We know everyone loves hearing about their favorite professional athlete or racer, but there are a thousand stories out there that no one gets to hear about. It could be a hobby racer going fast and setting a personal best performance at their local drag strip or track day, or maybe it is a budding customizer building up their personal ride in their garage and doing some innovative things. It could even be an avid rider on two wheels who wants to share their enthusiasm for a particular project or charity in their community.
Brock’s Performance wants to use the power of social media to let you know about people you might not otherwise hear about. We would like to share your stories, accomplishments and photos with others. It could be any local racer, customizer or enthusiast who is simply going out and doing what they love to do, using Brock’s Performance products.
We ask you to stick to these simple rules: the story must revolve around motorcycling, it cannot be commercial in nature, and must in some way involve Brock’s Performance exhaust systems and other performance items.
