ISMA-Lucas Oil Series Receives More Good News For Upcoming Season

Oswego, NY - Mike Jarrett of Helping Hands Foundation decided recently to become a major sponsor on the Soule Racing Team number 32 supermodified - ironically without having ever met any of the race team or any of the ISMA officers or members. When he did get introduced to the team and to ISMA in general at the Racearama in early March, he apparently liked what he heard and saw. He handed the ISMA organization more pre-season good news... an additional sponsorship check to add to the general ISMA coffers as well the sponsorship of the New England Region point fund which is kept separately for drivers alone.

The Helping Hands Foundation, based in Wrentham, Mass., is a small for-profit corporation, and it is growing. It is currently associated with three regional groups - Lupus Foundation of Mass., Sacred Heart Community Missions of Mass. and the Association of Blind Citizens, based locally in Holbrook, Mass. Helping Hands solicits all types of items such as cars, trucks, boats, RV's, art objects, estate property, real estate - any objects of value - and sells them with a share of the profit going to assist the aforementioned charities. Last season that share reached the $1 million mark. As the company grows, so does the charitable share.

New ISMA president Howie Lane was ecstatic about the new sponsorship and the positive aspects of his early months at the helm of the 30 year-old organization. "I really want to thank Mike and Helping Hands. He's a great guy and we really appreciate the additional sponsorship money for this season as well as his sponsoring of the Soule Race Team. This was an unexpected surprise and we certainly will try our best to support him as well," said Lane after the 3-day race show in West Springfield. "I'd like to thank everyone who helped make the weekend a success - the people who helped man the ISMA booth, the drivers who participated in the autograph session and of course Val and his staff at Speedway Scene for making the show another great venue for race tracks, teams and fans to get together."

ISMA, with Lucas Oil and Helping Hands Foundation already onboard, looks forward to their May 1-2 opening weekend at Star and Seekonk Speedways as the traveling winged supermodified organization begins its 30th anniversary year.
