All about sponsors

Jim Butler

Race car sponsorships are a hard sell these days. In fact, I guess I should say there are no more race car sponsorships, only marketing partners. That’s the hip term at least. It’s difficult to sell a company on the positives of providing financial support to a dirt race team, in part because there just aren’t enough metrics to back up the decision.

Why I'm thankful

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I thought I’d run though a few of the things that I’m thankful for this year.

How often do we get put on the spot sitting around the dining room table during Thanksgiving, eyeing that last deviled egg or the last buttery roll, hoping no one beats you to it, when suddenly, out of the blue, someone suggests a roundtable discussion of what everyone is thankful for?

If you’re lucky, you’ll be near the top of the order and your answers will seem relatively MORE
