MVM by GALOT Motorsports makes its first public move since the company changed ownership in
October. The innovative wheelie bar manufacturer was started in 2012 by Mike Valerio. When the
company was purchased by GALOT Motorsports everyone knew there were good things ahead. The first of
new things for the company is a partnership with the PDRA to become the Official Wheelie Bar of the
eighth-mile doorslammer series. GALOT Motorsports representative and 2016 PDRA Pro Boost World
Champion, Kevin Rivenbark, has been heading up MVM by GALOT with Valerio's continued expert design
"We were very fortunate to be able to acquire a proven product such as MVM carbon wheelie bars,"
stated Rivenbark. "MVM has the only proven carbon wheelie bars on the market today, and that is
what separates us from the rest. We are planning to carry it to the next level.
"We're excited to be the Official Wheelie Bar of the PDRA," he added. "We want to support our
customer base and the larger racer base, and thought the PDRA was a good place to do it."
"GALOT Motorsports has always had a strong presence in the PDRA," added PDRA Director of Marketing,
Will Smith. "As World Champion racers, a host track to our marquee event, class sponsor, and now as
the Official Wheelie Bar of the PDRA, GALOT Motorsports has shown unwavering support of this
organization and its racers. We are thankful for their partnership and look forward to seeing more
great things from MVM by GALOT."
Rivenbark says the company has continued steady production throughout the ownership transition and
will focus on expanding the product line later this year, including bars for sportsman categories,
Alcohol Funny Car and more.
Rivenbark will attend PDRA events as an MVM by GALOT representative and will have limited parts
available at the GALOT Motorsports pit area.
