SHOPaTicket.com is proud to announce it's sponsorship of Mike Boat for the 2003 USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series season. Boat will be defending his first USAC title, the 2002 New Mexico/Arizona Sprint Car Championship, earned during the USAC Series inaugural season. The Series was renamed this year, its' second, with the addition of venues in California, Nevada and Colorado. His next race will be the AZ Sprints On The ½ Mile event taking place at Manzanita Speedway in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday, April 5, 2003. Next week Mike will begin the defense of his title in USAC's 2003 Series debut to be held April 12th, at the Imperial Valley Speedway in El Centro, California.
Boat, part of the well-established racing family that includes Indy Racing League veteran Billy Boat, will defend his 2002 title racing with his own car, as he did during last year's Championship season. His Chevrolet-powered 360 Sprint Car will carry the SHOPaTicket.com logo during USAC's Southwest Sprint Car Series' second season.
SHOPaTicket.com, a division of Doehring Marketing, Inc., in Scottsdale, Arizona, was created in order to support Mike's Sprint Car Program. According to Caren Doehring, President of Doehring Marketing, Inc., the affiliation with Boat is a "dream come true." "Mike Boat and the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series represent all that is good in the motorsports community. A driver with proven skills, he is willing to put his own resources and money into his team. The results (last year) speak for themselves. He is the caliber of person that we want to support, both as a driver and role model for today's youth. And with the addition of speedways in the other southwestern states, the USAC Southwest Sprint Car Series is making quality racing accessible to so many more fans. We couldn't be more pleased and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."
SHOPaTicket.com, which offers tickets to IRL Series and NASCAR events as well as concerts and other special events, has also announced a program whereby independent race tracks, such as Manzanita Speedway and Imperial Valley Speedway, will be able to list their tickets free of charge. Says Doehring, "this program goes hand-in-hand with our support of Mike and our belief in the USAC Series. It will provide fans with a convenient way to secure tickets to these exciting races from a source other than the venue itself. This will be especially helpful to those fans who may wish to travel in order to attend races in the Sprint Car Series." SHOPaTicket.com's independent speedway ticket listing service will be available beginning April 7th.
