Champion Auto Parts is currently running THE SEARCH FOR A CHAMPION contest from now through March 25th 2012. Over 340 racers of all kinds submitted 2 min videos describing themselves and showcasing some of their racing as they vie for the $50,000 Grand Prize. The entry list was finalized on Dec 31st and the contest has now entered the voting stage kind of like American Idol.

Our team, Epic Ventures Motorsports Group, submitted a video for ROC Asphalt Modified Series driver Terry Cheetham and we are asking modified fans to help not only our team but to shed some light on our beloved class. Most of the asphalt category entries are drag racing, road racing, late model or midgets/microds. With some good old fashioned grass roots backing (no cost involved) there is an opportunity to get the attention of fans all across the racing spectrum and at least one large corporate sponsor in particular.

As we may not be known to some of you, I created a brief YouTube video describing why I decided to team up with and give my support to Terry over the past 6 years.

Having run a limited ROC schedule for a few years we have managed to finish in the top 10 in our last three Oswego ROC 200 events, and like any race team, we are always striving to raise our performance level even further. Each of us knows that financial resources are a big part of that equation. Without some additional assistance with the daily voting (or as often as you are willing to devote time) our shot at victory is a long shot. I have been a fan of modifieds since the mid 60's and think it would be outstanding if we could bring some additional notoriety to modified racing by at least making it to the final cut. Thank you for your view and as there are 4 weeks to go, I will add some notes about our history that we hope you find interesting. Again, thanks -Tom Fecteau, owner EVMS
