Forgeline Sponsors New OPTIMA Batteries DriveAutoX Series

DAYTON, OH – March 28, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Forgeline Motorsports has signed on as an official sponsor of OPTIMA® Batteries’ DriveAutoX series. The brand new series was created to bring a fresh perspective to autocross style events. With classes for all years, makes, models and modification levels, DriveAutoX combines legitimate driving competition and fun at each racing venue throughout the series.

Forgeline has worked previously with the event creator, FM3 Marketing, as well as other sponsors of the DriveAutoX series throughout the years, including OPTIMA and Ride Tech, in addition to the company’s long-standing involvement in the OPTIMA Search for the Ultimate Street Car series. With their reputation for manufacturing superior wheels at their Dayton, Ohio facility, Forgeline combines their wheel expertise with their passion for motorsports with this new event sponsorship. The company’s wheels have become the wheel of choice for many of the vehicles competing in the series primarily because of their ability to withstand the heavier weights of the cars involved in this type of competition.

“DriveAutoX was created to serve as a good entry level series that allows new drivers to learn the skill of autocrossing, and we’re glad to be involved because we’re big supporters of autocrossing and we want it to succeed and prosper in the future,” explained Dave Schardt, President of Forgeline Motorsports.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Forgeline brand. Their commitment to quality, their passion for the grassroots racing enthusiast and their love of family goes hand-in-hand with the DriveAutoX series. Their products are a perfect fit for the DriveAutoX competitor,” said Jimi Day, DriveAutoX founder and competition director.
