MARS WELCOMES VEIT & VONCO ON BOARD FOR 2020!

(November 13, 2019) With the start of the 2020 racing season less than two months away, Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer Jimmy Mars excitedly announced today the addition of two new primary marketing partners! Both Veit Specialty Contracting & Waste Management and Vonco Waste Management Campus have inked multi-year deals to align themselves directly with Mars Racing for 2020 and beyond. The new partnership with these two great companies will afford Jimmy the opportunity to enter additional national events, while also allowing him the flexibility to continue to pick and choose his racing schedule. With Veit and Vonco on board, the look of Jimmy's traditionally white racecar will change to Veit's corporate colors, but the 47-year-old racer welcomes the change of color scheme heading into the new decade.

"I think I can speak for everyone at Mars Racing that we are very excited about the partnership with Veit and Vonco, along with the new colors," exclaimed the Menomonie, Wisconsin driver earlier today. "They are two terrific companies that have supported Dirt Late Model racing for a long, long time with Jeff Wildung. Their new involvement with our program will allow us to do some different things and race at more of a national level, while still being able to enter all of the big events across the Upper Midwest. I have to thank Vaughn and Kelly Veit, Mitch Sumstad, and everyone at Veit and Vonco for their support. Mars Racing looks forward to representing them and all of our other great sponsors in first-class fashion both on and off the racetrack in 2020 and in future years!" | press release
