BryanMark Financial Returns For Third Season With Stevenson Motorsports
Firm that caters to exclusive clientele finds rewards in racing with Grand-Am team

The 2010 season of the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No.16 will mark the third year that sponsor BryanMark Financial will be on board with the Stevenson Motorsports Team. The firm's support has been a major factor in the success the team has enjoyed the last two years, with second and third place finishes in the season championships the end result.

For 2010, the Stevenson Team has expanded from a single car to four brand new Chevrolet Camaro race cars. Two cars will compete in the Grand-Am Rolex Series and two will run the full season of the Continental Tire Challenge Series. The continued support of BryanMark Financial was a key to team owner John Stevenson's decision to expand the team.

Team owner John Stevenson: "It's great to have Nick Bellon and BryanMark Financial Group back again this year as a sponsor! Nick's sponsorship will certainly help in our team's success. His involvement in Grand-Am racing has opened a lot of new doors for the BryanMark Group but Nick is also a serious race enthusiast. The Stevenson team and I enjoy having Nick as part of our organization and we wish Nick and BryanMark a successful 2010!"

BryanMark Financial Group was founded with the mission of providing sophisticated planning solutions to affluent and ultra-affluent clientele. Nick Bellon is a Principal of the firm and he led the corporate racing sponsorship initiative that brought the firm to Stevenson Motorsports.

Bellon: "We couldn't be more pleased to have been a part of the Stevenson success story the last two years. John and Susan Stevenson, and the whole Stevenson team, have shown time and again that they are committed to putting forth a professional effort each and every race weekend.

"At BryanMark, we pride ourselves on developing strong personal relationships with our clients.

As sponsors of the team we have come to know that John and Susan are great people who deserve to win a championship. We value our relationship with them just as we do with our clients. I know that everyone on the Stevenson team is going to work hard to make John's dream of winning a championship come true this season and we are proud to be associated with them as they move towards that goal."

More than just a corporate sponsor, Bellon is also a fan of sportscar racing and his involvement as the face of BryanMark brings with it some personally satisfying rewards.

"I personally try to attend every race -- I think I only missed one or two. I love the atmosphere on race weekends and just being able to spend time with the team and marvel at how well they work to keep the team competitive."

That same competitive spirit exhibited by the Stevenson team is mirrored in the professional approach taken by BryanMark towards its exclusive clientele.

"BryanMark was cited as the fastest growing independent company in the St. Louis area in 2008 and in the top ten in 2009. We can both appreciate and enjoy the growth that the Stevenson team is experiencing. We look forward to supporting them again this season and for the foreseeable future.

"I like to consider Grand-Am the perfect fit for any company that wants to market to an affluent fan base," Bellon added. "Sports car racing appeals to our demographic, and we are committed to building our brand within the Grand-Am community."
