“If all we wanted to do was sell more shirts, we would put our products in the big, commercial merchandising trailers and shopping malls like all the other apparel companies. That has never been our primary goal. Our mission is to help racers.” – Joe McConnell CEO Dirt Dog Industries
Sponsorship is Getting Harder to Find, So We Came Up with a New Idea.
WORK TOGETHER. GROW TOGETHER.
JOIN THE REVOLUTION!
DO YOU WANT: MORE $$$ for RACING? INCREASED NAME RECOGNITION? MORE EXPOSURE for YOUR SPONSORS? TOOLS & COACHING to LAND MORE SPONSORS? A VARIETY of CUSTOM TEAM APPAREL in SMALL QUANTITIES?
To a certain extent, racing will always be a money game. But we think things have gotten out of hand and that it's time someone helped the underfunded teams that "show up and suit up" every week to keep our sport alive.
WE BELIEVE THAT PASSION, TALENT & HARD WORK SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED.
WE BELIEVE THERE ARE NEW, SMARTER WAYS TO GROW OUR SPORT.
WE BELIEVE THAT ALL RACERS DESERVE ACCESS TO QUALITY MERCHANDISE & EFFECTIVE PR.
WE BELIEVE IN YOU.
WHAT IS TEAM DIRT DOG? Team Dirt Dog is a pretty simple program. We want qualified racers to act as our brand ambassadors and local distributors. If you are accepted, you're allowed to buy Dirt Dog Gear Merchandise at wholesale in any quantity (10 tees, 6 hats, etc.). You buy wholesale, sell at retail and keep the profit each night. We'll even personalize our merchandise with your team logo for no additional cost!
Here's the catch. We only allow one distributor per track or series, so there is an initial, minimum deposit or "buy in" of $500 to lock in your "territory" and wholesale discount level. Every penny of your deposit goes towards your first wholesale order. After that, each wholesale order only needs to meet the minimum order total for your program level ($150 per order for Distributors, $250 per order for Merchant Accounts and $500 for Bulk Commercial). After four years of running this program, we've found that $500 is the minimum amount of inventory one should start with. Any less, and you simply won't have enough variety to offer your customers (designs, sizes and colors).
For most racers, a "product sponsorship" now amounts to little more than 10-20% off retail pricing and maybe a contingency award in exchange for displaying their decals on your vehicle. As a member of Team Dirt Dog, we'll give you contingency awards and a whopping 33-60% discount for doing the same thing! Plus, we provide our racers with the added credibility of a national sponsor, a full season of free, global PR on Dirt Dog Media (press releases, graphic design, video editing and distribution) plus a host of additional services and discounts.
Our social media reaches over 400,000 people every month.

For the average local or regional racer, one year of PR with Team Dirt Dirt will increase your exposure 10x to 50x over what you would generate on your own. More Exposure = More Sponsor Opportunities * On average, each PR post we make for our racers is worth over $200 (each post includes FB, Twitter & IG). 10 Posts per Season = $2,000+ in Free PR!
WHAT MAKES OUR MERCHANDISING PROGRAM DIFFERENT? We now offer over 2,000,000 possible choices of garments, sizes, colors, designs, logos and sleeve prints and will double our product offering in 2018. What makes this program unique is that we allow you to buy ANY quantity of each design, garment or product at wholesale. The idea is for you to have a wide variety of ever changing merchandise in small quantities.
1. Variety attracts more customers, increases your average sale amount and generates more repeat business. (Most folks aren't going to buy three copies of the same shirt, but they will buy three different Dirt Dog designs with your name on them.)
2. Small inventoryquantities reduce overstock, allow you to frequently restock with fresh, new designs and increase sales by training the customer to "buy it now" because you might not have it next week.
3. CUSTOMIZE IT! You can now turn our designs into your Team Apparel by personalizing some or all of your Dirt Dog Gear with custom sleeve prints and/or by replacing the Dirt Dog logo with your name/car # or team logo. As a member of Team Dirt Dog, you will not be charged the extra customization fees like our retail customers. You pay the same, wholesale price for customized or "off the rack" merchandise and can mix and match in any quantities! To accomplish this, we simply need you to pay a low, one time, set up fee or increase your initial "buy in" as outlined on the application page. For most racers, our custom logo option is a much more flexible, lower risk and higher profit alternative to buying a large quantity of traditional "driver shirts".
Team Dirt Dog members can use our merchandise for sponsor gifts, online contests and event prizes plus make money by selling at their events.
Earn $1,000 - $10,000 profit each season selling Dirt Dog Gear at your track or series. We provide international marketing to generate customers for you. We only succeed if you do.
