Corporate Support Is New to NASCAR Circles; Ready For First Race With Angela
MOORESVILLE, NC, October 5, 2011 – To say that Angela Cope’s No. 23 Chevrolet will sport a variety of sponsorship partners this weekend at Kansas Speedway’s Nationwide Series race is an understatement, but what is even more interesting are the unique kinds of corporate support she is receiving, many new to the sport of NASCAR.
The categories are many and include a variety of partners, as Angela -a rookie in the Nationwide Series – will make her third start of the 2011 season. Her colorful car will not be short of logos, that is for sure.
The two primary sponsors this weekend (as well as the Charlotte Nationwide Series race the following week) include Millennium Spa/Salon Software, a leader in management software in the beauty industry, and BLK Beverages, a pure natural spring water infused with a proprietary blend of Fulvic Acid. It’s a new and one of a kind product in the beverage marketplace.
So, why would a software company get involved in NASCAR and with Angela Cope, niece of 1990 Daytona 500 Champion Derrike Cope and twin sister to Amber, also a noted driver?
“”I am excited about the opportunity to support Angela and Amber Cope as they race towards their dreams in the NASCAR Nationwide Series,” said Millennium Founder and CEO John Harms. “Not only are they professional race car drivers but they are beauty industry professionals that have used Millennium Software for years. The Cope Twins share the values, passion, and the drive that has consistently earned Millennium Software top honors in this amazing industry.”
In addition to the primary sponsors, Angela’s car will also have an array of distinctive associate partners on display on her car. That list is just as impressive and includes the likes of LuichinyR Boots, Matrix System Automotive Finishes, Horizon Sports Management, Xinergy Coal Mining, and OdysseyR Batteries by EnerSysR.
“It means so much to us that so many companies believe in us as we chase our dream to be successful race car drivers,” said Angela, who along with Amber, made history last October at Martinsville in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck race by becoming the first twins to ever race against each other in one of NASCAR’s top three divisions. Both also made history in May when both competed in the Nationwide Series race at Iowa.
“I am a rookie in the Nationwide Series so to have this variety of support is amazing. What makes it different, too, is that our partners are basically new to the sport so we are reaching areas that hadn’t been tapped into before. That makes us feel good that we are helping pave the way for new corporate support in our sport. Can’t wait to get to Kansas as well as Charlotte,” added the 28-year-old from Puyallup, Washington.
Angela finished 28th at Iowa, then showed improvement on that result at Loudon, NH, with a solid 25th-place effort. She just barely missed the race in Chicago.
Angela’s resume includes countless go-cart victories and multiple championships. Since moving east she has competed in super late models, ARCA, as well as the races in NASCAR’s Truck Series and Nationwide Series.
Two practices are set for Friday for the Kansas Lottery 300. Qualifying for the event is at 9:05 am Saturday, while the green flag is set later in the day at 3:30 p.m. EST.
Angela, along with Amber, will have an autograph signing after the race Saturday, at 7 p.m. at Danny’s Bar & Grill, located at 10940 Parallel Pkwy. Suite Q, in Kansas City, KS. The Cope Twins would like to thank Arthur Bryant’s, the legendary King of Ribs (http://www.arthurbryantsbbq.com) located at 1702 Village West Parkway, K.C., for providing lunch at the track to the team and its sponsors.
