Let me add this.

If you race local or national series & footin the bills all by yourself, if your looking some support, better capture those sponcers attention any way you can.

Best take notice boys cause I been out here a bunch of years & seen a bunch happen.

Boys do the pink thang cause they are a dime a dozen & girls, well they gona get attention anyways, specially if they got on a tight pair of racing pants & a tube top walking through the pits ;) :eek: :p
Ya'll git your toungs back in you mouth & quit slobering.

If everything goes well & 2Rs little girl keeps racing, boooooy I cant wait to hear what hes got to say cause I done been there :p .

This one Banshee engine builder called Passion Racing painted their jugs purple on their race bikes. People started asking whos purple engines were spanking everyone. Good way to get people to remember you.

oh ,..we/she has the attn of quite few riders & sponsors already but they can only help in limitied ways ...& some try to scam you !
more attn ..nothing like seeing the boy racers dads & moms :D watching a 50 lb girl whip up on or running with there boys that have been racing MX for a couple years ..can't tell ya how many times I was asked "where did she come from ?"..." her first year ???"..I even heard 1 dad tell his boy after she beat him 8 motos straight that he doesnt deserve to get a trophy if he cant beat that girl ! :huh:
sponsors..they love female riders!!!
when a few saw she raced 32 MX events & a total of over 50 races this past year (2 classes per event usually) & more than 1/2 of her finishes were 1st place finishes .. they wanted her ..we are just now contacting more sponsors & picking who is good for us
her '07 resume leaves nothing to be desired ,it which also includes 2 class track championships , a 2nd place track championships & 2nd in district 6 for overall points in the Ultimate MX series ...
& now getting into the mini quads & still continuing to race bikes also ..

we know the costs ..
I expect this year to top the roughly 16k we put out to race her in '07 racing her again in '08 ....the season hasnt even begun & we are approaching 9k already ...
(new trailer , new bike , 2 quads etc etc)
you guys that think kids racing is not a big deal... better go look again
theres only 1 difference ...the kids are younger ,..thats it !

"well sponsorship healps a great deal. Almost impossible to go without.."

I disagree we did all the above w/o any help from anyone ..soon as 1 of them pays even 1/4 of fuel costs just to get to the tracks ...then I will agree !!

in my experiences with powdercoat over the years of doing R/ ATV parts .. I found Glossy Black to be the very most durable of all colors available .. probably because the co.'s that produce it realize Black is used alot for many varied applications ,so they are constantly refining the formula for performance & durability
