I wish you luck in your search, but I highly doubt you will get any sponsors.

You have to look at their point of view, how are they going to benefit from sponsoring you

Yeah you arent gonna get sponsors until you get out there and do something on your own. You have to prove yourself before they will even look at you.

Take Brian Jelich for example. He was out there racing and showing what he could do before he picked anyone up.

A 10 second 7.3 isnt cheap by any means. You could buy a house cheaper in some areas

And to echo what Dave said, its highly unlikely that a sponsor will take you from stock to bad azz. You have to put in the time, money, blood, sweat, and tears (and have something to show for it in terms of recognition) before most companies will even look at you.

You got to spend a buttload of money before you get sponsored... and even then it is tough

One thing you can do is write to companies and propose that you will do a write up/etc on the install on all the forums you are a member of. Plus you will not get anything for free, you will get a discount, and even then it may not be much. Good luck...
