Edwards Inks Contemporary Corvette As Associate Sponsor For U.S. Nationals Mike Edwards Racing has added Contemporary Corvette.com as an associate sponsor to the Young Life/A.R.T. Pontiac Pro Stock for the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals. The newest marketing partner with Edwards will actively support and help promote the race team as part of the strategic partnership in respect to particular goals during the events at O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis. The company was also on the car for the NHRA stop in Reading.

"We are very fortunate to have a company like Contemporary Corvette come on board and help us at this most crucial stage of the season," Edwards said. "We will do everything we can to make this partnership stronger and more valuable for them as we do with all of our marketing partners. By adding support to our team, it only helps us elevate our entire business model at all levels in promoting Mike Edwards Motorsports' team message."

Located in Bristol, Pa., just outside of Philadelphia, owner Ron DeSmedt opened his doors for business in 1990 with three Corvettes and a half-acre of what he calls "the Field of Broken Dreams." Now, after tremendous success, he has expanded to four acres to house the nearly 450 Corvettes that occupy the grounds. The company features an all-inclusive website contemporarycorvette.com, where customers can find nearly any part for a Corvette, or 1-800-FOR-VETTE-PARTS to speak with the Contemporary Corvette directly.

In addition to the extensive yard of salvaged Corvettes, the company also has several warehouses full of engines, transmissions, suspension parts and electrical oddities. Most of the products Contemporary Corvette sells are previously owned, but also sells many new parts still in original wrappings, such as chrome trim, emblems and taillight lenses.

Some of the salvages items include instruments, glass, steering columns and wheels, seats, wiper motors, A-frames, speakers, door panels, gas tanks, bumpers, moldings, half-shafts, rims and tires, and just about anything else, including Dana rears and complete rolling frames. Whichever part you would find in a Corvette can be purchased at Contemporary Corvette.

The company's name and website will adorn the front hood of the red Pontiac GXP of Edwards, while the 1-800-FOR-VETTE-PARTS will be on the hood scoop this weekend at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals.
