Spokane, WA -  As the Inland Northwest Super Stock Association (INSSA) is getting ready to embark on it's third year of racing Saturday April 29th, the association is proud to announce the signing of multiple marketing partners for the 2006 season.

Starting the 2006 campaign with a bang will be promotional opportunities with the weekly radio show the Speed Sport Report. In addition to the Speed Sport Report, Hooters restaurant in the Spokane Valley, Steelhead Bar & Grille, opening soon in downtown Spokane, KC Auto Paint, with locations in Spokane and Coeur d’Alene, and Physical Therapy Associates, located at 30th & Grand are among some of the marketing partners already on board for the 2006 season. Returning for their third season will be Windermere Real Estate. Windermere, in their brand new office on Country Homes Boulevard near Division, has been a great supporter of the series since its inaugural season. Sunoco Race Fuels will also be back for the 2006 season, as well the addition of Five Star Racing Products.

The Speed Sport Report, heard every Saturday morning at 9 am on 790 the FAN is hosted by racer Tony Villelli and Ken Spatz. Bringing you up to speed on all the racing action the past week from Nascar, Indy Cars, and Formula One for four years now, a relationship with INSSA will put an increased emphasis on the local racing scene. "I am really excited to see how our organizations can work together in an effort to help promote racing in general. If we get more local fans and sponsors excited about motorsports, it will benefit everyone," said Villelli. Tune in this Saturday to hear from 2005 INSSA Champion Kevin Richard and runner-up Dan Garber.

The Hooters restaurant chain has a clear connection to the motorsports arena on the east coast and will continue their involvement with competitive stock car racing this year with INSSA. "Hooters has a terrific reputation of motorsports involvement and we are thrilled to have them on board for the 2006 season,” said Bruce Garber, President of INSSA. The newly opened Hooters restaurant is located on Indiana Ave, just off of Sullivan Road in the Spokane Valley.

INSSA is also very proud to be teaming up with these marketing partners to put the spotlight on several deserving local charities in an effort to increase awareness and support. Spokane Guilds’ School Foundation, Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, Morning Star Boys Ranch, and the Spokane Humane Society will be among the featured community organizations who will be VIP guests at some of the INSSA races throughout the season. In addition to being honored guests, INSSA and the marketing partners will be donating a portion of the marketing funds to the charities. INSSA is proud to support the great organizations that support our community.

Set to kick off the 2006 season this Saturday, the list of drivers for this year’s season reads like a who's who of Inland Northwest stock car racing. Returning to defend the 2005 title will be Kevin Richards, a former winner on NASCAR’s Grand National West Series. Richards won five races in route to a seat at the head table at last year’s banquet. With support from McClintock & Turk and Rent Rite, look for the black #14 car to be up front again this year.

Also returning this season is the 2005 points runner-up by just nine points, and the 2004 Champion of this series, Dan Garber. The Spokane Chimney and Masonry, Hot Boat Magazine #95 closed out the 2005 campaign in impressive fashion. There was no one hotter, with Garber amassing three wins in the final four races.

Dave Garber, who was winless in 2005, posted seven podium finishes during the season to finish in the 3rd points position, just 68 points out of the top spot. Garber is hoping to redeem himself in 2006, with Poker Run Magazine & Drew Marine Racing Engines as new sponsors on the car and a new power plant under the hood.

The only other driver to win a 2005 INSSA series race is hoping to start the year this season in the same fashion. Mike Behar, driver of the #33 River City Solid Surface and Custom Welding and Fabrication Chevy Monte Carlo debuted a car new to him at the first race of last season, and won in the early year, colder temperatures.

The 2006 INSSA series will kick off this Saturday night, April 29th at the Stateline Speedway in Post Falls, Idaho. INSSA officials are expecting a full field of cars this weekend, so be sure to arrive early and catch all the action. Gates will open at 12 pm, practice at 2, racing at 7 pm.
