Introducing Team OG Racing!

We came up with this idea late last year, and tested it on a select group of our loyal customers. Yesterday, we sent out the first mass e-mail regarding this exciting new program - Team OG Racing.

We know that the vast majority of our customers are not lucky enough to bring in thousands of sponsor dollars from Red Bull, Target, Marlboro, etc. We also know that most of you are not full-time race car drivers. In reality, most of us are just regular folks who happen to enjoy driving and competing in cars. Whether you're tearing it up in a formula car, or just going out for a few laps in the family wagon, you are passionate about driving - just like us!

We want to hear about what you're doing. And we know that the most popular way is by reading your exploits in a blog. So we combined the two, and added a little bonus for helping us out - read more below:

Announcing - Team OG Racing Sponsorship Opportunity!

My first drivers suit was free and fit like skin on a hotdog. After my second ever race ever I knew I needed a new one.....A woman commented that I looked like a human bananna. I still have the suit, of course it stays in the closet.

Apparently one of our competitors created a similar program soon after this original posting. It's even called Team S*******. How original.

For the record (and since idea-theft hits me in a soft personal place) this program has been in place since the summer of 2008.
