C&M and Wild Duck Racing Celebrate Fourth Year of Sponsorship

C&M Auto is celebrating four years of sponsorship of Jason Pribyl and the Wild Duck Racing Team. Even before we started racing, C&M serviced all of the Pribyl family vehicles, including Jason’s Great Grandmonther. The first direct involvement with kart racing came in 2012 when Jason’s kart developed cracks in the motor mount and chassis. C&M was able to trim the motor mount and weld the cracked frame. In 2013 C&M became a sponsor, and a sticker has been added to all of the Wild Duck Racing karts since then. Throughout the years, the C&M team has also fixed a cracked nerf bar and a broken rear bumper on Jason’s karts. In 2015, Chuck and the C&M team helped put the team into its first racing trailer, inspecting and servicing the wheel bearings.
