Brad Smith Motorsports Announces Full ARCA Series Season in 2010; ApplianceZone.com to Expand Support
COVINGTON KY - ApplianceZone.com, one of the largest online retailers of appliance parts and accessories, will renew and expand its primary sponsorship of the Brad Smith Motorsports team for 2010 in the ARCA Racing Series presented by RE/MAX and Menards-building on a marketing partnership initially established in April of 2009.
Jim Allen, CEO and founder of ApplianceZone.com, says the race team will be more polished and competitive in 2010 as a result of a new short-track car, strong intermediate track cars, and a respectable superspeedway restrictor-plate car. Roush-Yates powerplants will be added to the intermediate track cars and a professional toterhome-trailer unit is being purchased.
"Motorsports sponsorship is a 'family friendly' activity that enables our family-owned business to attract, reward and interact with the hundreds of thousands of households relying on the ApplianceZone.com for quality products and service at a 'family friendly' cost," said ApplianceZone.com's CEO and founder, Jim Allen. "Brad Smith and his team share our competitive spirit, family values and enthusiasm for racing. We're looking forward to building on what we've already accomplished together and hope ApplianceZone.com customers and friends will get involved in our mission to win lots of exciting races in the year ahead."
Brad Smith, CEO of Brad Smith Motorsports Inc., is equally enthusiastic about the year ahead.
"It feels great to have our many years of hard work result in this partnership with ApplianceZone.com," he said. "Landing them as our primary sponsor is a strong indicator that this team is moving in the right direction. It's a huge step up for our program and a real opportunity to turn this team into a consistent top-10 competitor. We're committed to doing a great job for the ApplianceZone family and distributors, customers and race fans, and will surprise a few people in 2010."
The ApplianceZone.com/Brad Smith Motorsports team plans to participate in the full ARCA (Automobile Racing Club of America) Racing Series schedule in 2010. The series, now going into its 58th season, is comprised of twenty events including a diverse combination of superspeedways, short tracks, dirt tracks and road courses.
Daytona Int'l Speedway will host the season opener for the 47th consecutive season. The Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200 will follow pole qualifying for the Daytona 500, and serve as the preamble for the same-day NASCAR Sprint Cup Budweiser Shootout on Saturday, February 6th. The 2010 tour will conclude with championship weekend at Rockingham Speedway on October 9th.
In between, the series will appear at a wide variety of venues making up the most versatile mix in all of motorsports.
