Exciting news!!! …. After 6 years of being the title sponsor of the evergrowing 1000 Islands RV DIRTcar Northeast Fall Nationals, a new partner has agreed to step in and grab the wheel of this extremely popular event held mid October each year at the Brockville Ontario Speedway. Moving forward, Loud&Dirty Brand™, will now carry the banner of Title Sponsor for the famous Fall Nationals!
Loud&Dirty Brand™ was conceived in the summer of 2013 as an idea for a tshirt slogan inspired by motorsports culture. It’s popularity began to grow almost immediately and by late 2015 the clothing brand became officially established. Loud&Dirty is owned, operated and distributed by a small company called Erupshun Industries Inc, owned by Les & Crystal Hatz, out of the village of Vankleek Hill, ON.
Les Hatz created his original company over 15 years ago as a hobby, and as a means of staying connected to the motorsports and action sports community. Over the years the company has done just that by being a constant presence at a wide variety of racing events, and other types of motorsport oriented festivals and fairs as well as organizing and promoting their own events.
According to Les, “In the beginning I had no specific expectations for all this. I’ve always been fairly creative, and I was just messin’ around with one of our bikes and the idea popped into my head: This thing is Loud, and it’s “Dirty” I thought to myself, lol. No more, no less. So I called up my shirt printer and said I want this saying on a shirt and I want it to have a Bold and Simple Retro/Vintage vibe, and that was it, the rest is kinda history now – more laughing out *loud. The brand has basically manifested itself into a Blue Collar clothing line, which so many people can relate to”.
“As for this new project with dirt track racing I CANNOT be more excited! I’ve always admired the sport from afar, but never really had a chance to be more closely involved with it – til now! I really like the area this racetrack sits in. The people in that entire region have been great, and have made us feel very welcomed. So when this opportunity presented itself it was really a no brainer for Crystal and I to jump on board. I just think we’re a darn good fit for Dirt Car Racing and for the Brockville Speedway and that this will be great for our brand” added Hatz, when asked about the brand’s new role of Title Sponsor of the North East Fall Nationals.
On behalf of the Brockville Speedway, Paul & Cheryl Kirkland wish to sincerely thank 1000 Islands RV Center for all of their efforts and support over the last few years! Their direct involvement has helped us build the Fall Nationals into the entertaining and successful annual event so many have come to enjoy. We wish the entire group at 1000 Islands RV Center the very best in their upcoming endeavours… and we invite you to stay tuned for another exciting announcement coming soon!!
