Neverlift Apparel and Race One to sponsor defending TORC Champion
New London, Wis. (March 24, 2014) –Neverlift Apparel and Race One are proud to announce a joint venture to sponsor defending Pro Light Champion, Keegan Kincaid in TORC: The Off-Road Championship. Following the path of the Rockstar Energy and Makita brands, Neverlift Apparel and Race One will work in unison to sponsor select teams in off-road racing.
“To be on board with a driver of Keegan’s caliber is an honor for us at Race One. Keegan and the rest of Kincaid Motorsports have been involved in off-road for years and their success is well documented. Keegan’s racing career is just getting started and we look forward to his continued success as he looks to defend his title,” said Chris Hord, the founder of Race One.
Kincaid’s selection as the first sponsored athlete in the joint venture was an easy decision. The 24 year-old racer from Crandon, Wis., comes from a family rich in off-road racing history. The son of 7-time Pro Light champion, Jeff Kincaid, had a phenomenal season in 2013 with five wins amongst 11 trips to the podium while capturing the 2013 Pro Light Championship. The young gun also took home the most TRAXXAS Fast Lap awards and Most Improved Driver accolades at the year end banquet.
“We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with Keegan as he becomes Neverlift Apparel’s first sponsored driver. He is extremely talented and a humble racer. We will be releasing to fans a limited edition Keegan Kincaid signature line in late spring. We look forward to providing everyone in the racing community with quality, comfortable racing life style clothing,” said AJ Schmitt, owner of Neverlift Apparel.
