They say patience is a virtue and for Rick Kopp those words couldn’t be more accurate. With the Quick 32 Series presented by NAPA Auto Parts season only a month away, Rick and his Kopp Motorsports team continue to gain momentum with the signing of two new sponsors. The team will once again join forces with Stanley Black & Decker, this time through the company’s DEWALT and Stanley Tools brand, and has formed a partnership with Aulward Graphics, which will include that company providing printing services for the PMRA, Quick 32 and PBSS series’ in 2012.
Scott Moore, VP, CDIY Division of Stanley Black & Decker Canada, says, “We’re excited to extend our sports marketing program to include working with Rick and his team again. DEWALT and Stanley Hand Tools is proud to associate our brands with first-class sports organizations such as Kopp Motorsports and the spirit of excellence they represent.”
The Stanley Black & Decker sports marketing program also includes NASCAR, Professional Bull Riding, Major League Baseball, NHL Hockey (Montreal Canadiens and Calgary Flames), & European Soccer League sponsorships.
“I am extremely pleased to once again be linked with such well known names as Stanley Hand Tools and DEWALT,” says Kopp. “I look forward to another long and successful relationship with this company and couldn’t be happier to have them back on our team!”
Also joining the Kopp Motorsports sponsorship portfolio for the 2012 season is Stoney Creek, Ontario based Aulward Graphics, which speciailizes in prepress, printing, bindery, custom die cutting and fulfillment using state of the art equipment. “Blaine Prince and the whole team at Aulward are first class and we couldn’t be happier to bring them not only into the Kopp Motorsports family, but also into the professional drag racing community in a big way,” stated Kopp.
The first event of the 2012 season for the Kopp Motorsports team is the Victoria Day Weekend Challenge hosted at Toronto Motorsports Park, May 18-20.
