Some ideas needed, changes coming updated 3-31-11

Good afternoon Mn,
I am in the process of calling Diesel parts suppliers in the state to try and find a sponsor/ partner to start doing stuff as a group. I am talking Dyno pulls, drag races, maybe even some shows. My thoughts are to give our group a club name and then maybe some of these places will sell parts to us at a discount price. I found a guy starting out up in Ham Lake and he would be interested but he only does it part time for now but he will give us the best deal he can without loosing money. So what I need from you is a club name. Post your ideas for the name in this thread and then we will vote as a group...........Heck maybe I will try being a supplier.......

My choice would be the Suppertown Blue Ovals ( 3 for Lee).....

Hey Tom! This sounds like a great idea! One thing I would add is that maybe expand your look for sponsers to include other suppliers besides the diesel ones. There are a lot of other trucks believe it or not that don't have diesels. haha Lee comes to mind first of course. Even classic truck places considering all the many years of Ford trucks out there. Just a thought......

I am liking the name but will see if I can think of anything else too.

I agree Troy that is why diesel isn't in the name I chose. I was also thinking the same , that's a great idea about multiple sponsors and that way we get everybody covered......

Not that I don't like the Suppertown in the name but what about Minnesota Blue Ovals (still three for Lee)?

Even though there is a WI guy in our group we could let him join! As long as he pays his dues that is!! LOL
