Wheatland, Missouri - The Lucas Oil MLRA dirt late model series has signed contingency sponsorship agreements with Chix Gear, GRT Race Cars and Hooker Harness for the 2014 season.

Chix Gear, a Des Moines, Iowa, company that produces apparel for women designed for wearing at the racetrack, will award a $25 certificate to drivers who finish in seventh place in the main event at every MLRA race.

"Seven is my wife's (Aubry Baldwin) favorite number," Chix Gear co-owner Brad Baldwin said. "She's the designer, does all the work behind everything we produce. It's exclusively for women. My wife got the idea going to the races with me and couldn't find anything for herself. She has a background in graphic design. We started the business two and a half years ago and we've been growing. We decided to get into something as far as a traveling series and we think (MLRA Series Director) Dan (Robinson) does a terrific job."

GRT Race Cars, a Greenbrier, Ark.-based builder of dirt late model and open wheel modified chassis, will award heat race winners a $50 discount off a purchase of $250 or more at all MLRA events.

"GRT has been involved with the MLRA series for a long time and we have won the championship multiple years," owner Joe Garrison said. "We're planning to run it full time in 2014 with our house car (driven by Jeremy Payne of Springfield, Mo.). We're excited to be a part of the series full time this year and offer the contingency awards to drivers running the series. Our hopes are that the award will help the drivers with parts purchases throughout the year." For the complete line of GRT Race Cars and parts, visit www.TeamGRT.com.

Hooker Harness designs and manufactures custom seat belts and shoulder harnesses for racing and the aviation industry. The Freeport, Ill.-based company began producing harnesses for racing in 2000 after starting in aviation in 1972. Its specific award for 2014 has not been determined.

"We've been slowly doing different series and doing more in late models," Hooker Harness partner Scott McPhillips said. "With the Lucas (Oil) connection, the MLRA seemed like a good fit for us." Click www.HookerHarness.com for more information.

The MLRA contingency sponsorships provided by Chix Gear, GRT Race Cars and Hooker Harness will help support teams and drivers during 2014.

"We're very pleased that Chix Gear, GRT Race Cars and Hooker Harness have become contingency sponsors of the MLRA," Robinson said. "They make a solid contribution to our series."
