August 24, 2009, Santa Cruz, Calif. TrailGlow Lighting, a leading provider of high intensity lighting systems for the off road racing community, announced today that it is sponsoring Desert Dingo Racings 2009 off road racing season, including the Baja 1000 in Mexico in November.
Desert Dingo Racing campaigns a 1969 Volkswagen Beetle in off road races in the U.S. and Mexico. The team is the official World Diabetes Day off road race team and works with the International Diabetes Federation to raise money for diabetes education and awareness programs.
TrailGlow Lighting provides the best affordable HID lights available as well as custom lighting systems, including INERGY number panels and decals that greatly increase visibility during night races.
We are impressed with the work that Desert Dingo has done, using its racing program to promote awareness of the growing threat of diabetes in the U.S. and Mexico, said TrailGlow Lighting President Paul Lukey. Our goal is to keep racers safe at night and weve developed solutions that work for everything from the Dingos Class 11 all the way up to Trophy Trucks.
Desert Dingo Racing makes the car available for public events and distributes hero cards with the warning signs of diabetes printed on the back. Two team members have Type 2 diabetes and several other team members have a history of the disease in their families.
Were obviously not the fastest class out there in the desert and running a set of illuminated numbers makes us that much more visible to other races, said Dingo co-founder Jim Graham. Also, the lit numbers look tremendously cool.
The team is ranked third in the Southern Nevada Off Road Enthusiasts racing series, and is prepping No. 1107 for the SNORE 250 in Las Vegas in early October. The team has competed in the 2007 and 2008 Baja 1000 and uses the Nevada series to as warm ups for the race in Mexico.
