Just A Little Helping Hand
You have a winning car with a winning driver, but what you don't have is SPONSORS.
That is the story of the owners of the #81 Florida Modified. Their car, with Ricky Wood behind the wheel, just won the 50-lap 'Dick Joslin Memorial Modified Race' at Orlando Speedworld. They would like to race in more open-wheel modified events, but as all racers know and car owners, times are hard and racing is expensive. Not only are there entry fees to pay, but tires to buy and gas.
To sponsor a car and have your name out 'In Lights' does not cost an arm and leg. You can sponsor a set of tires for a big race or maybe gas for a race. Or you could give as little as $50.00 a month to the car owner to help out and still have your name 'In Lights.' And you will find that if you need a race car in front of your business for people to see, you will have one. Race cars are a very big draw for people and you could be surprised at all the new business you could get.
If you love racing and you would like to be more involved, think about sponsoring a car, even this car. Then you can hang up winning photos of you and the whole race team and become more a part of a great sport we all love.
If interested in sponsorship and becoming part of the racing family, let us know.
