Performance Metals, Inc. Announces 2009 Open Wheel Sponsorships
(1-22-09) Performance Metals, Inc (PMI) has announced its list of Marketing Partnerships for the 2009 racing season. The Ohio based distributor of specialty metals will become a supporting sponsor of the newly formed "F.A.S.T." (Fremont/Attica Sprint Title) organization, which was recently launched to organize a joint point fund for the 410 sprint car class competing at Fremont Speedway and Attica Raceway Park in Ohio. Joe Darmofal, President of PMI, also announced Associate / Product Sponsorships of the newly formed CH Motorsports #83 410 sprint car team with Tim Shaffer at the wheel as well as the # 4K sprinter of second generation 410 sprint car driver Kody Kinser of Bloomington, Indiana, and area 305 sprint car driver Chad Wilson of Toledo, Ohio.
Darmofal indicated that PMI has sponsored several cars since beginning operations in 2002, but until now has done so on a low-key basis. "We decided to step into the spotlight and publicize our support of open wheel racing, from which we derive a significant portion of our sales revenue," Darmofal noted, adding that "we want the various chassis and component manufacturers to realize that we are true supporters of, and participants in, motorsports activities as opposed to those whose participation is limited to exhibiting at trade shows."
PMI specializes in circle track and drag racing applications, and its products include 4130 aircraft tubing, stainless polished tubing, and a wide range of aluminum products. Product information can be obtained by calling the company’s toll free number at 1-866-2-METALS.
