Scottsdale motorcycle racer, 7-time land speed record holder and team owner, Valerie Thompson, recently signed NPmotowear Products as a new sponsor for the 2015 racing season.
NPmoto products was founded in 2005 by Nick Plenzick to provide motorcyclists and racers with a variety of apparel and accessories that provide maximum comfort and convenience to riders worldwide.
“We have sold many fine products from a variety of excellent manufactures over the years. When we began production of our own products, I decided I wanted them tested in extreme conditions. In addition to our long distance riders, I’m a big believer that racing improves the breed,” said NPmotowear owner/founder Nick Plenzick.
“When I was thinking of someone who could push the limits, Valerie Thompson was at the top of my list. Valerie’s feedback is extremely valuable to us and with it; I expect we will become the leader in base layer clothing for riders and non-riders alike. Valerie recently tested our base layer at the Texas Mile with a 217.7 mph (350.53 KM/H) run with great results,” added Plenzick.
“I’ve been wearing and testing NPmotowear apparel while riding and working around the shop. I can’t tell you how impressed I am. They offer products that enhance riding comfort in both cold and hot weather, while offering a real sense of style,” said Thompson.
“We couldn’t be more pleased to have someone of Valerie’s experience and racing accomplishments to promote NPmotowear layer clothing and accessories. After all, we have to keep ‘America’s Queen of Speed’ comfortable underneath her race suit at over 210 mph, and we have proven we can accomplish that goal,” said Plenzick.
In addition to seven land speed records, Thompson is an official member of the BUB Speed Trials 201 MPH Club, Mojave Magnum 200 MPH Club, Texas Mile 200 MPH Club, ECTA 200 MPH Club and a lifetime member of the prestigious Bonneville 200 MPH Club.
