We are in a bad way. One of the sponsors we thought was on board just bailed, and its hard. It costs us at least $50,000 to go race every time, and unless they really changed something, the most you can make at Daytona, if you win, is $29,000.
As many of you who follow me know, I work for BMR, Bill Martel Racing, we are a small ARCA Remax Series (ARCAracing.com
) team based out of Lebanon, PA just outside Hershey. Its a small team, made up mostly of volunteers pouring everything they have into these cars, because we have one of the most skilled stock car drivers ever. In his first time ever on a high speed track like Daytona at the winter test a few weeks ago, Kyle instantly was one of the front running cars all weekend. The kid has amazing amounts of talent and can give great feedback, and on top of that he is incredibly poised and well spoken. He's just an incredible talent. The team is hard at work getting everything ready for the upcoming Daytona race February 6th. This is the season opener, and possibly the biggest race of the season. There will be a lot of hype and media this year because of Danica Patrick making her stock car debut. We will be running with Danica, if not in front of. We have a very strong chance to run up front and contend to win the race.
But there is a catch. It takes money to make the car go, thats why we are reaching out.
There is be a press release announcing our sponsorships before the Daytona race on February 6th on the ARCA website, Catchfence.com, as well as our site and Facebook page "Bill Martel Racing". We are also looking towards additional media outlets for coverage. There is a good chance our driver Kyle will be on the "Inside ARCA Radio Show" during the Daytona week to talk about the team.
Any level of sponsorship will get you placed on all of our internet locations (website, team blog, and facebook fan page) as well as a logo on the 2010 Kyle Martel Autograph cards.
Primary, Secondary, Associate, and Product sponsorships are available. Every little bit helps. Cover the cost of licenses, travel, tires etc. Each set of tires is around $1700. And we use at least 5 sets a weekend, for an example.
