BALLEW MOTORSPORTS "SECURES" PARTNERSHIP WITH BLACKHAWK GROUP LLC
MOORESVILLE, NC (July 10, 2002) - Billy Ballew Motorsports has secured associate sponsorship from Blackhawk Group LLC, a Mooresville, NC based security and investigation services group. Blackhawk Group LLC will provide security services for Ballew's NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series team that fields the No. 15 Ford F-150 driven by Rich Bickle.
"After the recent burglary at our Mooresville race shop, we knew we had to take additional steps to provide more protection for our assets and equipment," stated Ballew. "We suffered a significant financial loss and we simply cannot afford to take any chances on something like that happening again. This is a great partnership for both Blackhawk LLC and Billy Ballew Motorsports. They get the exposure provided by the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series and we get piece of mind of knowing our facility and equipment is secure."
Ballew's team has made an impressive move up in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series point's ladder since putting Bickle behind the wheel. In three events, Bickle has averaged a 10th-place finish including a season-best sixth at Memphis .The team has jumped five positions from 22nd to 17th in the NCTS championship chase and currently sits just three points out 16th.
"We're excited about our affiliation with Billy Ballew Motorsports and the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series," said Troy Perry, managing partner of Blackhawk LLC. "This team has shown great potential over the past few weeks and we look forward to partnering with them in the future. This association allows us create a business-to-business relationship with the racing community. We have a variety of services that we can provide to the numerous NASCAR teams based in this area."
Blackhawk LLC Group is an integrated security and investigations services group providing physical security, executive protection and trademark infringement investigations.
Bickle's No. 15 Ford will carry the Blackhawk LLC Group logo into action Saturday, July 14, in the Kroger 225 at Kentucky Speedway. The event will be telecast live by ESPN and will be broadcast worldwide by MRN Radio.
