Team Viperizer 101



What exactly is Team Viperizer?  --- Well, it began as a sponsorship program for Jr dragster racers all over the country, but in three short months, it has grown to become so much more. ViperizerRacing.com had three goals in mind when developing this sponsorship program: Support our racers, support our sport, and support our brand.

Support our racers: We first and foremost want to ensure that we were doing our best to support racers. We want to support those who are doing well on and off the track, as well as help those who are new to the sport.

Support our sport: We love this sport and we want to see more racers get out there and do what they love. We want racers that will not only support Viperizer, but racers that will also encourage other kids to start racing.

Support our brand: We truly appreciate all of the kind words that you have shared about our company over the past two years. We love hearing about our customers and seeing our decals on the track. We want to let everyone know that our company is very invested in our products and in our racers/customers.

With that being said, I wanted to answer a few questions that I have been getting about the program.


1. What is Team Viperizer?
  • Team Viperizer started as a sponsorship program designed to help racers all over the world; however, it has grown into something much more. Team Viperizer has turned into a community of junior racers who support one another on and off the track. The word “team” cannot be emphasized enough. We are elated and very proud of our racers in everything that they are accomplishing.

2. How many levels/packages are there?
  • There are three levels of sponsorship packages. When we developed the program, we had to decide between giving a few racers a large amount of perks or many racers an average amount. We ultimately chose a mix of both and that is how our levels were created. 

3. What are the levels?
  • Level 1 is our beginner package, level 2 is our intermediate package, and level 3 is our pro package. Each level comes with special perks and discounts. If you would like more specific details regarding each package, please email Nicole at teamviperizer@viperizerracing.com

4. How were drivers chosen?
  • Since this was our first year picking sponsored drivers, we looked into many different qualifications (location, age, online presence, experience, schedule, extracurricular activities, etc.). With over 200 racers applying for sponsorship, the competition was tight and our decisions were often difficult. One thing that we paid particular attention to was online presence. We looked for racers who were excited to share their accomplishments and our brand online with their family and friends. We have a strong online presence and we want to be able to interact with our racers on the same level.  We think this is one reason why this program has developed into a phenomenal community of racers.

5. How do I join?
  • All of the 2016 sponsorship spots have been filled; however, we will be accepting applications for the 2017 season in February. We post all of our news and updates on social media. We are on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. Stay connected with us throughout the year, even if you aren’t sponsored. We love hearing from you and we definitely take note of those that are active on our page. Make sure you use the hashtag #TeamViperizer on your posts!


Team Viperizer is not only a sponsorship program, but it is a community of racers that work together and support one another to better this sport.

5 Reasons To Create a Racing Fan Page

With over 700 million active users, Facebook is by far the most popular social media website to date. Hundreds of millions of people are interacting and engaging on Facebook each day. Whether you are considering a career in racing or you just want to show off your accomplishments, creating a Facebook Fan page is an easy (and free) way to showcase your racing career and connect with other racers. Still not convinced? Here are 5 reasons why you should create your Racing Fan Page today: 


1. It's Easy to Create

Creating a Facebook fan page is incredibly easy to create. It is also free. Websites are great to have as well, but they can become costly and are often difficult to create. The only requirement for a fan page is that it has to be linked to a personal page (don’t worry your fans won’t see your personal page). Because of its popularity, Facebook sets up an easy to use template to create the ultimate racing page.


2. Attract Sponsors

What better way to attract sponsors than to have a page that displays your racing career? If you are applying for a sponsorship, including your fan page is a nice touch to your application. It shows potential sponsors that you are serious about your sport, it will also showcase your accomplishments, and also lets a sponsor know that you will promote their brand on Facebook.  Sponsors want more exposure and this is an easy way to give it to them. It’s a win-win.

3. Show Off Your Racing While Keeping Your Personal Page Private

The difference between a fan page and a personal profile is that the fan page is completely public. Creating a fan page can allow you to keep your racing posts in one place and your private posts on your profile. When friends and family want to see how you placed last week, they can check out your page without having to log into Facebook. This is a great option for parents with young children who cannot have their own profile. 

4. Customized News Feed

When you have a Facebook fan page, you are able to connect with other pages and businesses by “liking” their page. Your news feed will only consist of the pages that you have “liked”. This is a cool way to keep up all of your racing news in one place. Not to mention it makes it incredibly easy to connect with and keep up with all your racing buddies across the United States and throughout the world. 


5. A Virtual Scrapbook of Your Career 

Even if you do not wish to pursue a career in racing, a Facebook fan page is an easy way to showcase your accomplishments in one spot. Highlighting your time as a Jr Drag racer on a fan page is literally a virtual scrapbook for you to have and reminisce for years to come.

You Might Be A Jr Dragster Mom If . . .

There are two types of moms out there…
Moms & Jr. Dragster Moms

Jr Dragster Moms spend countless hours preparing, driving, cheering, watching and celebrating their little racers.  With Mother's Day quickly approaching, we wanted to take the time to thank these superhero women that make this sport possible. Without you Viperizer would not be what it is today.  

You might be a Jr Dragster Mom if:


  1. You spend the majority of your weekends in a golf cart and have never touched a set of golf clubs
  2. You are not only your child’s biggest fan, but you are also their personal assistant, accountant, and chauffeur - The Momager
  3. You own more cars than your house has bedrooms, but your car is never parked in the garage
  4. You see more Christmas trees in June, July, and August than you do in December
  5. You plan your summer vacation around your child’s racing schedule or your vacation is your child’s racing schedule
  6. Instead of having your child’s picture in your purse, you have their timeslips
  7. You get tired of explaining why the first one to the finish line is not always the winner to people that do not understand the sport
  8. You still hold your breath when your child is on the starting line whether it’s the 1st or 100th run
  9. You don’t bat an eye about spending money on dragster tires, but the tires on your car should have been replaced months ago
  10. You are proud of your kid no matter how many points they have and how many Wallys they receive. You are always the biggest fan and you LOVE every minute of it!
