Sneak peak at the 2012 Clint Hatlestad car

It's been a very busy week around the graphic shop with the Hutchinson Race car show this coming Saturday.    The Luke Sathoff graphics are completed and shipped out and Tony Norem's 360 Sprint car is done and ready to go.    Other's getting finished up before the show will be Josh Telecky's, Sarah Voss, Adam Revier, and Greg Jacobsen.

Below is a couple pics of Clint Hatlestad's Modified which is about 90% done and will be on display this weekend in the Hutchinson mall.  The graphics done on Hatlestad's 2012 car was a full wrap as can be seen on the picture's below.
Hatlestad Before

Hatlestad After
Along with Hatlestad at the race car show this weekend in the Hutchinson mall, we are expecting 20 local race cars in attendance.   This event is something that my wife and I, along with numerous friends and family, put on and we encourage everyone to bring the kids and stop by the Hutchinson Mall this Saturday, March 31st.    The show hours are from 10:00 - 5:00.    

This event was started 6 years ago as a memorial for my son Levi.  Levi absolutely loved racing and this is one thing we do to remember Levi and the love and Joy he brought to our lives.  Bring the kids out, as there will again be games, coloring, balloons, and prizes for them.

Here is a couple of vinyl graphic jobs finished this week including a commercial truck for Flatworks Construction as well as Tim Pessek's 2012 Modified.   Later this week we should have the wrap completed on Hatlestad's new Victory car as well as the printed and contour cut graphics for Luke Sathoff.   So stay tuned!!!!!

Want to say a big congrats to Andy Altenburg and Dustin Wannarka for running very strong in Beatrice over the weekend.   In saturday's A-main Andy finished 2nd to the 99 of Damon Murty and looked very strong in his first weekend out.  I talked with Andy and he was very happy with how the racing went.  To watch a video of Saturday's feature go to YouTube and search Spring Nationals Saturday 3/17.  The video is courtesy of Bullet200789.

Racing Season is Here! Well, for some of us.

Derik's Racing Decals is a proud supporter of Andy Altenburg and Altenburg Motorsports and we'd like to wish Andy and Squid good luck this weekend as they head to Beatrice, Nebraska for the Spring Nationals.  If things go well, they will run the weekend after in MO kicking off the USRA Iron Man Series.  Follow Andy and Squid throughout the year at www.altenburgmotorsports.com

Andy has been a long time customer as well as a friend.  He's been a big part of helping with the Memorial car show held here in Hutchinson as well as the race in Fairmont.  Below is a picture of his 2012 car he will be running this season.   After spending the last couple years racing a late model,  he and his brother (Dustin "Squid" Wannarka) have teamed up to compete in the IMCA and USRA stockcar divisions

Here is a picture of Andy's 2011 late model that was wrapped for the USA Nationals held at Ceder Lake Speedway in WI. It was done with the theme of "Never Forgotten" regarding the 10 year memorial of 9-11 with the hood including the twin towers as the "11"

My first blog post!

So here we go!  This is the first blog post done by Derik at Derik's Racing Decals.   Certainly I'm completely new to this, but what you can expect in following us here is some cool designs, neat idea's, and fun to be had.   I'm going to honest,  this was started as a class assignment but I fully believe that this will evolve into a regular platform used in showcasing the projects done by Derik's Racing Decals.

We encourage comments as we are always looking for feedback!  Not all the designs and work will be a favorite of everyone,  that's OK.   But good honest feedback keeps us working hard and always improving.  I must say though...good compliments and people liking the work can be the most rewarding part of our business.

 So...  here's a couple pics of car's done in the past and stay tuned for images of new projects as we complete them.
