North Adams, MA (PRWEB) December 18, 2006
RacingJunk.com, the popular online classified service for racing and performance enthusiasts, will give away $55,000 in sponsorships in the "Give Back to the Racers Tour 2007." The announcement, made earlier today at the Performance Racing Industry's (PRI) annual trade show in Orlando, FL by Jim Liberatore, Chairman of the Board of Raceway Media and former CEO of Speed TV, is exciting news for racers across the country.
"Finding sponsors is a real challenge for grassroots racers," said Liberatore, "it's an expensive sport and we get sponsorship requests all the time. We are thrilled to be able to offer this program as a way to show our appreciation for their continued support."
"Give Back to the Racers Tour 2007" will feature a weekly giveaway of $1,000 beginning March 1st and running for 30 consecutive weeks. Each week, a winner will be randomly selected from among the qualified entries. Each of the 30 weekly winners will be entered to win the Grand Prize, a $15,000 sponsorship. RacingJunk members will vote for their favorite car and driver to determine the winner. In addition to the Grand Prize, two runners-up will also receive cash prizes, with $7,500 awarded for second place and $2,500 for third. The three winners will be flown to PRI 2007 and awarded their prizes at a special ceremony.
"Our members are our bread and butter," said Raceway Media co-founder Ryan Maturski. "These racers have helped RacingJunk.com to grow and thrive over the years and the company is now in a position to give something back. It's an exciting period of growth for us, and I am glad that the members will get to share in the benefits."
Since being incorporated in 2001, Raceway Media, which owns and operates RacingJunk.com, has experienced incredible growth, increasing its membership by more than 100,000 in the past year alone while more than doubling its monthly visitors to 1.4 million.
