Leeper's Stair Products To Partner Patrick Long as Associate Sponsor 

OAK PARK, Calif. -- Patrick Long has entered into an agreement with Leeper's Stair Products as an associate sponsor, making the Southern California company a strong partner in the young American driver's effort to capture this year's Slick 50 British Formula Ford Championship, announced Marco Repetto, Long's manager.

Leeper's Stair Products is a third-generation, family-run business that has been crafting the highest-quality stair products for more than half a century. Leepers is the West Coast's leading manufacturer of stair components, such as turned posts, balusters, handrail, and other stair-related products.

"We are pleased to announce Leeper's as a valuable member of Patrick's team," said Repetto. "Patrick is one of America's best young drivers, and Leeper's partnership will go a long way in helping him achieve his goal of driving in Formula One or CART."

The partnership with Long will also be a strong marketing tool for Leeper's business, as well, Repetto said. Leeper's hopes to leverage its quality products, national reputation, and association with Patrick to expand its business domestically as well as globally.

This season, Long, 19, is challenging for the Slick 50 British Formula Ford Championship, acknowledged as the most prestigious junior racing series in the world. After five races, Long is fourth in the championship, with several front row starts and one race win at Oulton Park. With more than half the season still remaining, Long is still a threat to win the title.

Patrick Long's championship quest continues June 23-24 at Castle Combe. For more information on Patrick Long, visit his website at: www.patricklong.com.
