Klock Werks Kustom Cycles is alleging that Clint Bowyer, a Nascar Driver, failed to pay $30,788.45 for customization work done on his Harley in late 2008 and early 2009. The complaint filed by Klock Werks on May 2, 2012 alleges that the work was performed at its South Dakota shop, with the bike being delivered to Clint Bowyer in Daytona in February 2009 during the Daytona 500 Nascar race. After Bowyer test-drove the motorcycle he requested to have it returned to South Dakota for further modifications. After these modifications Klock Werks redelivered the motorcycle in April 2009, this time to Bowyer Racing facility in Lexington, N.C.
Bowyer’s answer is to deny that he ever agreed to pay money to Klock Werks, but instead agreed to provide “certain promotional services and special accommodations within NASCAR and related publications”, that he fulfilled all his obligations and that the custom shop is no entitled to any money compensation. Sued in South Dakota, Bowyer also claims that South Dakota’s court lacks personal jurisdiction over him because he is a legal resident of North Carolina. (picture Bowyer/Klocks)
