We got the news today that the new Dayco Race Belt, RPX, was the recipient of the PRI Global Media Award.  Congratulations to the Dayco team! Below is the official Press Release.  


Woodbridge, Ontario (December 13, 2018) – Dayco an exhibitor at the PRI trade show, was a proud recipient of the 2019 PRI Global Media Award for their RPX Race Series belt. One of the newest additions to the Dayco Racing line.

Dayco participated with an exclusive group of exhibitors in the 2018 PRI Featured Products Showcase. The RPX Race Series belt was selected by Canada’s own Inside Track Motorsports news journalist, Greg MacPherson based on the product’s international consumer appeal.

“I kept an eye out for products that would be of particular interest to Canadian racers. Our magazine features all types of racing, we’re always interested in products that are tested, developed and proven in racing machines, including snowmobiles. The Dayco RPX Belt was a natural for consideration, the fact that it is the official belt of the CSRA and is still easily accessible to the buying public was the clincher.” saidGreg MacPherson, Inside Track Motorsports journalist.  

The all new RPX Race Series Belt, engineered by Dayco features a specially blended RPX compound, making it the strongest aramid belt available in the market today. The advantages of racers using the RPX belt allows for quicker upshifts and downshifts for improved engine braking, a quicker throttle response, reduced belt slippage through RPM range and delivers more HP to the track.

Dayco is honoured to have received the 2019 PRI Global Media Award in recognition of our new RPX Race Series belt.”said Tyler Samagalski – Director of Canadian Aftermarket.
