With the 2015 racing series beginning to gel, we’re starting to see racers and teams shore up sponsorships and announce their plans for the year’s events. Yesterday, we were alerted that industry graphics leader, IPD Graphics has recently joined in a partnership with Pro Watercraft Racing as the official graphics sponsor for Pro Watercraft’s race team.
IPD Graphics published the following press release on their Facebook page: “Proud to announce [that] IPD signed on to be the Official Graphic Sponsor of the Pro Watercraft Racing Team for 2015! Pro Watercraft Racing is lead by handling mastermind Chris Hagest, and is responsible for creating the best handling products in the industry and used by the top riders in the industry, riders such as Stian Schjetlein, Kevin Reiterer, Jimmy Wilson, etc.”
IPD Graphics’ own Casey Mauldin explained to The Watercraft Journal, “We’re excited to announce that IPD Graphics has just signed the deal with Pro Watercraft Racing to be the official graphic supplier for the Pro Watercraft Race Team for the 2015 race season.
“We’ve long been advocates of Pro Watercraft Racing’s brand of handling products, and have much appreciation for CEO Chris Hagest in bringing the JR Star program to light.
