STOUFFVILLE, ON- Canada’s industry leader in safety gear, race apparel and corporate wear will offer a unique opportunity to a trio of Mini Stock competitors this summer, with the launch of the first ever nationwide ‘Search For Speed’ contest.
The contest will be open to drivers across the nation, split into three regions: West (British Columbia, Albert, Saskatchewan and Manitoba), Central (Ontario) and East (Quebec & The Maritimes).
“We wanted to design a contest centered around the drivers that best represent the grassroots level of our sport”, explains Fast Eddie co-founder Jamie Hakonson. “This contest is open to every one of these drivers across Canada. Dirt or Asphalt. They’re the lifeblood of our sport, and we’re going to give three of them the chance to join our team”.
The contest will launch on April 24th, and applicants will have two weeks to enter, with 5 drivers selected from each region to advance to the final round of voting.
“We’ll be looking for the racers to tell us a little bit about themselves, their racing career and what would make them a good fit for our team”, says Hakonson. “Get creative. We’re looking for the 5 drivers from each region that stand out from all the rest”.
All 15 finalists will receive a Fast Eddie apparel bundle and graphics package, with the 3 regional champions receiving a custom Fast Eddie Racewear ‘Crew Shirt’ and a $500 sponsorship for the 2014 season.
Applicants are encouraged to follow Fast Eddie on Twitter @WearFastEddie for further updates on the inaugural Search For Speed contest. The opening day of registration will coincide with the launch of the brand new www.FastEddieRacewear.com on April 24th. Registration will close on May 8th, with each region’s 5 finalists announced on May 12th.
