An independent race was organized by MRE's Jay Regan and has received support from several companies within the industry.

Jay Regan Schnitz Motorsports, Inc. - Person Of The Week
Born September 24, 1963 in Newtown, Connecticut, Jay Regan grew up your typical ball and stick kid with no motorcycle influence. After the family moved to Florida as an early teenager, Jay, like many boys at that time, was introduced to motorcycles at the age of 15 just because you could get your motorcycle license a full year earlier than a car license. Since he had a couple of buddies who also rode, their interest soon turned to competition.
Today, most know Jay as the owner of Murdoch Racing Enterprises & Suncoast Distributing. What most don't know is that Jay was an accomplished rider himself during the IDBA, NMRA, and early Prostar eras. He was the 1987 IDBA Heads-up Rookie of the Year, 1990 IDBA Top Gas Champion, and 2-time Pro Mod top ten. But if you look through the history books, Jay's name does not show up. Jay competed under the name Jimmy Hayes.
The subject of middle names came up and HAYES happens to be Jay's.
For whatever reason, Jay decided to do it. The next month was one of those infamous Tom Laughlin DRAGBIKE! races up in Gainesville. Jay filled out his tech card with "Jimmy Hayes" on the name line.
Mike used to always try to pawn them off on Jay, then would get mad when the customers would come back to him after being unable to find "Jay", where Mike had steered them to!
Jay took over as owner of MRE after the death of Mike Murdoch in 1993.
Jay became an institution on Prostar's manufacturer's midway and had a successful career as team owner of numerous racers, most notably in Pro Mod. In all, Jay and team amassed over 20 national event wins, several Pro Mod & Funnybike top ten plates and was the recipient of a couple of "Sponsor of the Year" awards. In 1993 he lost the Pro Mod championship to Billy Vose by one round. Jay came into the World Finals event only needing to go a couple of rounds to clinch the title. He went out early and Billy had to win the event and set the record, which he did beating Jay by less than 10 points on today's standards. The next year Jay won the #3 and #7 plates with one bike and two riders, Rick Perry and himself, respectively.
Jay coined the phrase Pro Mod to bring the class into existence. Originally known as Pro Comp which was dominated by turbos, the class did not have it's own identity as did Funnybike. IHRA's Pro Mod class was the most popular car class at the time, so Jay convinced Scooter Kizer to change the name by saying, "If you change the name to Pro Mod, I'll sponsor the class. Thus started the MRE Pro Mod Challenge, where qualifying points earned riders the right to compete in an 8-bike race within a race at the National Finals. The success of the modern day Pro Mod class can thank Jay for establishing its roots.
Now you know the history behind the man. But please, leave it behind him, Jimmy Hayes is a name from the past and I'm sure Jay would appreciate it if you kept it that way.

Press Release:THE FINALS ARE ON! Manufacturers Cup! | Dragbike News In The World of Motorcycle Drag Racing!, 5 Nov 2010 [cached]
One of the recipients of the e-mail was Jay Regan, owner of Murdoch Racing Enterprises, a long standing sponsor and midway vendor dating all the way back to the IDBA days. "When I got the e-mail from Jackie, my first thought was oh-no, he we go again, starting all over" Regan replied.
The track manager and Regan collaborated with the group and arrived at an agreement and the race was on!
"What more can you say about the group that so quickly came on board other than they truly do care deeply about the sport; And, I guess you will have to include me in that statement as well" said Regan.
There will be no memberships to buy, no hidden fees, just a big 'ol motorcycle dragrace to cap off an otherwise very tough year for the sport"Regan stated.
Obviously, there is very much more detail to come but the group felt it was the right time to make the announcement that the Finals "ARE ON" so everybody can start making plans to attend. Spread the word, you will not want to miss this event! Stay tuned as Regan "promises nearly weekly updates with the specific details, updates and announcements leading up to the event. When prodded for a tidbit of scoop Regan replied "How does $2500.00 to win each day MPS Pro ET sound? Sound's good, real good. We'll surely be staying tuned…………
Regan ended with the following; "Everyone needs to know who is in this group. In reality, you most likely know each and every one of them. These are the people, who via sponsorship are making this event happen. Without them I can assure you this event would not stand a chance of happening" Please take your hats off to and go out of your way to say a heartfelt Thank You to Jackie Bryce of Star Racing , Brock Davidson of Brock's Performance , Skip Dowling of Orient Express , Paul Gast of Fast by Gast , Eric Hochstetler of MTC Engineering , Don Plesser of PR Factory Store , Jay Regan of Murdoch Racing Enterprises , Dan Rudd of MPS and Dave Schnitz of Schnitz Racing. press release/story provided by member of Manufacturers Cup Group
