RACING ELECTRONICS ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH UARA-STARS SERIES
Racing Electronics Now the Official Communications Supplier of UARA
Sometimes good things come to those that wait. Today, Racing Electronics announced they have stepped up their program with one of the strongest touring divisions in the Southeast, the UARA-STARS Series. After a couple of years of unofficial involvement, Racing Electronics and the UARA Series have formed a three-year partnership that will call for Racing Electronics to be the “Official Communications Supplier of UARA.”
There has been plenty of close racing in UARA over the past few seasons.
The partnership comes on the heels of what was one of the Late Model Stock Car Series’ strongest seasons and on the eve of several 2007 announcements, which includes a strong 16-race schedule.
“We are just really excited to be a part of the UARA-Stars Series,” said Racing Electronics Short Track Representative Ron Rater. “This really helps us further our standing in the short track world, and that is something that Racing Electronics is interested in doing more of. The UARA Series is growing and getting stronger every year, and the 2007 season looks to be one of their biggest years yet. UARA is just the type of
series that Racing Electronics is looking at becoming a bigger part of, and we couldn’t be any happier.”
The series, based in Hendersonville, North Carolina, will feature two races, including the season-finale, at Concord Motorsport Park in Concord, North Carolina, home of Racing Electronics World Headquarters. The series will also run twice at the legendary high-banked, half-mile Bristol Motor Speedway (TN).
“I’m just glad to have a company like Racing Electronics become a part of the UARA Series,” said UARA’s Kerry Bodenhamer. “They offer some quality services and have always been a big supporter of ours. Now, they are officially a part of our series. Ron has provided great service to our competitors and Bruce (Silver, President/CEO of Racing Electronics) has always been a big supporter, so this is just a perfect match. They see a lot of potential in us, and I think it can be a win-win for both companies.
“In addition to having Racing Electronics come on board, we are getting our 2007 scheduled lined up with some great racetracks in addition to some new tracks, including ending the racing season at Concord and having two races at Bristol Motor Speedway. We’ve got Ace Speedway that has come on board as well. That should all be a good opportunity for Racing Electronics to market in some of those areas as well.”
In addition to being at the races and working directly with series officials and teams, Racing Electronics will also step up their contingency program with UARA. The
series will award a “Second To None” $50 product certificate to the second-place finisher in each event. The series will also award a brand new two-way headset at the banquet at the end of the year.
“We are going to be supplying radios for the series and officials to communicate all year long,” added Rater. “The officials will also have the ability to talk with drivers during the race on a one-to-one basis. It’s a big safety advantage, because they can get on the radio with a specific team if they need to come into the pits to make repairs to their cars. That is the kind of thing that RE likes to bring to the series.”
Racing Electronics manufactures and supplies a complete line of race communication products and accessories and has been serving the professional drivers and pit crews, as well as the race fan, for more than 18 years.
Racing Electronics offers customers a free, full-size, full-color, 24-page catalog (either by mail or by download off its website, www.racingelectronics.com) where they can choose from a variety of two-way radios, scanners, headphones and headsets, as well as a complete selection of accessories. RE also offers an online Frequency Membership where you can get up-to-date listings of current races and associated scanner frequencies. In addition to two stores in Concord, NC, and Pleasantville, NJ, Racing Electronics has mobile offices at all Nextel Cup, Busch and Craftsman Truck Series events, along with all NHRA races. RE also attends many ARCA, IRL, Whelen Modified Tour, PASS and UARA races, along with many other series events throughout the season.
