TSI Harley-Davidson Renews Title Sponsorship Of Memorial Day Weekend Whelen Modified Tour Event At Stafford Speedway

(Stafford Springs, CT)—Stafford Motor Speedway has announced that for the seventh consecutive season, the track’s Memorial Day Weekend NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour event will be sponsored by TSI Harley-Davidson, the oldest Harley-Davidson dealer in the state of Connecticut.  The 24th Annual TSI Harley-Davidson 125 will mark the 10th consecutive season that TSI Harley-Davidson has been a race title sponsor at Stafford and the race will be held on Friday, May 23.
TSI first partnered with Stafford Motor Speedway as a race sponsor in 2005 when they sponsored a NASCAR K & N Pro Series East event.  TSI sponsored an East Series race from 2005-2007 and then transferred that sponsorship to the Memorial Day Weekend Whelen Modified Tour beginning in 2008.  TSI Harley-Davidson has been the presenting sponsor of that race each year since.
“We’re looking forward to another great year at Stafford,” said Harry Levesque, Owner of TSI.  “Stafford Speedway has been and continues to be a great place for us to be able to reach out to our target audience and it has been a great place for us to be able to showcase our line of Harley-Davidson motorcycles.  Last year we were able to debut our jumpstart, which allows riders to get on a bike and actually give it some throttle and go through the gears.  A lot of Stafford race fans are also Harley-Davidson fans, and we have a lot of fun being able to interact with the fans on race night.”
TSI is a full line Harley-Davidson dealer offering new and pre-owned motorcycles, full service parts department, and genuine Harley-Davidson clothing and apparel.  TSI’s service department is capable of repairing or restoring both the old and the new.  Their service department also offers full dyno tuning services and they are the only Harley-Davidson dealer in Connecticut that can dyno tune trikes.  TSI Harley-Davidson is also the only dealer in Connecticut that offers Riders Edge new rider training.  Because of their Riders Edge program, TSI will be the first Connecticut dealer to have the new Harley-Davidson Street motorcycle on display.
TSI Harley-Davidson has been in operation since 1972, making it the oldest Harley-Davidson dealer in Connecticut.  TSI is located at 398 Somers Road in Ellington and they can be reached by phone at 860-875-6663.  TSI is also online at www.tsiharleydavidsion.com, where you can see the products and services that TSI Harley-Davidson has to offer.  At TSI, it’s not about the destination; it’s all about the ride.
The TSI Harley-Davidson 125 continually offers some of the most exciting racing seen on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.  Last year’s TSI Harley-Davidson 125 saw eventual Whelen Modified Tour champion Ryan Preece overcome an opening lap spin and drive his way back through the entire field to be the first driver to take the checkered flag.  After coming to pit road for new tires and an adjustment, Preece sliced his way back through traffic and was able to get around Ronnie Silk to take the lead on lap-107.  Preece led the final 19 laps to pick up his first of three consecutive wins during the 2013 season and set him on his path to the 2013 NWMT Championship.  Along with Preece, Whelen Modified Tour champions Doug Coby, Ted Christopher, Tony Hirschman, Donny Lia, Bobby Santos, III, Ronnie Silk, and Mike Stefanik have all tasted the fruits of victory in the TSI Harley-Davidson 125.
