    I was just thinking how nice it would be if I got free or heavily discounted stuff from companies sponsering my truck. Anyone on here have sponsers? What companies? Anyone want to sponser me? PLEASE! I'll put your stickers all over my truck. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    The only sponsers that I have been able to get are local salvage yards or parts stores. Thats only because I mud race regularly. None of its cash. Its mostly small parts but it can add up to several hundered dollars over the course of the season. If it was a pure mud machine I could do better.

    Right now I just have a part time job and I'm going to school at night. Two more semesters and I'll have my teaching credential and finding a teaching job should be no problem with a Math degree. I cant wait until those paychecks start coming in!!

    Sluggo, that's called a business expence isn't? A lot of my parts go on the company CC too. And my wife reacts the same way.

    I've kinda got one, kinda. Getting sponsors is gonna be next to impossible unless you
    A) compete in some kind of event that will get exposure or
    B) run a website that will get you and their product exposed.

    Both are expensive and hard to get. Mine is not really a sponsorship, more like a little testing help in the initial stages of a product.

    Maybe I could convince some companies that if they give me parts, then I will start competing once my truck is built right. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
