Jay Upton and team are headed back to Sydney Dragway for this weekend’s East Coast Thunder.

With an exciting new look and three new corporate partners, it is game-on!

After an extended break from championship racing, Jay and the ‘big white bike’ have been testing at their home track with the intent of making the most powerful bike in Australia more reliable. It has always been fast, but a renewed focus on consistency and the championship chase is the new aim for the team.

400 Thunder kicked off the new championship with ‘Nitro Up North’ in Darwin in July and at his first race back, Upton won the event and took every point on offer – and now leads the points over the reigning Champion Chris Matheson.

This weekend, the team are  proud to welcome three new racing partners to the team. Upton owns and operates Wear Parts WA, and distributes the WPA range of Ground Engaging Tools (for construction and mining machines) and the Gulf Western Oils range of oils, greases and other associated products for the Transport, Construction, Mining and Automotive Performance markets.

Upton commented “it’s great to be able to sell the products we endorse and to endorse the products we sell everyday”  “The Gulf Western Comp R50 that we use in the bike has made a fantastic improvement to our reliability”. You too can have the same oil for your high performance car, or the latest OEM approved extended oil change Top Dog Indestructible for your big rigs”.

The Top Fuel B Double is proudly supported by Specialised Equipment Xpress, a growing family owned trucking business out of Newcastle NSW.  Managing Director Grant Mundy is a huge supporter of the team and his enthusiasm is infectious. Upton enthused “having Grant and the Specialised Equipment Xpress team on board is fantastic, Grant is a hard worker,  pushing us to excel, and allowing me to concentrate more on going fast!”
