Ever since the start of the year many of the followers of SLW have been shocked at how much money the SLW front office has thrown into the promotion and marketing of SLW. And then the “SLW Marketing Machine” has surprise its loyal following with a major announcement this morning. To further the reach of SLW, Jaime and Geoff Hixson have decided to sponsor a ride in NASCAR! I have followed racing for a real long time and I am completely excited. I am already looking forward to seeing what the car looks like. Will it have the SLW on the hood or the Shangri La script? What track will the SLW Racing Team make it’s debut. One item that we will not have to wait for is who the driver will be. Jaime Hixson stated that Cousin Tom has been signed to drive the SLW car, “T.A. has the tools to take our racing team to a NASCAR Championship, he has cut his teeth at the local tracks and raced in serveral demolition derbys,” stated Hixson.
It was announced that T.A. and the Hixson Bros. have agreed on the number of the car, it will be “24”. T.A. fought long and hard for the number 24 and that it was agreed upon late last night. The number 24 has long been the number of Jeff Gordon, but T.A. has petitioned NASCAR for the rights to have the number on his car. The local media did catch up to Jeff Gordon for comment and he did not shed to much light on the subject, “T.A is coming to NASCAR….is that the guy that keeps sending me those naked pictures?” stated Gordon.
