Northern Force Renews Sponsorship Agreement

PROJECT TRACK CHAMPION SIGNS EXTENSION WITH NORTHERN FORCE RACING FOR 2013 — Team Will Compete in Two Events to Finish Out 2012 Season……

The inspirational message of Project Track Champion will continue to spread throughout North America in 2013 thanks in large part to the dedication of project founder Denny Snider and his commitment to once again sponsor the Northern Force Racing team next season.
This season was a landmark setting affair for both Project Track Champion and Northern Force Racing. The debut of the partnership in Quebec during the month of July marked the first time that a PTC branded vehicle had travelled outside of the province of Ontario, as well as gave the Northern Force team its first win in more than 20 years, and second-generation driver Jory Elliott his first ever victory. The team followed that up just nine days later with a win during the IHRA MOPAR Nitro Jam Nationals, at their home track in Grand Bend, Ontario.
The win in Grand Bend guaranteed the team a spot in the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions, which takes place in Memphis, Tennessee and will crown the World Champions for 2012, the middle of October. “We weren’t sure we could even afford to make the trip to Tennessee because of how small of a budget we run on,” said team owner Bob Elliott. “But thanks to Denny and PTC re-signing for next year we’re gonna be able to make that trip, which is a huge honor for us.”
Along with the trip to Memphis in October, the team will also try their luck this weekend at the NHRA JEGS Northern Sportsnationals in Columbus, Ohio. “I want a Wally more than anything and to win one at National Trail Raceway where I watched my dad run his nitro car in ’93 would be extra special,” said the second generation Elliott. “I can’t thank our sponsor, Project Track Champion, and Denny Snider enough for giving us the opportunity to continue racing this year and for picking our team to represent Project Track Champion in the drag racing community. We’re gonna do our best to put this car in the winner’s circle again before the seasons out.”
Project Track Champion is the first vehicle that allows those will disabilities and illnesses the opportunity to experience the excitement of racing first hand. The fully accessible race car allows the rider, and support workers, to strap-in to the passenger seat area of the vehicle where they can feel what it’s like to hit the banked turns of an oval track, or watch the tree come down and feel the acceleration as the car leaves the starting line at a dragstrip. In the spring of 2012 Project Track Champion founder Denny Snider founded Project Track Champion Access Motorsports in order to help raise awareness throughout the motorsports community for those with disabilities and illnesses. The Northern Force Racing team was chosen as ambassadors for the project within the drag racing community.
The NHRA JEGS Northern Sportsnationals get started this Friday, September 21st, with two qualifying sessions, while the IHRA Summit Racing Equipment Tournament of Champions will take place October 12-14 in Memphis, Tennessee.
