High Torque Sports is based in Newburgh, New York and owned and operated by Neal J. Wilkinson. Neal and partner Jeff Vizethann have worked tirelessly together to bring quality races and create opportunities for athletes to achieve their personal best. The mission since its inception for the past 4 years has been to bring large scale sporting events to the New York Hudson Valley to increase tourism and economic development, including Orange County, by attracting and supporting athletes on a national and international level. We have successfully attracted athletes from 15 states and two countries including Los Angeles, Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, Texas, Missouri, New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, South America and Canada. These athletes have brought an average of six friends and family members to cheer them on and celebrate the event. These visitors stayed at our host hotel, ate at our local restaurants, shopped at our retail stores, and contributed to our rental car service and airport volume.
