrogen gas charge. The purpose is to generate spring rate in order to eliminate the spring from the corner of the car. No spring means no spring oscillation, translating into maximum grip for the tire on that corner of the car.
“The full scope of applications of this type spring/shock product has not yet been explored,” Morey said. “To date we have seen performance gains using this product on the left rear of dirt late models, right rear of late models on asphalt and dirt, right front on asphalt late models, and on the “lift bar” on dirt late models.”
Morey adds that the advantage of the EM46 over other “air shock” type products on the market is extreme durability, consistency, and tunability.
For more than 60 years, BILSTEIN has been recognized for its top-quality, high-performance damping technology. Their shocks revolutionized the automobile industry and have played a crucial role in driving comfort, performance and safety for generations. Today, the world’s leading automobile brands trust BILSTEIN for a reason: Their technologies and quality set the highest standards.
