Join The Team

Needless to say, drag racing is an expensive proposition. Aside from the personal funds used to make MDJ Racing a reality, it requires help from outside. It is the purpose of MDJ Racing not only to create a drag racing team, but also to foster an extended family of racing and art enthusiasts. Our hope is that your support will make possible something that will supersede the limited contemporary understanding of art, as well as the understanding of automobile racing. Our intention is to explore ideas of Faith through the multiple meaning of performance.

Sponsorship opportunities are below. Please keep in mind that the car will be installed as sculpture after it has been raced for the minimum of one season, or until it is crashed or rendered mechanically defunct. The sponsor at each level will have representation on the car or on team clothing for the life of the car both on the track and as a sculpture. As the car will be shown as sculpture either in its whole or partial form in the event of crash or fire, your advertising dollar is money well spent. The sculpture will live on forever thus making your investment less than a penny a day, or a year for that matter. Also, your business or enterprise will have exposure within two disparate arenas; namely the racetrack and the museum or gallery.

All of the following sponsors will receive "The Men and Women of MDJ Racing" limited edition calendar 2016.
