Along with this partnership, many other members of the racing community have increased their role in keeping this race alive during challenging times.

“It's been such a difficult year for so many people and businesses, so I felt bad for even asking for sponsorship this year to be honest" stated race promotor Vince Laboon. "But I felt we all needed something to look forward to with the shortened racing season, and I wanted to keep this race alive for my Dad. Everyone has been unbelievable, and I sincerely appreciate every single sponsor."
