MSG Sponsors Young Racer From Monroe, Michigan

The Mannik & Smith Group, Inc. (MSG) will return as an associate sponsor for Jeff Myers Jr. Racing in 2014. The firm’s sponsorship continues the community trend of supporting a young racer’s dream of a professional motorsports career.

Myers father, Jeff Myers Sr., a project manager at MSG states "I feel very fortunate to be an employee of MSG — the company and staff have been huge supporters of my son and my family for the past 10 years. MSG has always given me the time off to travel when my son was racing go-karts on the national circuit across the country. In 2014, we're looking forward to racing across the Midwest with the ARCA Truck Series."
