Does anyone in here have any good pointers on how to get good sponsors? Do you have an outline of a proposal that someone could fill in the blanks and pass out? Do you have any good do's and don'ts? Any funny sponsor stories?

first and foremost DONT CALL THEM SPONSORS!!
They are advertisement clients They do not give you money you earn it. Remember it is all you can do for them not just what they can do for you. Good luck BObby

Good points B4... got any more?
I am planning to offer "advertisers" $1000 billboard at the track/ $1000 in tickets with their company name on them/ Fly their banner in our pit area/ Attend community events, parades, car shows, charity benefits etc.. for $3000 sponsorship
Oh.. and they get their Company Name on the Hood.
I have an outline but I just wanted to know what other have found to be successful.
Any other ideas?

give numbers how many people will see it at the track on the way to the track at the shows etc. Use truthful numbers a little research adn you can tell truthful numbers to all of this. I also give my sponsors hats and pictures and a few various painting of my car (sister is an artist)

Remember it makes racing more of a commitment.
Give referances and history. Good luck BObby
