MADERACALIFORNIA (March 7, 2018) – Alamo, CA-based RPM Mortgage, a leading private mortgage lender, continues as the primary sponsor of the Pro Late Model division at Madera Speedway.  The MAVTV-televised nine race series has emerged as one of the premier weekly track stock car series in the nation, averaging nearly 30 entrants per race.  The partnership between RPM Mortgage and Madera Speedway began in 2017 with both the lending company and the one-third mile asphalt oval enjoying great success as a result.

2018 is poised to be the strongest season of stock car action in the 47 year history of the Madera Fairgrounds institution.  This Saturday’s 100 lap, $5000 to win season opener sets off a nine race campaign of RPM Mortgage Pro Late Model races that concludes with the “Nut Up Short Track Shootout” for $10,000 to win on October 6.

Drivers from across the Western United States have flocked to Madera to compete in the unique series that features a strong payout thanks to a great sponsor base.  Six of the nine races pay $2000 to win, along with $5,000 to win races on March 10 and July 28, and the $10,000 Short Track Shootout.

RPM Mortgage’s involvement has immediately raised the profile of the series, explains promoter Kenny Shepherd.

“RPM Mortgage has given us with the tools we need to provide national television time to very talented drivers that would have most likely never had this opportunity,” Shepherd said.  “We know in racing that our fans reward the brands that keep their sport healthy, and RPM Mortgage is the number one reason our fans get to enjoy our great racing action. I personally have never worked with a more professional company and I greatly appreciate their support of our sport.”

“We are excited to sponsor the Pro Late Model Series at Madera Speedway for the second year in a row,” said Rob Hirt, CEO of RPM Mortgage. “Just like watching these talented drivers speed down the track, we get a thrill from seeing our customers achieve their goals through hard work and dedication. As we gear up for another racing season, we remain committed to supporting racing fans in their pursuit of crossing the finish line into homeownership.”

Tickets for Saturday’s event are value priced at just $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and military, $7 for youth ages 6-12, and kids five and under are free!
