Will be using this thread to update until the dirt classic

With the 12th annual Dirt Classic 2 weeks away (September 14th), it’s the one time per year where we look to the racing community and local businesses to support a class.

*Please share this post and tag a friend or local business to be put into a giveaway for two free pit pass for the dirt classic!*

These are classes we are looking to be sponsored (there can be more than one sponsor on a class):

Baby Champs- World Source Integration
Kid karts- DC Liquidators
Jr. 1 champ: Uptown Garage
Predator champ: Jeff at Rage Karts
Sr champ:
Jr green clone: Jeff’s Towing
Jr 3 clone: Kankakee Swapmeet
Open kart predator: Ozzie Motorsports
Flathead medium: Kankakee Swapmeet
Clone medium:
Clone heavy: K3 Karting

Anyone who sponsors a class will be announced throughout the night, during the drivers meeting, on social media, and if you provide us with a banner we will hang it up at the track and can pass out business cards or flyers.

I will update this post as we receive sponsors. Please message me on the Facebook page or contact Joe @ 815-953-4112 if you’re interested in sponsoring a class.
