Champion System and Monster Nation Join Forces in 2010!


(Chicago, IL) Custom motorsports apparel manufacturer Champion System, and professional monster truck series Monster Nation have announced their partnership for the 2010 season, making Champion System the “Official Uniform of Monster Nation”.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Champion System aboard as our official uniform supplier for our Monster Nation 2010 Pedal To The Metal tour,” said Monster Nation Sponsorship Coordinator Kyle Doyle.  “The core values of the Monster Nation tour are quality, professionalism, and affordability.  It is no coincidence that our values align perfectly with those of Champion System.”  He added that “we strive for a high-level of professionalism with our events, from the venues we choose to the monster trucks and FMX riders that compete at the events to the uniforms of our staff.  Thanks to Champion System, we’ll be looking as professional as ever.”

Eric Cody, Motorsports Division Director for Champion System was equally ecstatic.  “Since first taking the world by storm in the 80’s, the monster truck industry’s popularity has continued to soar each and every year.  We realized that we [Champion System] needed to get involved with a quality operation in order to introduce ourselves to the industry, and with the Monster Nation series I feel we’ve found that outlet.”  Cody went on to explain that “the Monster Nation crew has quickly established themselves as consummate professionals in their industry, and by partnering with Champion System for their uniform needs, I think they’ll be raising the bar even higher, and we are proud to be right there with them.”

“Champion System has just been fantastic to work with,” said Monster Nation Event Coordinator Brian Manson.  “Champion System’s downloadable shirt templates made it easy for myself and the staff to lay out a design that we could all agree on.  That, coupled with their low minimums and unlimited color selection at no extra charge made them the obvious choice.” 

The Monster Nation 2010 Pedal To The Metal tour kicks off January 8th and 9th at the Century Tel Arena in Bossier City, LA (Shreveport).  Nine individual events make up the schedule that also includes stops in N. Charleston, SC; South Haven, MS (Memphis);  and Beaumont, TX.  The events appeal to fans of all ages, and feature three forms of monster truck competition, freestyle motocross, and more.  Trucks scheduled to be competing on the tour include the legendary BIGFOOT, Tailgator, and Equalizer among others.  For more information on the series, visit the Monster Nation homepage at  Fans can also become a fan of Monster Nation on Facebook by visiting the series website.

Champion System Is Official Uniform Provider of Champion Racing Association


Officials from Champion System and Champion Racing Association have announced that Champion System has agreed to become the Official Uniform Provider of Champion Racing Association for the upcoming 2009 race season. Champion System will provide uniform shirts for all the Champion Racing Association officials for all five series they sanction including the CRA Super Series, CRA Super Series South, Howe Late Model Sportsman Series, CRA Street Stocks and Vores Welding & Steel CRA FWD Compacts.

“Everyone at Champion System is excited about the opportunity to work with Champion Racing Association,” remarked Scott Kaylin owner of Champion System. “As the Official Uniform Provider of CRA we look forward to gaining exposure in each of their five series during the 2009 season. In this time when most companies are pulling back sponsorships, we feel that it is important to support the Motorsports industry any way we can.”

“We are very happy to have Champion System’s support with CRA in 2009,” remarked Glenn Luckett, Managing Partner of Champion Racing Association. “It is great to partner with a company that is looking to get involved in the grass roots level of auto racing. We greatly appreciate their support and look forward to working with them through out the season.”

Based in New York City, Champion System was founded by avid sports enthusiasts who have combined their strong 20-year knowledge of the apparel business with their love of all sports.

Champion System specializes in the production of high quality custom technical apparel. With Champion System, teams have the ability to order a wide range of custom uniforms with unlimited colors and low minimums. Champion System has set a new standard in the custom Motorsports clothing business. Champion System’s simple, all-inclusive pricing structure makes ordering a breeze whether you are outfitting a 5-member crew or a 500 member race series. Champion System can offer the pro quality custom uniforms you demand at the price you want.

Champion System pit crew shirts are made from the highest quality fabrics. These pit crew shirts are full custom designs, meaning you can print the logos, colors or pictures that you want. Champion System offer two types of fabrics – CS Tech fabric, which is a lightweight and breathable fabric that is perfect for hot days, and a woven fabric that has the look and feel of more traditional pit crew shirts. Customers can mix and match the two fabrics within their order.

