BRADENTON T&DElma,NY – When your making close to 3000 horsepower and turning over 10,000 rpm’s, the valve train of an engine becomes very important to a team like Mike Janis Racing and his 2014 NHRA Pro Modified Camaro. For this very reason, Mike Janis and his team choose nothing but the best: and the best to them is T&D Machine Products Rocker Arms. Mike Janis Racing is very pleased to announce that T&D Rocker Arms has been added to their list of partners for the 2014 racing season.

“When your in this engine building business you are looking for every bit of horsepower and reliability you can squeeze out of a part,” said Mike Janis, Owner/Driver at MJR. “We have been using the T&D Hemi Rocker Arm set-up since 2006 and haven’t looked back. At our Jan-Cen Racing Engines dyno facility we have dynoed various systems, and in the end T&D remains at the top of our list. We have worked very closely with T&D on many different designs and have really been pleased with everything they do. These guys have a first class operation, the pricing is great and the availability of parts is even better. The innovation never stops and that is what makes this company so valuable in the market place. We are very excited that they see this as a great opportunity to be a part of our organization and really help drive home some new business for them,” said Janis.

“T&D Machine Products is extremely excited to be involved with Mike Janis and his Pro Modified race team,” said Larry Tores, Owner at T&D Machine Products. “Janis and Jan-Cen Racing Engines have been long time users of T&D shaft-mount roller rockers, and the cooperation between our two companies has been an extremely good one for many years, We at T&D look forward to that relationship to continue, for Mike Janis himself to have further success in Pro Modified,” said Tores

About T&D Machine Products Rocker Arms

T&D Machine Products has been manufacturing specialized components for racing since 1975. A successful drag racer and small business owner, Larry Tores founded the company in his back yard garage, starting with better pieces for his own racecars, spreading to machining similar items for his friends, and moving into components for major motorsports manufacturers.  One of these product lines was shaft-mount roller rocker systems. Tores, a many time NHRA event winner, and other competitors proved the merit of the firm’s rocker systems. In the early 1980s T&D was called upon to develop valve train components for Buick’s stock block V-6 engine program which eventually established new performance standards at the Indy 500 and in Busch Grand National competition.  The success of this and other programs led to requests from engine builders from every form of motorsports for T&D to engineer similar shaft-mount roller rocker arm systems for the powerplants they were developing and racing. It wasn’t long before T&D Machine Products was only producing rocker arms.
