Tim Tindle

Tim Tindle, Promod driver for the Tindle Racing team, is a drag racing fanatic who began his love for drag racing only 10 years ago. Tindle began his quest for a drag racing championship rather late, compared to his competitors, but has excelled in every class he has competed in; Promod, Quick Rod, Super Comp, Bracket Racing, and Top Sportsman.

On December 12, 2005, Tindle announced the formation of the Tindle Racing Promod Team, after purchasing a Promod Championship operation. His goal is to build on that successful platform to field a championship Promodified team.

In 2007, he became the lead driver for the team and took seat of the reigning AMS Promod Champion’s 1967 Shelby Mustang. His impressive opening season performance was acknowledged at the season finale when he finished sixth in points and was chosen as the 2007 AMS Promod Challenge Rookie of the Year.

Tindle earned the 2007 Rookie of the Year by winning his first career National Event that year after defeating Jay Payne in the Pro Mod final round of the ProCare RX Super Nationals at Raceway Park, Englishtown, NJ. He then extended his second career National Event victory by winning the ProCare RX Pro Mod Clash in Las Vegas.

Tindle brings years of success as a site contractor and has a long history of success in the sport. This past 2009 season, he won the IHRA Spring Nationals at Rockingham Dragway during his IHRA debut. His second 2009 career victory came when he won the NHRA Summer Nationals at Topeka.

During his off time from Pro Mod Racing, family oriented Tindle and his wife Sonya spend time racing with their daughter Heather Tindle, who competes in Super Comp and Quick Rod, and their son T.J. Tindle who was the youngest driver to win an Outlaw 330 Championship in 2008.

Tindle has a heavy heart. In 2008, he and the Tindle Racing dedicated a weekend of racing for the benefit of the Leukemia Foundation; the care and cure of patients and families living with leukemia, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. The team sported special Leukemia Foundation uniforms and donated any profits to the foundation.

In 2010, Tindle will compete in the Pro Care RX Promod Challenge and will continue his quest for a National Championship. More information on Tim Tindle and the Tindle Racing Team, including photos, can be found on www.TindleRacing.com
