*sigh* The bigshots always forget about the little guys. I remember a few years back, I helped Masami not fall off a trash can at the Reedy Race (he was taking pictures) and I haven't seen any Yokomo kick downs

You could always take the owner to strip club.....get him toasted, then get one of the girls giving him a lap dance to trick him into signing your sponsorship contract.....and of course some quality photos that can be shown to the wife/girlfriend always help keep it enforced, regardless of performance.....

The guy looks too young to be allowed in a strip club

being sponsored by a company is a way of saying your happy to run their product and represent them wherever you go...but to get the sponsorships i think the biggest thing is helping others out at the track as well as being couteous on the track...being fast helps also

The only way you will get a sponsor is to race and practice alot. Become a racer that is in the mix and be known as o-boy he is in my race. Go to big races. Make the A-main at your local track and so on. To be sponsored you have to take it serious. Like a job.

when i picked up my first sponser all anyone wanted to know was what can you get for me. my general answer was a website address and a phone number and all the help i got. my sponser took a chance on me and i will do my best to take care of them in anyway i can.

i think you need to work on a race resume listing your races and finishing places and what kind of cars you have ect ect. It's basicly applying for a job. if you don't do well you will be fired.

thats my suggestion is put out a resume and get it out into the market. all thay can do is say no and there are lots of companies out there

thanks RD Logics

EddieO - How do you think Ellis and Kane got on the team. Just kidding.

HKLosi - next time your at the track and I'm there, come talk to me. Make sure you keep practing, and then practice some more. Thats the only way to get fast. I appreciate your support for our company.

Thanks - Brad

You might be kidding but dont make me show Amanda the Pics from that one time...... So my contract just got extended through the 2006 season with Im sure what will be a nice signing bonus.

HK Losi.....just keep on racing and moving up in the classes and just doing what you are doing. From what I have seen of you at the track you just need more track time.....and experience. Dont worry it will happen at some point.....and with more track time it might happen sooner then you think.

Attitude should be just as important as ability because I wont purchase products from a company with a sponsored driver who is a poor sport and/or has a bad attitude. The unfortunate part is that i see alot of bad sportsmanship from sponsored drivers on the local level. Just hope the sponsors see these things.

Man, futureal couldn't have said that any better...a lot fo times being sponsored isn't all it's cracked up to be. It sucked the fun out of racing for me...and we can't have that.
