Concord, NC — World Racing Group and 4D Media, Inc., announced today that MyRaceLife.com will be the presenting sponsor of the inaugural UMP DIRTcar Roundup at I-55 Raceway.
The four-day event dubbed the “Party in Pevely” by NASCAR Sprint Cup driver and track owner Ken Schrader will feature all eight divisions of UMP DIRTcar Racing during the course of the Oct. 15-18 extravaganza in the St. Louis suburb.
“It’s easy to see that UMP DIRTcar Racing is the heart of Grassroots racing and MyRaceLife.com aims to provide those Grassroots fans and competitors a place on the Internet to connect and share thoughts, pictures and videos,” said Thomas N. Carter, CEO of 4D Media. “MyRaceLife.com is Built By Racers and Driven By Fans(TM), just like DIRTcar Racing, which makes our partnership a perfect fit.”
The UMP DIRTcar Roundup By MyRaceLife.com will put each of the sanctioning body’s eight divisions — UMP DIRTcar Late Models, Open Wheel Modifieds, Pro Late Models, Sportsman, Limited Modifieds, Street Stocks, Factory Stocks and 4-Cylinders — in the spotlight over four days.
“There are more than 120 member tracks, 5,000 competitors and millions of fans in DIRTcar Racing, and it makes sense to partner with MyRaceLife.com on our biggest event of the year,” said World Racing Group Chief Marketing Officer Ben Geisler. “MyRaceLife.com gives competitors, fans and track operators an easy way to keep in touch with each other, which only compliments what we are doing with our all new DIRTcar.com site and makes our entire community stronger.”
