STA-RITE continues sponsorship with Tommy Baldwin Racing
Mooresville, NC (January 16, 2003) - After a successful pilot program with TBR in 2002, STA-RITE has agreed to renew their sponsorship with a limited program for the 2003 NASCAR Busch Series with Rookie of the Year contender Damon Lusk behind the wheel.
Although a specific schedule is still being fine-tuned, STA-RITE will race the TBR Dodge in the Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway on February 15th for the "Koolerz 300".
"The over-whelming response from our customers after last season's pilot programs at Richmond and Atlanta played a big role in expanding the STA-RITE race program in 2003," said STA-RITE's Dan Mansfield.
Lusk, 25, ran two races for TBR last season at Richmond and Atlanta. His well-rounded background perfectly fit with TBR's mission and both driver and team are looking forward to a strong 2003.
"We're just really excited about our future," said co-owner Tommy Baldwin, "We know Damon is going to make it all the way to the top of this sport and we are very confident in his abilities. Having STA-RITE working hard to support us again is just what we needed to advance our team, Damon's career and ultimately, STA-RITE's marketability and brand awareness."
STA-RITE will be the primary sponsor starting in Daytona. They are eager to continue with the development of the TBR program.
"Everyone at STA-RITE can't say enough about the whole Tommy Baldwin Race Team and Damon Lusk," added Mansfield. "The STA-RITE nationwide dealers and distributors are ready to get behind Damon and TBR to strengthen and grow the STA-RITE brand awareness through our NASCAR programs."
