INAUGURAL FUNDING CAMPAIGNS INCLUDE 45TH ANNUAL OKTOBERFEST RACE WEEKEND AT LACROSSE SPEEDWAY
West Salem, WI (September 2, 2014) – The Short Track Racing Network — ShortTracks.us, a company dedicated to the promotion of short track racing in the United States, has launched FundMyRacing.com, a tool for tracks, drivers and series to crowdsource event sponsorship.
Much like other crowdsourcing sites, FundMyRacing.com campaigns allow for different levels of support, setup by the track or driver. Campaign creators can choose how much, or little, they want to receive per donation and assign rewards based on the levels they set.
We have simplified the process, allowing tracks to continue to work on promoting their event and not get bogged down collecting donations or keeping track of lap awards. We do all of the work, providing a complete list and money at the end of the campaign.
“Our experience and know-how, combined with the need for new avenues of sponsorship revenue, has created an opportunity for us to help short track racing in a way we haven’t been able to before,” stated ShortTracks.us Founder, Scott Lofquist. “We give fans an easy, direct way to support their favorite events, through lap awards and driver sponsorships.”
Campaigns launching with FundMyRacing.com are lap awards for the ‘Trickle 99’ and ARCA Midwest Tour ‘Oktoberfest 200’ during the 45th Annual Oktoberfest Race Weekend at LaCrosse Speedway in West Salem, Wisconsin.
“This is a great program that allows everyone in the industry to give back to the teams,” stated Oktoberfest Race Weekend Promoter, Gregg McKarns.
ShortTracks.us known industry wide as a leader in short track marketing and design, will continue to unveil new short track related websites into the Fall of 2014. A slate of additional site launches will be announced in the coming weeks.
