Title sponsorship of a race event offers several opportunities for the title sponsor to promote their business. For a $500 investment a title sponsor package will include the following:
Speedway billboards are located from turn two to turn three of the speedway and are easily viewed from the grandstands and pit area. Billboards are 4′ high x 16′ long. Each billboard is made of aluminum sheet with professional graphics, designed to the specs of the billboard sponsor.
Should a billboard be damaged and need to be repaired or replaced, the Speedway will take care of all costs. Should a billboard need to be replaced due to sponsor request because of change in sign design, natural weathering of the graphics or other sponsor changes, the billboard sponsor will be responsible for such costs.
All billboards sponsors will be invoiced at the beginning of the racing season. Billboards of sponsors who do not wish to renew their billboard lease will be removed.
