June 2022 Gazette: NOCO Joins Sports Car Races

NOCO Joins Sports Car Races as “Presenting Sponsor”

We are pleased to announce that The NOCO Company has signed on as Presenting Sponsor of the 2022 Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races.

Founded in 1914, The NOCO Company (“NOCO”) is based in the Cleveland, Ohio area and is a leading global designer and producer of a broad range of highly innovative consumer battery chargers, tenders and related products. NOCO’s compact, hand-held battery chargers under the brand names Genius, GeniusPro, BoostX, Boost Max and others are helping batteries do their jobs the world over. The company also provides battery tender products to many automotive brands.

Even vintage racers use modern batteries,” notes Jonathan Nook, NOCO Chief Vision Officer and President. “So we think the NOCO product line is a natural fit with the Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races and with the competitors who come to the event from all over North America to share in this great local tradition of racing at “The Bay.”

The 2022 Put-in-Bay Vintage Sports Car Races are set to take place on Ohio’s South Bass Island September 20-22 with racing at the Put-in-Bay Airport on Wednesday and Thursday, September 21 & 22. Featured Marques for the event, as announced in late November, are MGs and Triumphs including “specials” running MG or Triumph engines.

The Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races take place on Ohio’s South Bass Island where small-bore sports cars raced through the streets of the village of Put-in-Bay from 1952 to 1959 and one last time in 1963. Today’s races take place on a challenging 1.2-mile hay bale-lined course at the island’s airport. Unique in vintage racing in many ways, the Put-in-Bay event offers entry options for racing-, exhibition- and non-racing enthusiasts plus an entrants car show, tours of the original street course, social events and the unexplainable and often hysterical “rocker cover races,” As always, spectators are free to come and watch.
