Knockaround Sponsoring Duplessis Racing #70 Ford Fiesta R2 Rally Car!


I am extremely pleased to announce that Knockaround has signed on as a supporting sponsor for the Duplessis Racing / LASCO Ford Fiesta R2 Rally Car, driven by #70, Chris Duplessis.

You’ve probably heard us mention Chris over the last year- that’s because he was cool enough to run Knockaround decals on his car last season, just because he’s a big fan of our sunglasses.  But this year, he’ll be driving in more events, and we wanted to support the cause, and make sure he had the resources to get to as many events as possible.  So we are officially signed on as a supporting sponsor.  This season, you’ll see Chris rocking Knockaround sunglasses (sometimes even when he races) and Knockaround decals on the hood of the Fiesta.

Chris’ #70 Ford Fiesta is two wheel drive, meaning he competes directly against other two wheel drive cars.  This year he’ll be competing in several Rally America events, along with a few WRC (World Rally Championship) events.  To those not familiar with rally racing, the WRC is essentially “the major leagues.”  Big time.

Chris has already participated in two Rally America events this season… and he’s won both.  That’s right: first place in his division at Sno-Drift and Rally in the 100 Acre Wood.  So he’s two for two.  And he didn’t just win those races.  He dominated those races.  But you don’t have to take my word for it- just look at what Ford Racing said.

So stay tuned:  we’ll be updating you on how Chris is doing all season.  We might even try to get to a race.  -Ace
