"Grand American is proud of the support we get for our racers from the auto and racing industries," Grand American President Roger Edmondson commented. "In keeping with our goal of controlling the cost of racing, having the support of these companies and their contributions to our teams is invaluable."
Products supported by these awards range from automobiles to racing parts to garage gear with 26 companies offering awards in the Rolex Series and 29 companies participating in the Grand-Am Cup program. A complete listing of awards is available online at www.grandamerican.com.
