Tulsa, OK (Sep. 8, 2017) — The Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS), based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, announced today that Keith Goolsby has been named its new Marketing and Sales Director.
“My primary goal is to increase sponsorships and build up the Mid-West Pro Mod Series purse,” Goolsby said. “But ultimately I just want to bring to tracks all across the Midwest a sponsor-heavy Pro Mod series that will fill the stands and at the end of the day send everyone home feeling happy and satisfied.”
Goolsby will work closely with Mid-West Pro Mod Series founder and Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park co-owner Keith Haney, who also competes in the series with his nitrous-boosted 2014 Camaro.
“We’re only three races into our inaugural season, but it’s already apparent the Mid-West Pro Mod Series is ready to take off and grow,” Haney said.
“Keith already knows practically everyone at the race tracks we’re going to, plus he has a great reputation among our sponsors, so it’s a great fit all around for everybody involved. He brings a tremendous amount of experience to this role and he’ll make sure the sponsors will be taken care of one-hundred percent.”
A life-long drag racer, Goolsby began competing as a teenager in bracket racing and most recently drove from 2004 to 2011 in a supercharged ’55 Chevy Pro Mod he co-owned with Mitch Chance. In 2012, Goolsby worked with the American Drag Racing League as a sponsor marketing specialist, a role he continued the next year with the Xtreme Drag Racing League before stepping back to concentrate on his own business, Champion Auto Lifts.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to help the Mid-West Pro Mod Series benefit our sponsors, as well as the racers and the tracks we visit,” Goolsby said. “And I think if you ask any marketing partner or sponsor that I’ve ever dealt with in the past they’d tell you that I always make sure they’re promoted properly and equally and evenly, and if they ever have any concerns I address them head on to satisfy them completely, as soon as possible.”
Goolsby lives with his wife, Sarah, in Branson, Missouri, where he also golfs competitively and plays bass in “Oh, Happy Day,” a gospel music show. He can be reached via e-mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (417) 224-2348. ABOUT THE MID-WEST PRO MOD SERIES
The Mid-West Pro Mod Series (MWPMS) is an all-eighth-mile, no-profit organization that typically competes during each host track’s biggest event of the year. Its appearance is entirely funded by sponsorships passed along to benefit the host tracks (typically about $6,500), while also protecting sponsors if the event doesn’t happen for any reason by refunding sponsor payments for that event or allowing a carryover to the next MWPMS event. The Mid-West Pro Mod Series also provides trackside sponsor banners to be displayed at each event along with links to each company on the MWPMS website (www.MidWestProModSeries.com), plus an extensive social-media presence, e-mail blasts and commercials during all events. Complete class rules are posted on the MWPMS website.
