NYPA ANNOUNCES TWO NEW SPONSORS FOR 2017
The NYPA Midget Association is proud to announce the two additional sponsorship commitments from valued partners for the 2017 season. Returning sponsor Lias Tire Racing Division has signed on for a full season agreement to support the 2017 points fund and premier Pennsylvania auto services Bonnell’s Auto is sponsoring the NYPA Midget Association’s scheduled clash at Lake Erie Speedway, naming it the Bonnell 20.
Lias Tire Racing Division is the official American Racer tire distributor for the northeast region. Their hands on involvement with TQ midget racing in Pennsylvania and New York means not only points fund support for NYPA but also high quality tires and savings for racers. As one of the largest American Racer distributors in the country, Lias Tire Racing Division is able to keep a large inventory on hand making it easy and convenient for racers to get what they need.
“Lias Tire Racing Division worked closely with NYPA Midget Association to develop a harder, more durable compound for our racers,” said Charlie DiRosa the NYPA series director.
The harder compound has proved cost effective as they come in at a lower price point and last much longer than the previous tire. The new compound is so popular that other series have expressed interest in making the switch. The NYPA Midget Association thanks Lias Tire for making their commitment to the series and to growing short track auto racing in the northeast.
The Bonnell 20 will take place on Saturday June 10th at Lake Erie Speedway in conjunction with the Race of Champions asphalt modified tour. Bonnell Collision owner Scott Bonnell is an accomplished sprint car driver who left the driver’s seat after a vicious crash at Little Valley Speedway resulted in broken vertebrae. Bonnell is unwilling to leave racing altogether and continues to support the racing community through sponsorships.
