eBay Motors, the parts and accessories destination used by millions of car lovers, wrenchers, racers and mechanics, today announces its sponsorship of Sarah and Bridget Burgess for the Oct. 14 ARCA Menards West Series race at The Bullring, Las Vegas, NV. The event marks the first time in NASCAR and ARCA history that a mother and daughter have raced each other in the sport.
“A lot of work has gone into this moment and it’s surreal to know that Bridget and I will both be behind the wheel on the same track in a matter of weeks,” said Sarah Burgess, who will be racing the number 97 eBay Motors Chevrolet SS. “It’s incredible to have the support of eBay Motors. Not only is it a leading brand for professional racers and casual builders – I can say from personal experience that it’s also a community of people who genuinely care about racing and car culture.”
Sarah, a longtime drift and off-road racer, is also a senior business development and partnership manager for eBay Motors where she helps to grow the marketplace’s presence within the industry. Sarah serves as owner of the BMI Racing team and pulls double duty as Bridget’s crew chief on race day. And now, after years of supporting her daughter’s racing aspirations, Sarah is joining Bridget on the oval for the ultimate competition - both sporting the eBay Motors logo.
“The eBay Motors team is made up of car enthusiasts like Sarah,” said Ron Jaiven, GM of P&A, eBay Motors. “Our passion is to support and engage in the automotive community, whether it’s sponsoring events that draw car lovers nationwide or being the source for hard-to-find performance parts. It’s incredible that Sarah and her daughter Bridget will make NASCAR history together. We’re eager to watch their journey to Las Vegas and will be cheering them on from the stands.”
eBay Motors is home to half a billion live listings, including cars and trucks, motorcycles, side-by-sides, ATVs and more, plus all of the parts and accessories that make them run. Three parts or accessories are sold every second on the marketplace which draws some 40 million buyers worldwide. As the platform of choice for gearheads and casual maintainers alike, eBay Motors offers unrivaled selection and value, helping shoppers to find the right part at the right price.
“We have known Sarah as a crew chief, team owner and supportive parent to her daughter Bridget, and now we can’t wait to see her climb into the car to race in Las Vegas,” said Chris Wright, the Series Director of the ARCA Menards Series West. “This will be a historic moment for our sport as we’ll have the first mother-daughter pair racing against each other in a NASCAR touring series division.”
