Hunsinger Racing and Motorsports Marketing of Stevensville, PA, is an established racing team dedicated to promoting our sponsors. We will have one dirt late model racing a limited schedule at McKean County Raceway in East Smethport, PA, and a full schedule at Little Valley Speedway in Little Valley, NY. As well as competing in the United Late Model Series, Regional Racing Series, and other special events at various regional race tracks. We will also have three IMCA Modifieds competing in full schedules at Redline Raceway in Granville, PA., and a partial schedule at Skyline Raceway in Blodgett Mills NY.
Our team also participates in numerous motorsports attractions throughout the year in New York and Pennsylvania. Through these and other special events, we will have access to thousands of potential customers. It is our firm belief that Hunsinger Racing and Motorsports Marketing can offer a more cost effective promotional program than traditional means of advertising. The different types of promotional programs we offer will be detailed in the following sections of this package and can be customized to fit your specific business needs. As you read through the following pages we sincerely hope that you keep in mind that we are as dedicated to supporting our sponsors as we are to succeeding in the field of motorsports.As stated before, Hunsinger Racing and Motorsports Marketing is dedicated to supporting our sponsors. As a sponsor, this section is possibly the most important to you. We will now explore several key benefits that we can offer you.
The first is the use of on track exposure. Your name or logo will be prominently displayed, which means that every fan will see that you sponsor our team. Racing fans tend to be the most loyal group of consumers and prefer sponsoring businesses to non-sponsoring businesses. This alone will contribute to your customer base.
Another benefit of choosing us as a marketing partner is the off-track exposure. We haul our cars on open trailers, therefore, every time we travel, be it to a track, down the highway, at a gas station or a restaurant, we will be acting as a traveling billboard for your business.
We also offer exposure through car and trade shows, local carnivals and parades, as well as driver and car appearances. This means that we would advertise for you at special racing and non-racing events throughout New York and Pennsylvania. Many of these events will have thousands in attendance.
We will also come to your business, at your request, to promote your special events. This would bring many race fans to your business and show the fans and the general public your support of racing. The actual details of this can be tailored to fit your specific business needs and we welcome any ideas that you may have to make these events successful.
Another exciting benefit we offer is our merchandising program. Your business name and logo would appear on items such as racing apparel, hats, tee shirts, autograph cards, pictures, and posters, as well as various other items as appropriate. These items would be made available at races and special events whenever possible.
Through our own personal website, your name and logo would have the potential of reaching an unlimited number of people. We also plan to send press releases to various nationally known racing related news websites, which will include your name and logo.
The seventh benefit we offer is in the area of print advertising and media. Through press releases and various advertisements, we will continually remind the public of your business and your support of our team. As we have stated before, race fans are loyal customers.
We also offer trackside promotions through the use of autograph sessions, sponsor announcements, sponsor nights, and more depending on your needs. You and your employees would also be welcomed into the pits to contribute to the promoting of your business.
The last key benefit in this section is literature distribution. As a sponsor, your name and logo would appear on our business cards, autograph cards, team programs, and other miscellaneous handouts. These handouts would be distributed at all of the events we attend.
Driver: This season’s primary driver will be Ricky Hunsinger of Stevensville, PA. At age 43, this year will be his 23rd season as a team owner/driver. He became involved in racing as a young child helping his father, Russ, whom he would later race along side. At age 16, Ricky began his driving career in the street stock division in 1982 while living in Ft.Wainwright Alaska. The following year, Ricky won his first race at the Greater Fairbanks Raceway in Fairbanks, Alaska. In 1988, Ricky moved to the east coast where he brought his racing skills to Penn Can Speedway. That year he raced street stock and finished 10th in points. In 1989 he moved his talents to Five Mile Point Speedway where he continued racing street stock. During the 1990 season, Ricky decided to showcase his talents at multiple racetracks. He raced street stock at Dunn Hill Raceway, Skyline Raceway, Five Mile Point Speedway, and Penn Can Speedway. Ricky continued racing street stock at these raceways, as well as Thunder Mountain Speedway until the 1996 season. It was in that season that he made the decision to switch over to the Late Model Division. He raced at Thunder Mountain Speedway and finished in the “Top Ten” in every race he started that season. In 1997, he raced Pure Stock at Dunn Hill Raceway finishing 6th in points. He also raced Late Model at Skyline Raceway and Penn Can Speedway on a limited schedule. In 1998, Ricky finished the season 3rd in points at Dunn Hill Raceway where he competed in the Late Model Division. He followed his 3rd place finish with back-to-back 2nd place points finishes in 1999 and 2000 at Dunn Hill Raceway. In 2001, Ricky accomplished his pre-season goal by finishing 1st in points at Dunn Hill Raceway. In 2002 and 2003, Ricky called Ace High Speedway home where he finished 6th in points both years. This included 3 “Top Five” finishes. He also finished 10th in the ULMS Series at Freedom Raceway. In 2004, Ricky finished 2nd in points at Ace High Speedway. In 2005 Ricky raced in a very limited amount of races so that he could help out with getting his son Anthony’s driving career on track, while also preparing an IMCA Modified to be raced in the 2006 season. In 2006 Ricky finished 8th in points at Redline Raceway in the IMCA Modified division. While also finishing in 5th in points in the PA State point standings , and 9th in the Eastern Regional Rookie standings in the IMCA division.

Ricky’s future plans are to continue driving in the late model division with the intent to move up to one of the premier late model series, such as the World of Outlaws Latemodel Series or MACS tours, while also taking on a new challenge with the IMCA Modified division. It is Ricky’s goal to continue building and strengthening this team so that the Hunsinger family tradition of racing will continue with his children, AJ, age 18, Andrea, age 16 , Ryan, age 5 , Evan, age 3 and Nicholas age 2.

In 2005 A.J. finished in 5th place in points at Redline Raceway. In 2006 A.J. finished 12th in the points at Redline Raceway while only running a limited schedule. In 2007 A.J. split his time between running the mini stock and getting his feet wet running an IMCA modified, where he finished 16th in points while running part time.
His future plans are to continue racing in the IMCA Modified division through the 2009 season at Redline Raceway, with hopes of eventually joining his father in the Late Model division.
3rd Driver: Russ Hunsinger, Ricky Hunsinger’s father will be coming out of retirement to run a third IMCA modified to make it three generations of Hunsinger’s on the track at the same.
