Hope, Hammock partner with Mohegan Sun Racing for 2010
Monday, January 11, 2010
NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle rider David Hope has signed a major sponsorship agreement with Brian Bozsum and Mohegan Sun Racing for the full 2010 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series season.
“The talks of a partnership with Hope and Hammock started a few weeks ago after coming to the realization that we would not be able to run with Matt Guidera until Indy of this year due to the unforeseen circumstances that occurred last year,” said Bozsum. “It’s truly an unfortunate situation to be involved with, considering how successful the team was and the friendships that we all forged during the past couple of years."
Bozsum continued, “Mohegan Sun Racing wants to have a continued presence in the NHRA, and David Hope and John Hammock will be able to provide that. My wife and I look forward to the 2010 season with much enthusiasm, and we’re very proud to be associated with David and John. We’ve known John Hammock, Vroom team owner, since we hit the NHRA in 2005 and have always considered him a very good friend. "We’re looking forward to starting the same relationship with David and his family. David seems to have such a great presence at the track and has done some great things to bring awareness to the struggles with breast cancer. Good things happen to good people, and this is a great example of it.
“We’re looking forward to a long-term and mutually beneficial relationship that will not only pay significant dividends on the racetrack but also make the Mohegan Sun/Vroom Racing team one of the top teams in 2010." Hope will debut the Mohegan Sun/Vroom Racing Buell March 11-14 at the 41st annual NHRA Gatornationals season opener for the Pro Stock Motorcycles in Gainesville.
Situated on 240 acres along the Thames River in scenic southeastern Connecticut, Mohegan Sun, owned by the Mohegan Tribe, is one of the largest and most distinctive and spectacular entertainment, gaming, shopping, and meeting destinations in the United States.
