BECHTELSVILLE, PA T.P. Trailers of Limerick, PA has signed on as a major sponsor at NASCAR sanctioned Grandview Speedway for the 2012 racing season.
The sponsorship from T.P. Trailers will put $250 more in the winner’s pay envelope for the NASCAR 358 Modified feature each Saturday night. In addition the winner of each Sportsman feature and Late Model feature will earn an additional $100 courtesy of the Limerick based trailer dealer.
With the increase the winner of a regular Saturday night NASCAR 358 Modified feature race will now earn $2750 as long as there is an easily visible T.P. Trailers decal on each side of the car. The Late Model feature winner will earn $900 and the Sportsman winner takes home $700 again provided the decals are in place.
It is important that racers understand that the bonus cash will only be paid to the feature winners as long as they have clearly visible T.P. Trailers decals on both sides of their race cars. The bonus money will be paid with checks sent from the T.P. Trailers offices.
“For many years, the T.P. Trailer family has been involved in the Grandview Speedway experience attending the races with our children, as well as sponsoring different teams. Watching the growth of Grandview, we thought it would be exciting to try a new presence, which holds the opportunity for more teams to benefit, by giving each driver in 358 Modifieds, Late Models and Sportsman at Grandview a chance to get a little bonus when they cross into the winner’s circle. It might help to offset their costs in this economy, and honestly, it is good for T.P. as well,” said T.P. co-owner Tommy Perkins.
T.P. has been in operation more than 50 years. They offer every kind of open and enclosed trailers including those for racecars, motorcycles, cargo, utility, equipment and much more. In addition they offer rental and sales of snow removal equipment.
Portable storage is another division of T.P. Trailers which includes ground level containers, mobile field offices and storage trailers. T.P. also offers Truck and Trailer maintenance, repair and parts division on-site offering PA and DOT state inspections, hitches, wheel alignments and more.
T.P. also offers daily, weekly and monthly trailer rentals for that last minute emergency, long-planned vacation or weekend landscaper.
In return for their support of Saturday night NASCAR stock car racing TP Trailers will receive an 8 x 16 billboard in the third turn of the one-third-mile, banked clay track, a sponsorship night (date to be announced), adverting in the track magazine (the Grandview Groove) and promotional announcements throughout the season plus other benefits.
Opportunities for marketing through motorsports at Grandview are presently available and include track magazine and billboard advertising, award and event sponsorships plus more. A color brochure is available from Ernie Saxton Communications, Inc. at 215.752.7797 or e-mail Esaxton144@aol.com
