It was my son's racing team. He had to sell everything due to lack of sponsorship. The car was a Camaro (the shell) and had a Pratt & Miller Chassis and a CRD Engine (650 HP) made by Bob Cronin. The car cost over $230,000 plus all the other expenses, ie trailer, hauler, race expenses, etc. We only raced the one year in season 2000 in the Trans Am Series. All the races were televised and the series had some very good drivers. In the past drivers such as Richard Petty and Mark Donohue drove some in the series.SFG75 said:muggle-How much money do you thinki you and your wife hav poured into that car? I'd hate to guess. Do you have sponsorship of any kind? I would imagine that might make it easier, but I don't see any gaudy advertisements on her car like the NASCAR drivers have.
I was the Marketing Manager but ran into a brick wall as we found it difficult to get sponorship for a female driver....most females had the same problem years ago and even today to a great extent. Companies still think it is a man's sport. Don't get me started on that.
Nascar teams get anywhere from $12 million to $20 million for a primary sponsorship (hood and trunk) and then they pick-up big bucks from associate sponsors (trunk approx. $500,000 to $2 million, lower rear qtr panel $400,000 to $1.5 million, and on and on).
