[12/02/2002] NMRA Introduces First Ever Pro 5.0 Entrant Support Program


After an extensive evaluation of its NMRA Pro 5.0 drag racing class, ProMedia Events has announced today that it will create an unprecedented Entrant Support Program in an effort to increase class participation in this top-tier category. In addition, the NMRA Ford Drag Racing Series administration is currently working to develop a five-year long-term strategic plan for the Pro 5.0 class direction that will build a firm foundation for the class.

"The NMRA is the preeminent street legal drag racing series in America," ProMedia''s Charlie Harmon states, "and we realize that it is critical for the NMRA and Ford drag racing to grow this headlining class. This program is designed to retain current racing teams and attract new participants in the NMRA Pro 5.0 class in 2003 and beyond."

Beginning with the 2003 racing season, the NMRA Pro 5.0 Entrant Support Program affirms NMRA''s commitment to invest in its racing teams and to provide them increased guaranteed exposure and marketing opportunities.

NMRA''s Entrant Support Program, which is limited to 16 teams, is available to current Pro 5.0 racers as well as new entrants. Pro 5.0 competitors will be eligible for the program by committing to attend at least six of eight NMRA 2003 national events. The program is provided at no charge to the entrants, although entry fees are required to be pre-paid for the year. The goal of this program is to help Pro 5.0 teams increase marketability and help them increase the value of their investment and lower the cost structure of competing in this class.

Complete details of the NMRA Pro 5.0 Entrant Support Program are included below. Competitors interested in more information on the NMRA Pro 5.0 program should contact ProMedia Event Division Director Charlie Harmon at charmon@promediapub.com

A: Exposure / Marketing Opportunities (100% Guaranteed)

1) Television Interview / Car Feature Opportunity: NMRA will guarantee to each Pro 5.0 competitor a minimum of one nationally broadcast television interview on a cable network. For the 2003 season the NMRA television coverage will be aired on ESPN-2 cable television reaching over 85 million households in the United States. During this interview/team profile the driver will have the opportunity to discuss the team''s performance and mention sponsors. During this profile the Pro 5.0 vehicle will be shown.

2) Radio Interview Opportunity: NMRA will guarantee to each Pro 5.0 competitor a minimum of two radio interviews in two different regional markets in the United States.

During these radio interviews typically the competitor will be asked to talk about the upcoming NMRA event, the Pro 5.0 team/profile, and be permitted to mention associated sponsors. Although the radio station''s reach and rankings can vary from market to market, NMRA generally buys top-tier radio stations in each region fitting the desirable male 18-49 demographic.

3) Print Advertising: NMRA will provide one full-color full-page, or two full-color half-page print advertisements at no cost to the entrant in the Race Pages, the NMRA publication, during the race season, for the Pro 5.0 team to promote its sponsorship relationships, enhance sponsorship recognition, and provide a team profile to interested fans.
