PLATINUM LEVEL SPONSORSHIPS OPPORTUNITIES

Pit Row Sponsor
Pit Row Banner – $5,000.00 • Pit Row Ground Applied Vinyl – $3,000.00 • Both – $7,000.00
Part of the excitement of going to any race is going into the “pits” to see the cars and watch the teams working furiously to make sure their car is ready to race. Since our first year, many fans report that the pre-race “car show” is their favorite part of the day. Each team’s car is parked in Pit Row after check-in, and it is in this area that the cars are judged for various awards given out at the end of the day. Your company or organization can sponsor Pit Row with your choice of an Overhead Banner, Ground Applied Vinyl or both, with your company’s logo prominently displayed. Only one company will be granted the right to sponsor Pit Row. The Pit Row sponsor will also be “liked” by the Madison Ave Soapbox Derby Facebook site, and the sponsor’s logo will be placed on the website and shown as a Platinum Level sponsor on the Winner’s Circle banner. Your company will also have its own trackside sign and will have a shout-out by our emcees.

Start Line Sponsor – 3 start lines available
Adult – $700.00 • 7-17- $900.00 • 6 and under – $1,200.00
Get your company’s logo into every photo taken of racers at the top of the track by sponsoring the start line. Each start line will be an applied vinyl graphic showing where each age group will begin the race. The younger racers run a shorter course, and therefore their start lines will have great exposure. Start Line sponsors will have their company’s logo prominently featured as the starting line for the chosen age group. Start Line sponsors will be “liked” by the Madison Ave Soapbox Derby Facebook site, and their logo will be placed on the website and shown as a Platinum Level sponsor on the Winner’s Circle banner. Your company will also have its own trackside sign and will have a shout out by our emcees.

Finish Line Sponsor – $8,000.00
Every race car driver dreams of crossing it; every pair of eyes at the track are trained on it; and your company’s logo can be right there at the focus of every race. The Finish Line sponsor will have their company’s logo prominently featured on the finish line ground-applied vinyl. Every car will pass over the same finish line, no matter which age group they are racing in. The Finish Line sponsor will also be “liked” by the Madison Ave Soapbox Derby Facebook site, and their logo will be placed on the website and shown as a Platinum Level sponsor on the Winner’s Circle banner. Your company will also have its own trackside sign and will have a shout-out by our emcees.

Ramp Sponsors – 2 positions available
Down side – $1,000.00 • Loading side – $500.00
Each of our Adult and 7-17 racers begin on a ramp to help them gain momentum quickly. Each Ramp sponsor will have their logo applied to the ramp, so each racer using the ramp will get an extra boost of speed from your company’s logo. Ramp sponsor companies will be “liked” by the Madison Ave Soapbox Derby Facebook site, and the logo will be placed on the website shown as a Platinum Level sponsor on the Winner’s Circle banner. Your company will also have its own trackside sign and will have a shout-out by our emcees.

Medical Tent Sponsor – $5,000.00
Accidents happen, but we will be prepared. Licensed doctors and nurses staff the Madison Ave Soapbox Derby medical tent to take care of any injuries that might occur at the racetrack.

Howard Cosell, Dick Vitale, John Madden–some of the greatest moments in sports are remembered as much for the announcers’ commentary as for the events themselves. The Madison Ave Soap Box Derby has its own amazingly entertaining commentators in Imari Havard and Wanda Nesbitt. Past attendees report that Imari and Wanda’s commentary was the highlight of the entertainment. This year we are placing them up above the crowd to see and be seen by all. We are also upgrading the PA system so that no matter what they say, everyone will hear it. With their commentary taking a more central role in the Race Day entertainment, we know they will draw the eyes of everyone in the crowd. The MC Tower sponsors will have their company’s logo adorning one side or the front of the tower. These banner placements represent the lowest cost of track advertisement on the entire course. MC Tower Banner sponsors will also be “liked” by the Madison Ave Facebook page and will have their logo added to the Gold Level sponsors on the Winner’s Circle banner.
