Valerie Thompson, owner/driver of Valerie Thompson Racing (VTR), will be hosting autograph and photo opportunities at the Martech Services Company display (Booth 10419) at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas from Oct. 30 – Nov. 3 from 9 am till 3 pm daily. She will also make appearances at the CTEK Battery Chargers booth during the APEX Show (Booth 852)

Thompson set 3 new land speed records this year in her campaign to become the world’s fastest motorcycle team owner/driver. Her Martech Services Company sponsored S1000RR is now the fastest production land speed racing BMW Superbike after she ran a top speed over 209 mph at the Mojave Magnum event in June. She now holds three land speed records in East Coast Timing Associations (ECTA) events and two records at famed the Bonneville Salt Flats BUB Speed Trials.

“I have attended the SEMA Show many times, but this time is really special for me. The owners of my primary sponsors, Martech Quality Air Breathing Systems and La-Man Corporation are Paul and Cindy Wright, who have been long-time friends. They took a chance on sponsoring me as a first time owner/driver of a land speed racing team. Without their support, we could never have achieved the great success we enjoyed this year. I’m excited to sing their praises at SEMA and consider myself lucky to have a sponsor whose products are as great as their friendship,” said Thompson.

Thompson added, “I will also be working with my long-time sponsor, CTEK Battery Chargers, at the APEX Show. Ken Palmann and his team at CTEK have been wonderful to work with, they truly do make the smartest battery chargers in the world. We have a lot of giveaways for APEX & SEMA, including hero cards, Stay Fast clothing, CTEK Comfort Indicators, and Martech Service Company racing shirt since we expect a lot of booth traffic at both events.”
