    Well, if any MFGR would like to sponsor my race team, please PM me!

    We can run in 600 Supersport, 600 Superstock, 1000 Superstock and 1000 Superbike :)

    We haven't raced in a year or so.... But if someone's willing to cut a sponsorship check and have their logos painted all over the bikes, we'll damn sure pick it back up :D

    Not sure if they still sponsor, but Gunbroker.com sponsored a truck in the Craftsman Truck Series. Only saw one race with it, so I dont know if it was one of those part time sponsors or what.

    Siglite, I don't know a thing about bike racing but I do have an off-the-wall suggestion: contact Benelli USA public relations. One of Benelli's shotguns is a Supersport. Maybe you could strike up some interest because of that connection.

    Yup, but she's no Danica Patrick.

    That's a good idea Robert. If I were still actively racing, I'd probably try that. But alas, without serious sponsorship, it all got too expensive... so I'm relegated to going slow on the street. :(

    Yes but the other drivers made fun of their "tupperware" car and ignore the fact that it's never failed to finish a race except for the occasional Kb (broken crankshaft) that's due to the mechanics upping the compression way past spec on reman parts.

    And because the cylinders aren't supported.

    Glock actually had a logo hat promo a couple months ago advertising their race team.

    Remington used to have NASCAR team- Morgan Shepherd was their driver as I recall.

    Anything that gets the names out there in the mainstream is ok by me. I enjoy the ads during shows like personal defense tv and american riflemen as much as the shows. Those would look great on major networks during prime time :)
