Delta Thunder Motorsports in Ruleville offers a variety of services to its customers, services that include car detailing, racing fuel and parts, hand tools, custom-made trailers, motor oils and hydraulic fluids and hoses. Mike Myers and Ronny Henley, Jr. own the multi-faceted business that Myers said started out as a destination racing parts store.
“We started out as a racecar shop,” said Myers. “We sold parts for dirt track cars and drag cars and trucks, along with fuel. That’s pretty much what we started out doing. Then, we went to a full-line parts house, selling automotive parts for all makes and models. We also do full car-detailing, including shampooing carpets and waxing and buffing. Just anything to do with cleaning a vehicle, we do it. And we sell a full line of motor oils and hydraulic fluids.”
Myers said he and Henley opened the store in 2017 and have been growing the business since then.
“We do a really good local business,” he added. “Cleveland, Ruleville, Drew and surrounding areas are basically our customers. And, they have all been supportive and welcoming. And, we’ve been adding other items to our business as we go, such as a large line of semi-truck parts. We have brakes, air bags, alternators, starters, and many other parts and items. We’re also a full-line hardware dealer too. We sell all your plumbing, electrical, yard and garden supplies as well.”
Myers explained that he and Henley farm together as well as co-own the store, so they felt there could eventually be benefits to owning a parts store too.
“Since we own a farm too, we figured it would be to our benefit to someday have our own parts supplier since we go through so many parts for our equipment. And so that’s something else we’ve added too; we now sell farm equipment parts. We also make our own hydraulic hoses, which is a big thing in farming. And we can place just about any kind of special order that anyone might need, such as engine overhaul kits or anything like that.”
