Many benefits to Motorsports sponsorship

By Jason Dale Searcy

Just by clicking on this link you should feel good about yourself.  As a matter of fact, you now can call auto racing "your sport" even if you don't race.  Just by following along you are the most important part of "our sport," the fan.

It's a proven fact that race fans are second to only hunting dogs when it comes to loyalty, and dogs don't spend any money so, I move race fans up to number one in my book. 

If you have ever considered putting your name on a race car or sponsoring Motorsports in any way, think of this

Eilen named 2012 MN Asphalt driver of the year

By Jason D Searcy

In June of 2010 after a bad wreck at Hawkeye Downs it was suggested to Jonathan Eilen that he might want to consider giving up racing cars and do something different, like basketball.  A perfectly reasonable thought considering he was lying in a hospital bed with a broken L3 vertebra in his lower back and four broken ribs.

Eilen did not give up on his chosen sport, as a matter of fact, that suggestion made him more determined than ever to push forward, do the physical therapy and come back better than ever.

Jonathan Eilen from Hampton (MN) has been named the Speed Talk on 1360 2012 Minnesota Asphalt driver of the year.  He is the first MN driver to win the ASA Midwest tour Championship since Dan Fredrickson won in 2008.  Eilen scored a win and seven "top 5" finishes during the 12 race Super Late Model touring schedule.
