When the 44th Annual RPM Promoters Workshops convene in Las Vegas, Nevada next month, they will be underwritten by record sponsor support. K&K Insurance Group, the leading insurer of motorsports in the U.S.A. and Hoosier Racing Tire, the world’s largest manufacturer of racing tires, all made in the USA, continue to sponsor the promoters’ newsletter Racing Promotion Monthly and the Workshops as year ‘round sponsors. This winter, they are joined by a record 13 supporting sponsors.
“The commitment of sponsors underwriting our Workshops is remarkable. They recognized the challenges promoters face and stepped up to support promoters as they navigate today’s challenging economic and recreational environment,” said Stewart Doty, Chairman of the Workshops. “These sponsors acknowledge the mutual interests everyone shares at the grassroots level and the importance of grassroots racing’s health to the sport overall.”
