LifeLock sponsors Webber Racing
Racing driver Jacob Webber of Corydon-based Webber Racing has concluded a team sponsorship program with Tempe, Ariz.-based LifeLock to compete in the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for the 2008 and 2009 racing series.
LifeLock is the industry leader in the rapidly growing field of Identity Theft Protection, and Webber Racing is a late model racing team owned and operated by Michael and Tracy Webber.
The Webbers are already backed by primary sponsor Lucas Oil.
‘We are truly delighted to have this new opportunity to build a win-win program with LifeLock,’ said Mike Webber. ‘We are all LifeLock subscribers, and we were excited to see LifeLock’s sponsorship of NASCAR’s LifeLock 400 this past summer in Kansas. For the Lucas Oil Dirt Series, we will feature LifeLock on our No. 83W race car at race events and throughout our family businesses in Corydon.’
Seventeen-year-old Jacob Webber’s interest in racing began when he first tried recreational karting at age 4. In July 2005, at the age of 14, Jacob officially launched his racing career when he qualified to compete in the Evansville-based UMP Dirt Car Racing Series. Only able to enter seven races due to age limitations his first year, Jacob still earned Rookie of the Year honors and finished ninth overall in points at Thunder Valley Raceway in Salem. During 2007, as Jacob honed his driving skills, his parents purchased local businesses to further support their racing team.
In 2008, the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series will showcase a collection of super rugged $50,000 race cars at 44 racing events in 16 states.
The race cars resemble sleek stock cars. Under aluminum bodies, each 2,300-pound car is constructed of advanced steel tubing and typically powered by a Chevrolet, Ford or Mopar 800-horsepower V-8 engine.
‘The Webbers are an extremely hard working and proud family, and they have put everything into Jacob’s racing career,’ said Jarrett Boon, director of business development for LifeLock. ‘We are pleased to work with Webber Racing on a regional revenue sharing program that promotes the team and builds grassroots support for LifeLock.’
In addition to Lucas Oil and LifeLock, Webber Racing is also sponsored by Special Care Laundromat and Old Capital Cleaners, both in Corydon.
LifeLock’s revenue-sharing program provides a means for the Webbers to fund and grow their racing venture and position the team for long-term success. As Jacob’s ultimate goal is to one day be a serious competitor in NASCAR, the Webber family’s partnership with LifeLock puts him one step closer to victory lane.
