"My kids got me into racing and the bug bit me hard...I've become
a huge fan. We came up with this dash idea just to give the drivers something
extra to shoot for and the fans some added entertainment and fun," said
Ross Paulson, owner of The Computer Man. "These 305 teams put a lot of
time and money into this sport and this is a way we can give them a little
extra money. I have to thank Jim Ford for allowing us to get involved like
this and the businesses who continue to support this each year."
Paulson has put together sponsors for each of the 305 heat races
in 2006, including Riverside Machine & Tool, R&R Auto Wrecking
