CellMark and SMR to Sponsor 2014 Season
Mahopac, NY – For the fifth year in a row, CellMark Paper and Screaming Monkey Racing (SMR) will sponsor a variety of awards and cash incentives for F2000 Championship Series competitors over the course of the 2014 14-race season.
The prize list starts with the Hard Charger Award, sponsored by CellMark Paper, which is a season-long competition culminating in a $1,000 check for whoever advances the most positions between starting and finishing places over the course of the year.
Dave Weitzenhof took the honors in 2013, advancing an astounding 56 places over the season.
To be eligible, a driver must participate in 8 of 14 races with CellMark decals on his or her car, and be present at the Series banquet following the final race at Watkins Glen in October.
For the fourth straight year, the SMR Flying Monkey $500 Award will be given out at the Series banquet in October, which is awarded to someone who generally flies under the radar on race weekend but is a big part of the success of the Series. Recent winners include Lenore Panas, Dave Siegfried, John Dunbrook, Sarah Bonnier and Philip Jerominski.
"We are pleased to help support the F2000 Series, drivers and teams for the 5th straight year. As CellMark approaches our 30th Anniversary we salute the long term success of the series and the participants who compete each weekend. Hard work, commitment and sound strategy always pay off in both business and motorsports. Good luck to all in 2014,” noted CellMark Paper National Sales Director Rick Paul.
The SMR group will also continue its $250 “Sixth Place” Championship award, the first place in the points that has not paid a prize in the past, and also, coincidentally, the Championship finishing position of SMR driver Tim Paul in 2011 and 2012.
