Now when the safety crew comes out to pull him off the wall he'll have sandwiches and cokes to offer them.

Not sure what mine cost between design time, production and installation. I have heard a wrap cost $1,500 to $3,500. I can tell you it did take two guys who do this EVERYDAY a little over 8 hours to install it.

SHEETZ is great, they get it. The MARRS promotional program is going to be great, the response form drivers and volunteers is amazing and we have not even started the season yet. I hope this opens the doors to others potential sponsors, not only to MEATHEAD Racing but other Club Racers.

I am more than willing to help other Club Racers learn how to put these deals together. Maybe I can get Jim to do another WEBLAPS deal where I give a sponsorship webinar. MEATHEAD Racing has great relationships with lots of sponsors and I am more than will to teach others how to do it.

I think it's great that a company is sponsoring regional level club racing. Most deals only support national events and leave the little guys left out.

I will patronize Sheetz whenever possible.

That looks great. Pretty neat to see a real sponsored car in the field and it really seems to make sense for Sheetz, I bet it will pay off for them assuming you keep the re-wrap jobs to a minimum! Do you get to put modified scca club stickers on it or will they allow custom colored ones?

I am running Nationals so I need to run the new SAFERACER National sticker along with the MAZDA and Toyo stuff. I will be adding those soon.

Tough crowd!!!!

Mike - great looking car with that wrap. Hope that it does a ton of business for your sponsor.

Love that you are bringing in sponsors from outside the world of racing. Feel that there are many more out there lurking just waiting for us to ask.

You are showing us the way. Let us know how it pans out and what it does for their business.

With the promotional program we are running we should be able to track the use of the coupons and gas cards after the events. We hope with some of that we will then be able to target even more effective strategies to drive people into the stores. Everyone I know stops for gas and a sandwich to or from the track, why not give them a reason to stop at SHEETZ, they make the BEST MTO sandwiches and offer the cleanest experience of any gas/convenience station.

Alan you are very kind. Everyone knows my car is fast and I suck, you on the other hand manage to consistently win in an old rental car with a junkyard motor.

Mike: impressive in every way (the sponsorship, tying in a deal for any other driver and volunteer who wants to participate, the eye-popping wrap on the car... Looks like it was re-painted, not just "wrapped").

What are the dimensions of the Sheetz stickers for other drivers who want to participate?

Sheetz is a terrific convenience mart: low-priced-high-quality gasoline, clean, excellent subs. When I first proposed getting some subs there (many years ago), Sue said she refused to eat a sandwich that came from a gas station; once she tried them, she decided they were top notch.

Too bad Sheetz is privately held; I'd buy stock.

The sticker is the same size as the scca sticker.

Weblaps.com has already sponsored one of our cars so that is not out of the question.
