Slater Skins has partnered with The Blue Buffalo Co., a family owned premium natural dog/cat food and treats company, to help support North Carolina privateer Ryan Zimmer this weekend at the Unadilla National. Zimmer is returning from a back injury suffered in Monster Energy Supercross.
Slater Skins provides a unique look to the bike, which they feel helps sponsoring companies gain maximum exposure.
"Our products creates a unique marketing platform that gives clients maximum exposure and this sets us apart from any other sports marketers in this class," said John Slater in a team release. "We have approached this market with the same vision that NASCAR has - create a comprehensive mainstream media outlet for high-end corporate clients to provide maximum BRANDING exposure. Blue Buffalo is the perfect fit, and has chosen capitalize on this market where the majority of fans and enthusiasts are pet parents."
"What an exciting opportunity and sport to be a part of! With the ever-expanding mainstream audience that the sport of motocross/supercross is now tapping into, everyone at Blue Buffalo is excited about the chance to advertise and work with John Slater (Slater Skins) and #79 Ryan Zimmer, in this highly brand loyal market." said David Petrie, The Blue Buffalo Co.
