Look at all of these sponsors!!!
The generous sponsors for "Ladies First" have committed to a long list of donations totaling nearly $5000.00. “Our sponsors have been fantastic! They truly believe in our mission to promote women in this sport, and see the benefits of exposing their brands to this unique and valuable audience. In a male-dominated sport, our sponsors are true visionaries…they recognize the enormous financial potential of the female market”, said Christi Midlam, Director of Sportbike Track Girl. Sportbike Track Time is donating a free track day and also a free spot to its exclusive “Pro School”. All items will be raffled to participants present for the event, male or female.
Some of the most notable donations include one enrollment to Jason DiSalvo’s Speed Academy, worth $895. “Jason DiSalvo was one of our most progressive sponsors. He immediately recognized the tremendous marketing potential of a partnership with ST Girl, and stepped up early to be a part of our unique event” said Richard Harris, Owner of Sportbike Track Girl/Sportbike Track Time. In addition, Rich Oliver has donated two spots to “Rich Oliver’s Mystery School” in which students ride flat track on 125’s to learn sliding and braking drills, with an estimated value of nearly $1,200.00
Fox Powersports of Michigan has committed to raffling gift certificates valued at $800. 00.
Sportbike Track Gear (sportbiketrackgear.com) will also be a major contributor with over $300 worth of raffle prizes.

“Our intent is not to segregate, but rather to incorporate women into a male-dominated sport. ‘Ladie’s First’ offers women the opportunity to ride the track without the fears, insecurities and possible barriers they might normally find intimidating during a normal track day. Our sponsors this year are proving their dedication to this fantastic demographic and by contributing to ‘Ladies First’, they are outwardly supporting these progressive women”, said Christi Midlam, Director of Sportbike Track Girl.
“Ladies First” will be followed by regular track days on Saturday and Sunday, open to all riders. The unique format of the event will enable Sportbike Track Time’s male customers to peruse vendors, have suspension and tire service completed on Friday, and yet still ride a normal track weekend Saturday and Sunday.
