Imagine a sponsorship promotion that benefits both race teams and a legendary museum. This concept has become a reality thanks to Richard and Jennifer Marshall from Priority Aviation. The company will be offering a $20,000 Knoxville Nationals sponsorship to the driver or team who acquires the most donations through membership and other avenues for the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum by July 31, 2019.
“We’re trying to help get the word out that the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum still needs help paying for the construction on the Bryan Clauson Suite Tower,” said Richard Marshall, owner of Priority Aviation. “We also wanted to possibly help bring another race team to the 59th Annual Knoxville Nationals that maybe wouldn’t make the trip to Knoxville without the extra $20,000 in their pocket to help cover expenses.
“I think it will also be exciting to see the competition among the drivers and their fan bases. I think we’ll see a lot of social media hype and possibly some good-natured competition between the teams. The teams could also get businesses in their area to get behind their effort with donations. I feel the winner may not just be the one with the most loyal fan base, but the one who gets most creative!”
Richard Marshall went on to further talk about the passion that inspired the contest.
“We decided to have Priority Aviation offer a $20,000 Knoxville Nationals sponsorship to the driver or race team that acquires the most donations to the museum between now and July 31,” Marshall continued. “With National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum memberships starting at only $25 each, we thought that this would be a good way to help both the museum pay for some of the construction cost on the Bryan Clauson Suite Tower, and also help a team at this year’s Knoxville Nationals.”
For the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame, the contest provides a great avenue for the historic venue to raise funds.
“We can’t thank Richard and Jennifer Marshall enough for thinking up this $20,000 Knoxville Nationals Sponsorship program,” says Bob Baker, executive director of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame & Museum. “Richard and Jennifer, through Priority Aviation, know the importance of getting the Bryan Clauson Suite Tower construction paid for, and their generosity in helping both our museum and in trying to help a race team at this year’s Knoxville Nationals, is just one way that they are always thinking about our sport.”
