HCP Designs Joins Family of ECS Sponsors

CHESHIRE, Conn. (Nov. 14, 2011) - Inside the world of snowmobile racing, everything is about color. Sled manufacturers are usually identified by a distinctive color, while sponsors all have their own easily identifiable logos with specific colors, as well.

Among the most colorful items widely used in snocross racing are helmets, with high-end artwork making them very attractive. One of the nation's finest sources for custom helmet designs is now supporting our sport, as HCP Designs joins East Coast Snocross (ECS) as a new sponsor for the 2011-2012 season.

HCPhelmetHCP Designs is owned and operated by Chad Harris, of Holland, Michigan. Harris, 30, has raced motocross since he was young and painted his first helmet at age 12. He started HCP Designs in 2001, growing steadily with expanded market share in both snocross and motocross.

"We're excited to have such a talented designer join our growing family of sponsors," said ECS president Bob Roscoe. "Chad does excellent work, and our racers appreciate what he can do to a helmet. To have HCP Designs on board for the coming season is a great boost. We all welcome Chad to the family and urge our teams and fans to consider his services."

Harris enjoys the work snocross has provided for his company. In the months of September, October and November, HCP cranks out about five months worth of work. It can be stressful, yet Harris breathes a sigh of relief once orders are filled and teams head for Duluth.