What really sets Champion System apart is their state-of-the-art digital sublimation printing capabilities. Unlike most competitors, who use one set of artwork for the entire order, Champion System prepares separate artwork for every garment and every size. That means that the design will look the same on a XS and a 4XL. Champion System also has the ability to cross seams. For example, let’s say you have a design with a stripe that runs from the sleeve and across to the main body of the shirt. Champion System’s innovative printing process will guarantee that the stripe will line up perfectly on all sizes. More information on Champion System is available at



Champion System to Become Official Uniform Supplier to IHRA

Champion System, the New York-based full service custom apparel and accessory manufacturer, has entered into an agreement with the International Hot Rod Association to become the sanctioning body’s “Official Uniform Supplier.” The company has also acquired title sponsorship rights to IHRA’s seven-event 2009 Sportsman Nationals schedule.
“This is a perfect fit for us and an ideal situation for Champion System,” IHRA director of contingency and inside sales Kurt Oberholtzer said. “They have a product with outstanding quality that is very affordable, something our race teams will be able to take advantage of. Plus, they are an active company with aggressive leadership who wanted to branch out from their traditional role in cycling to brand their company in motor sports applications. We’re pleased they chose IHRA as their platform to do this.”
Champion System president Scott Kaylin thinks his company will blend in with IHRA immediately.
“IHRA wants to have a professional image as a company and we’re all about that,” Kaylin said. “This partnership is a very good fit.”
Kaylin has specific reasons he wanted to work with IHRA, citing Champion System’s background and the company’s roots.
“We started our business in cycling so we’re new to motor sports, but they are very similar in that both cycling and motor sports, especially drag racing, are sponsor-driven,” he said. “It’s a unique challenge to incorporate multiple sponsors into a uniform, but this is a challenge we have been meeting for a long time with our cycling background. Our transition into drag racing should be relatively seamless. This is a perfect fit for us.”
Champion System will provide IHRA officials with the uniforms they will be wearing at all 2009 Nitro Jam national events, Summit Racing Equipment Pro-Am events and all Champion System Sportsman Nationals presented by VP Racing Fuels events. The company will also be looking to build a client base consisting of IHRA competitors…particularly at the sportsman level.
“We wanted to get involved with IHRA because of their dedication and attention to the sportsman drag racer,” Kaylin said. “Because of our business model and experience we will be able to offer affordable garments and uniforms to the sportsman and professional teams. We want to make the sportsman racers look and feel like professionals when it comes to what they wear in competition.”
And we immediately received this response from one motorsports company:
Thank You Champion System for your recent decision to become Title Sponsor of IHRA's Sportsman Nationals.  In this day of scaled back services, you have awaken our Team's spirit by supporting Sportsman Drag Racing.
I read the IHRA web site posting and honestly, I had my doubts as to how much savings you all could give the Sportsman racer.  Well, after viewing your web site and prices, all I can say is "Wow, you got to be kidding me!"  Those prices are the best I've seen in years.  We spent more for the uniform shirts we have now and they are not that good looking.
You all will be hearing from us soon!

Champion System Is Official Uniform Supplier to Don Schumacher Racing


Champion System, a company specializing in the production of high-quality custom technical clothing, has signed a multi-year agreement with Don Schumacher Racing to be the official team uniform supplier, beginning with the 2009 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series season.
Based in New York City, Champion System was founded by avid sports enthusiasts who have combined their strong 20-year knowledge of the apparel business with their love of all sports. With its roots based in cycling, Champion System is expanding to include different forms of motorsports.
Champion System provides a new approach to the custom technical clothing business. By allowing sports teams, retailers and individuals to order a full line of custom uniforms with unlimited colors and low minimums, it has set a new standard in the custom technical clothing business.
Along with supplying DSR with state-of-the-art uniforms, Champion System's logo will appear on all DSR race vehicles, transporters, technical trailers and hospitality trailers.
"It's very exciting for us to have the opportunity to be associated with Don Schumacher and the entire Don Schumacher Racing organization," said Scott Kaylin, president of Champion System. "Being relatively new to motorsports, we feel it will add a tremendous amount of validity to what our company is, what we represent and what we are trying to accomplish.
"One of the premises of our business is to be able to take care of a high-level athlete as well as a recreational athlete in any form. The processes that we do for our clothing are much different than what other companies in our industry do, which will allow us to provide services to the Schumacher organization that many of our competitors are unable to do. And, obviously, the teams that are in the DSR corral are very highly respected.
"With this affiliation, I think people will take notice of who we are, which is the initial goal, and then we have to prove what we are capable of accomplishing through our product. We can't make a driver faster, but we can do everything possible to make him look sharp and be comfortable, along with his crew and other team members," added Kaylin.
"We are honored to add Champion System to our associate sponsorship lineup for the 2009 NHRA Full Throttle Series and for future seasons," said team owner Schumacher. "The company's high-quality and innovative approach to the apparel business mirrors our team's goals to achieve success and provide the best product in our business. It is a perfect fit, and we look forward to a long association with Champion System.

"We plan to work closely with everyone at Champion System to help expand the awareness of its products throughout the NHRA drag-racing community. We believe in putting all of our team's efforts, whether it be through endorsements and/or customer hospitality, to help support and promote Champion System."
