River, NJ-ERS Motorsports and Hell On Wheels Productions today launched
an unprecedented promotional campaign that combines the speed of
stock car racing with the thrills of extreme sports. Today, fans
were given their first look at Ryan Seaman's 06 Monte Carlo emblazoned
with the Hell On Wheels logo and website address (http://www.hellonwheels.com).
, racecar driver in NASCAR's
Busch North Series, hailed the joint effort as a boon for fans of
ERS Motorsports and Hell On Wheels. "Like race fans, followers
of Hell On Wheels like fast and edgy entertainment," said NASCAR
driver Ryan Seaman. "It's natural for us to want to work together," Seaman said. Viewed as a promising candidate for NASCAR's national
circuit, Seaman demonstrated his potential by capturing Auto Meter's
Rookie of the Year award in 2004.
On Wheels is one of the biggest action sports stunt show in the
country. The show features some of the word's top athletes on bicycles,
motorcycles, skateboards and inline skates as seen at the ESPN X-Games,
the NBC Gravity Games and the Dew Action Sports Tour. With a national
network of riders and home bases in Toms River NJ, Dallas TX, Las
Vegas NV and Orlando FL, the company is set up to tour the country
at a relentless pace and plans to rack up well over 100 shows during the year. Their schedule is strategically planned to hit a diverse mixture
of events reaching a wide range of audiences.
I found out about Ryan's success, I wanted to bring our sports together
because our fans have such similar interests," said Jeff Jones,
professional skateboarder and President of Hell On Wheels. "A
lot of people see these cars on TV, but never get a chance to see
them up-close and personal. It will be an awesome opportunity for
the kids and their families at our shows." said Jones.
organizations are looking forward to a busy summer. Ryan Seaman
will start his second full season in NASCAR's Busch Series at Lee
Speedway in New Hampshire on May 15. The Busch North Series competes
throughout Delaware, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania,
New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine. Martin Truex, Jr., also
a New Jersey native, was a winning Busch North Series driver before advancing
to the NASCAR Bush Series on a full-time basis. In 2004, Truex's racing
career made a major advancement when he won the championship for that
Series as a driver for Chance 2 Motorsports, a company co-owned by Dale
On Wheels will start its national tour in April and will be bringing
the team to major racetracks across the country, including some of
the Busch North Series tracks where Seaman is racing. In turn, Seaman
will be displaying his car at many of Hell On Wheels events in and
outside of the racing industry. In addition to their national appearances,
the team is also planning a local event called "Jersey Shore
Summer Tour" in their hometown during the summer months.
the recent years, Hell On Wheels has been performing shows at a
multitude of race events, but Jones said that they have never had
any opportunities to perform on the NASCAR tracks. "A lot of
people thought that it could never be done because of the steep
banking of the track" said Jones, "but it all changed
at the NOPI Nationals at the Atlanta Motor Speedway last year."
September 18, 2004, with over 110,000 in attendance, the stunt show
made its way onto the official NASCAR track for the first time,
and the team pulled off a flawless show. "We were able to use
the bank like a take-off ramp and it actually helped us" said
Jones, "the boys were flying higher than ever and the crowd
went crazy." Jones has since put together a tour with equipment
specifically designed for NASCAR tracks, and has had an overwhelming
response. "And then I met Ryan," said Jones, "after
traveling across the country, it is funny I bumped into him in my
own home town. It is very interesting how everything fit together," Jones added.
Be sure to look for Ryan Seaman (ERS Motorsports) and the Hell On
Wheels stunt show.
