MWPMS Announces New Marketing and Sales Director
“My primary goal is to increase sponsorships and build up the Mid-West Pro Mod Series purse,” Goolsby said. “But ultimately I just want to bring to tracks all across the Midwest a sponsor-heavy Pro Mod series that will fill the stands and at the end of the day send everyone home feeling happy and satisfied.”
Goolsby will work closely with Mid-West Pro Mod Series founder and Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park co-owner Keith Haney, who also competes in the series with his nitrous-boosted 2014 Camaro.
“We’re only three races into our inaugural season, but it’s already apparent the Mid-West Pro Mod Series is ready to take off and grow,” Haney said. “Keith already knows practically everyone at the race tracks we’re going to, plus he has a great reputation among our sponsors, so it’s a great fit all around for everybody involved. He brings a tremendous amount of experience to this role and he’ll make sure the sponsors will be taken care of——100 percent.”
A life-long drag racer, Goolsby began competing as a teenager in bracket racing and most recently drove from 2004 to 2011 in a supercharged ’55 Chevy Pro Mod he co-owned with Mitch Chance. In 2012, Goolsby worked with the American Drag Racing League as a sponsor marketing specialist, a role he continued the next year with the Xtreme Drag Racing League before stepping back to concentrate on his own business, Champion Auto Lifts.
“I’m really excited about the opportunity to help the Mid-West Pro Mod Series benefit our sponsors, as well as the racers and the tracks we visit,” Goolsby said. “And I think if you ask any marketing partner or sponsor that I’ve ever dealt with in the past they’d tell you that I always made sure they were promoted properly and equally and evenly, and if they ever had a concern I addressed it head on and as soon as possible to satisfy them completely.”
Goolsby lives with his wife, Sarah, in Branson, Missouri, where he also golfs competitively and plays bass in Oh, Happy Day, a gospel music show. He can be reached via e-mail sent to keith.goolsby@ midwestpromodseries.com or by phone at (417) 224-2348.
