Ticats Go Coast-To-Coast With Whitlock
Hamilton, Ontario -- The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are excited to announce a brand new partnership with Dave Whitlock and Whitlock Motorsports of the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.
"Dave's car will be taking the Ticats brand coast-to-coast," said Ticats President Scott Mitchell. "We're confident that the NASCAR Canadian Tire series is going to be an overwhelming success and we're very excited that the Ticats will be a part of it. We are looking forward to the inaugural race this Saturday at Cayuga's famed 5/8 mile oval where team Whitlock recorded a win in 2006 and will hopefully get off to a great start this year and pickup where they left off."
The Ticats logo will be prominently featured on the rear quarter panels, behind the wheel and across the back of the #39 Dickies/Hamilton Tiger-Cats/NMT Dodge racecar. The logo is also embroidered on the front upper chest of Whitlock's race suit and on all crew uniforms as well as on the team's hauler, pit cart and other team equipment.
"We are very pleased to add the Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats as a partner in 2007," stated team owner and driver Dave Whitlock. "This is an exciting new relationship which will result in some unique cross marketing opportunities and I look forward to a long term partnership with the team. Fans of both sports will get an opportunity to interact with each other as we bring the #39 race car to selected Ticats home games and we in turn host the Ticats at selected NASCAR Canadian Tire Series race events."
After finishing fourth in the CASCAR Championship point standings over the past two seasons, with his first four Dodge seasons now in the record books, a revised engine program this season has Whitlock clearly focused on consistency in an effort to capture the first ever NASCAR Canadian Tire Series Championship.
