RICH KUIKEN JR WINS SPONSORSHIP CONTEST
NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour racer Rich Kuiken Jr. is a happy
young man. His entry in the Chad Sinon Motorsports/Joe Bertothy
sponsorship contest took first place and earned him $4,000 in cash along
with more than $1,000 in awards.
The Staffordville, NJ racer will carry the Sinon/BPG Racing
and Joe Bertothy logos on his race vehicles.
The Kuiken entry won out over more than 170 entries with some
coming from as far away as California.
“We had some fantastic entries. A lot of hard work went into
many of the sponsorship proposals that were entered in the contest,”
said contest organizer Ernie Saxton, publisher of Motorsports
Sponsorship Marketing News. “Kuiken’s entry had it all. The offer, the
demographics, the media coverage and much more was all presented in a
very attractive package. It was one of the best we have seen on this
Kuiken Jr. will race the full NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified
Tour along with the huge North-South Shootout in Concord, NC late in the
season. If finances will allow the team will also run some of the NASCAR
Northern and ASA Southern Modified races.
“It was an honor to win the contest.” said young Kuiken. “Considering
there were more than 170 entries it is quite an accomplishment to be the
winner. It goes without saying that we will put the money and the awards
to good use.”
In addition to the $4,000 cash Kuiken will receive more than
$200 worth of Hero Cards courtesy of Chris Budihas’ Racerboy Marketing,
a $200 custom helmet paint job by Brian Hirthler’s Four Star Lettering,
a website creation from Jay Dugan’s Radical Design valued at more than
$500 along with an Ernie Saxton Sponsorship and Consulting package
valued at more than $500.
Saxton, along with Sinon, is now considering the possibility
of offering another sponsorship contest near the middle of the season.
