Mini grand prix car
Each registered race team/sponsor is required to purchase an official-styled NASCAR car for $2,000 in order to participate in the race. The car is yours to keep. Use it however you wish and bring it back to Race for a Reason each year. Customize your car with your choice of wrap (donated by FASTSIGNS). Additionally, each team receives one racing helmet. Due to liability reasons, the purchase must be separate from any other sponsorship.
