Team Full Throttle is proud to announce the addition of 20-year-old Derrick Ramey of Huntersville, N.C. to their roster of racer clients effective immediately. Ramey, known as a top prospect in the Charlotte area currently competing and winning on the dirt in the Open Wheel Modified division, is excited to have the backing of 25-year veteran coach and promotional expert Tom Baker and his associates.
“I’ve known Tom now for a year or two and we’ve talked about getting together for a while. I’m glad that things worked out that he was available now because we have some pretty big things in the works and his expertise in helping me with my image and my communications skills is going to really help me be prepared for what could be coming. I have already started working with Tom and in just a couple of days of meetings I’ve learned a ton. I can’t thank him enough for agreeing to work with My Dad and me.”
For his part, Baker says Ramey is just the first of several new additions to his group expected this offseason. “We’re definitely going to make some changes and additions for 2014,” he confirmed. ” We are considering several new opportunities and have had several applicants. That’s very exciting and humbling for us. Derrick is a driver we’ve been wanting to work with for some time now and the timing just wasn’t right for us to get together. But with what we’ve got going on now with the addition of the ASCS Carolina Sprint Series to our portfolio and RaceChaser Online growing in popularity, we felt it was the time to get together because he also has some potentially big things in his near future and we believe that we can leverage our combined assets to help the overall situation.”
Team Full Throttle will be building Derrick a website, handling all Public Relations and Media services and helping him with brand-building and driver coaching services as well.
