WEBSTER CITY, Iowa -- Five of the best United States Modified Touring Series (USMTS) drivers were selected to be part of the Casey's Crew, as part of Casey's General Stores' sponsorship of the racing organization, WhoWon.com reported.
The five drivers -- Al Hejna, Jason Hughes, Mark Noble, Kelly Shryock and Zack VanderBeek -- were selected based on series-leading attendance during the first nine seasons of the USMTS, and will be sponsored by Casey's General and their associated vendors for at least 10 races each during the 2008 season, according to the Web site.
Each driver will wear a branded Awesome Race Suit -- www.awesomeracesuits.com -- during their sponsorship period, and their vehicles will be professionally detailed with wrap technology from New Vision Graphics, the Web site reported.
As part of the sponsorship agreement, Casey's General holds the place of title sponsor of The Hunt for the O'Reilly USMTS National Championship and four O'Reilly USMTS National Tour events, WhoWon.com reported. In addition, the five drivers will make appearances at Casey's General locations, and the sponsorship will see the creation of branded spin-off merchandise such as apparel, die-cast and autograph cards, according to the report.
