Blanco Basura, maker of stylish white trash apparel, had planned to debut its new line of women's clothing--Basura Blanca--over the weekend at the Fram Autolite NHRA Nationals, however its appearance was cut short and Blanco Basura was asked to leave early on the first day of the event.

"I have to say it is quite frustrating. We are a small startup with a limited budget and we thought this NHRA event was the perfect place to announce our new Basura Blanca line of women's apparel," said Scott Gold, CEO of Blanco Basura, "As we expected, the response to the Blanco Basura and Basura Blanca apparel lines was overwhelmingly positive, but unfortunately not everyone in attendance got see them. To capture the attention of just a small percentage of the 80,000 expected attendees would have been great."

Scott Gold went on to say that the cost in both time and money to prepare for the event was not insubstantial, "We spent quite a bit of money preparing for this event and we followed the NHRA's rules to the letter, so to be asked to leave before things really even started, well, it was very disappointing. And the real kicker is the fact that we were asked to leave after other vendors complained about the attention we were receiving. We would have raised a bigger stink, but the folks at Infineon Speedway were caught in the middle and it didn't seem right to continue putting pressure on them when the real issue appeared to be with the NHRA."

"It isn't just about the money, although it did affect us monetarily," continued Mr. Gold, "Blanco Basura intended to use the Fram Autolite Nationals to scout several NHRA race teams for possible sponsorship opportunities, but we have decided to put that on hold for now.” Instead, Blanco Basura will sponsor Todd Sousa's #97 NASCAR Busch Series Monte Carlo. His first race will be in the Zippo 200 event at Watkins Glen on August 13th and 14th.

Blanco Basura does intend to honor its promise to NHRA event attendees for free shipping on website orders of $30.00 or more until August 15th, 2005. They need simply to enter "NHRA" in the coupon code field when placing an order in the online store at to receive free UPS Ground shipping.

The Blanco Basura and Basura Blanca divisions of the Tiffin Company, Inc., are a line of stylish white trash apparel consisting of embroidered and screen printed shirts, tops, hoodies and hats. The Tiffin Company, Inc. located in Santa Cruz, California.
