Sponsorship Policy

Bowler Performance Transmissions recognizes the importance of providing product for high profile vehicles that will help the company gain visibility and exposure in magazine feature articles and television shows. We receive such a large volume of requests that the company has instituted a policy of requiring a formal, written proposal along with color renderings and/or photos of the proposed project so our review committee can give each request the proper attention and consideration it deserves. Phone call inquiries cannot and will not be accepted. Proposals must include a detailed description of the project, information on who owns the vehicle, list of events/shows/exhibits where the vehicle will appear, other media exposure that will be generated, along with examples of past editorial coverage that the company/individual has achieved so we can be assured of the company/individual's ability to obtain publicity. Bowler Performance Transmissions requires all persons or companies requesting products to agree to, and follow, the guidelines listed below:
