Art Supply Company Driving into a Unique Market

USUK Racing, the rally team of Simon and Kieran Wright along with Jerry’s Artarama, one of the largest suppliers of art materials in the United States, are proud to announce a partnership for the 2012 WRC Mexico Rally. This unique partnership will help spread the Jerry’s Artarama name in Mexico, along with helping USUK Racing to accomplish their dream of competing at this event in early March!

Simon and Kieran, a father-son racing team have been working together since 2007 to capture 2010 and 2011 ARC 2WD championships along with other championships over the years. They have competed in over 35 race events and work hard to maintain a strong finish record, racing a 2001 Ford Focus rally car. “We are very proud to have the support of Jerry’s Artarama! It shows their effort to reach unique markets and all types of artists” says Kieran, the team codriver. “As an employee of Jerry’s Artarama, it is extremely encouraging to be able to race and have the support of my employer and, in turn, to help Jerry’s Artarama reach a new market!” "Artists supplies and rally racing may seem like odd bed-fellows", says Simon, the team driver, "but I am confident that the drive to create art is present in all walks of life and we're very pleased to establish this partnership with Jerry's Artarama." USUK Racing have further plans this year to race at Rally West Virginia, Black River Stages, Hyperfest, and other events across the nation.

Jerry’s Artarama sells and produces a wide range of art supplies for hobbyists looking to spend time being creative, all the way up to the professional artist. Jerry’s Artarama is well known for having industry low prices, innovative products, supporting local artists and having fantastic customer service. “Our goal is to have more people creating art and experiencing the wonderful emotional and spiritual effects it can have in their everyday lives and we are proud to support Simon and Kieran in this amazing event,” said Michael Marchetta, Director of Marketing and Operations.
