Mundill Sparks Unique Sponsorship and Scholarship Deal with ProRaceSupply
Mundill is proud to announce a unique sponsorship agreement with ProRaceSupply LLC (PRS). The alliance will make possible scholarships for Mundill’s drivers set to compete in the Star Mazda Series. ProRaceSupply becomes the latest in a long line of dynamic companies to join forces with Mundill in support of this racing series, following notables like Eagles Canyon Raceway.
“Mundill is committed to our customers and is very excited to be able to offer this package to our 2010 drivers,” says Jeff Hill, owner of Mundill. “Our agreement with PRS demonstrates our commitment to our drivers’ success and underscores the importance of the Star Mazda series to Mundill’s core business.”
“The Star Mazda series provides the final step in education of young drivers as they transition to professionals in the competitive business of racing“. Jeff added, “to put this in perspective, the funds available to our drivers is equivalent to last year’s third Place Championship prize money.” PRS’ sponsorship to Mundill of up to $200,000 is to be divided among four full season Championship drivers. The $50,000 Cash Scholarships will significantly assist in meeting the financial requirements of racing as well as to assist each driver in their development within the Star Mazda Championship.
“We are very excited to team up with Mundill,” says Chris Streit, Principal Partner at ProRaceSupply. “We are committed to the motorsports market and this new venture with Mundill holds a lot of opportunity for both our companies.”
According to Streit, “in addition to the driver scholarships ProRaceSupply will be working hard to elevate Mundill to cutting-edge online technology, communication and commerce.” PRS provides synchronized software commerce and marketing solutions to the motorsports industry and will accelerate Mundill as the leader in commerce, online marketing and syndication. Notably this partnership will provide additional exposure and insight from the drivers, team, and crew members.
