Begin Press Release:
DAYTON, Ohio (September 29, 2016) —Brock’s Performance shows how bolt-on magic is made while transforming a mild 2012 Suzuki Hayabusa into a Stupid Fast custom during episode three of ToyMakerz, a moto-wrenching reality TV showwhich airs this Friday, September 30 at 8:00 pm and 11:00 pm Eastern time on the Velocity Channel.
ToyMakerz premiered on September 16 to rave reviews just two weeks ago with a Gymkana-like road-rampage in Reidsvillle, North Carolina. The series is based on the wild life and vehicular creations of David Ankin, a former stunt man and motorcycle racer who’s now the owner, lead toy inventor and master fabricator at ToyMakerz, Inc., his custom speed shop in Reidsville, North Carolina.
To cast each episode, Ankin invites industry-leading, go-fast friends to help his crew build a different vehicle during the 10-segment, one-hour show, then burn rubber on the street and racetrack.
Davidson built street cred as a national-championship-winning, Suzuki-sponsored drag racer, tuner and mechanical engineer. After joining the 200 mph club and becoming the first man to hustle a street-legal bike through the quarter mile in less than eight seconds, he started Brock’s Performance in 2002. Many championships and top-speed records later, the company has become a global leader in the design, testing, retailing and distribution of go-fast motorcycle parts.
“I had a fantastic time on ToyMakerz,” says Davidson. Not only did we get to build a cool Busa, but we rolled it out of the shop and went riding together afterward. David Ankin is a true motorcycle enthusiast, a talented rider and an all-around good guy. It’s exciting that he’s dedicated himself to putting together an interesting television program utilizing his network of crazy talented friends.
“From this Four Horsemen episode to our wild rides in the Tanoms with Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony and Jason Bonham, we have made some great memories recently, and I’m looking forward to working with David and the rest of the ToyMakerz crew again very soon.”
