COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (October 31, 2018) – USA Shooting is going racing the next two weeks during the final races of the year in the Trans Am Series thanks to its partnership with Brazen Sports and the generosity of Coleman Motorsports and the #87 3-Dimensional Services Group Ford Mustang driven by founder Doug Peterson.
As the official timekeeper of USA Shooting, Brazen Sports founder Eddie Rimanelli presented a terrific opportunity for the shooting sports to gain additional exposure during the Trans Am Series and the result is a custom-wrapped racecar featuring the USA Shooting brand. Additionally, USA Shooting has the opportunity to showcase key supporting partners that will be along for the ride including Brazen Sports, Federal Premium, Resource One, NSSF’s Project ChildSafe, White Flyer and Krieghoff who are all stepping up in a big way to support America’s Shooting Team. Champion pistol shooter and lead Brazen Sports brand ambassador, Max Michel, will also be featured on the car as well.
“We’re thrilled by the opportunity to combine the passion and precision of marksmanship and motorsports to support America’s shooting team in pursuit of gold at the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” says Rimanelli.
“Partnership is everything to USA Shooting and it comes in all sorts of different forms, and a customized USA Shooting racecar is a unique opportunity presented by our friend Eddie Rimanelli,” said Kevin Neuendorf, Director of Marketing Communications for USA Shooting. “Like the timepieces he creates, it’s brazen and we thank him, the Trans Am Series, Coleman Motorsports and Doug Peterson for their generosity. Similarly, we felt like it was a great opportunity to showcase our major sponsors that mean everything to our athletes and our 2020 vision.”

The Trans Am Series presented by Pirelli is America’s Road Racing Series and dates back to 1966. Throughout the years, some of the greatest names in motorsports have participated in the Trans Am Series. In recent years, a very different Trans Am has emerged. A Trans Am that features 70-plus grids populated by Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers and Corvettes. Trans Am is now powered by relevant, practical and purposeful racing platforms that highlight driver talent and generate organic series growth. That competition platform is paired with a dedication to teams and drivers with a true passion for their sport. In turn, numerous partners have joined in on this remarkable journey, helping bring Trans Am, once more, to the national stage—showcasing the action to a growing and dedicated audience on CBS Sports Network.
The USA Shooting-designed racecar will be featured in this week’s Circuit of Americas tour stop taking place in Austin, Texas, and in the Trans Am Series season finale at Daytona International Speedway. The Daytona race will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network on Sunday, December 2 at 2:00 pm ET. Races are streamed live at www.motortrendondemand.com.
