Shane Kline, an American cyclist, actively competing to qualify for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo Japan as a member of the US Olympic track cycling team.

Since then, Kline has been racing key USA Cycling events throughout the US, including select international track racing events. We are honored to be sponsoring an ambitious athlete like Kline, and we are rooting for him as he chases his Olympic Dream!

Proud Sponsor of Sage Karam

Sage Karam, an American racecar driver from Pennsylvania, rooted in karting, quickly moved up the ranks after the 2010 US F2000 National Championship by winning nine of the twelve races and the pole in all but one race and dominated the championship. With efforts noticed, Sage received an invite into the Road to Indy program where he began competing in the Star Mazda Championship series, going on to win back-to-back races, fifth in the series and awarded rookie of the year. After two seasons he transitioned into Indy Lights for a single season followed by fulfilling his lifelong dream of racing in the IndyCar Series, starting in 2014. Additionally, Sage competed in several endurance sportscar races in the United SportsCar Championship, including the 24hrs of Daytona. To date, Sage has competed in five of the last Indy 500’s.

2018 is marked as a pivotal year as SmartStop began sponsoring Sage to fulfill his lifelong dream of racing Indy Car full time. For 2019, SmartStop ramped up efforts in fulfilling his dream by campaigning a complete SmartStop livery for the 2019 Honda Indy in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Proud Sponsor of Jessica Klejka

SmartStop is proud to sponsor Jessica Klejka, Alaskan born, musher and veterinarian, actively training to race in "The Last Great Race on Earth" 2019 Iditarod. What started off as mushing smaller teams from her father's recreational team, blossomed into a Dr. of Veterinarian Medicine career coupled with a continued dedicated commitment to pursuing her lifelong dream of competing in the Iditarod. SmartStop is honored to be apart of Jessica's rookie debut in the Iditarod as she mushes her TailWind Kennel team from Anchorage, in south central Alaska, to Nome on the western Bering Sea coast. A race covering 1,000 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer.
