team was proud to see Ray earn the team’s first semifinal round appearance of the year

aboard the newly-painted, signature red and yellow color scheme of the Star Racing Buell motorcycles

Star Racing team seeks marketing partners to pursue 2014 NHRA Championship

The Star Racing Pro Stock Motorcycle team received some unexpected news recently as they were preparing to field their

No. 2 driver Michael Ray

and Rookie of the Year candidate Chaz Kennedy. After a successful two-season return to professional drag racing competition,

Star Racing’s primary sponsor announced that they would be unable to continue the marketing partnership for the

2014 National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) season.

This surprising news sent the team scrambling to reach out to other potential marketing partners that would be interested in

achieving the exposure and brand awareness that this No. 2 team and potential Rookie of the Year can provide.

Although the team’s previous sponsor, Sovereign, had planned to support the team throughout the 2014 season,

uncertain economic conditions in Central Europe where the company operates prevented them from continuing this

sponsorship.

Star Racing is currently seeking companies or individuals that want the marketing opportunities or

hospitality benefits that this two-motorcycle Championship-caliber team can ...
