Solid Start sponsoring Garrett Smithley at Daytona; donating hood to National Breast Cancer Foundation

This week Rick Ware Racing (RWR) and driver Garrett Smithley announced a partnership with longtime partner Solid Start and their lineup of automotive additives True Brand, at Saturday’s Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

Solid Start has donated the hood of the car to National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF). One of National Breast Cancer Foundation’s top priorities is educating women on what they can do to be proactive with their breast health. Knowledge and early detection save lives and NBCF strives to educate and help women right now.

“1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer and they say the best chance of survival is early detection,” said Amber Kossak, owner of Solid Start. “We decided to partner with National Breast Cancer Foundation because they save lives now by helping women who cannot afford a mammogram.”

Solid Start is female owned and operated, and our legacy of automotive excellence dates back to 1976 and continues today with a family of products designed to effectively enhance performance and extend engine life. From our humble beginnings in the Willis family garage in Florida so many years ago, Amber Kossak and Crystal Mathews set out to build a solid foundation of trust, confidence, and value with a line of solid products that is unmatched in the industry by adhering to one simple philosophy: “Truth is not just a way of business – it’s a way of life.”

They not only manufacture a full line of automotive treatments, supplements and performance additives, but also provide complete in-depth, hands-on training for our entire product line. In addition to their unparalleled customer service, their research and development team consistently works to ensure that they are more than able to handle today’s automotive technology and are prepared for the technological advances of tomorrow. Our level of dedication to our customers resulted in Solid Start being named the 2015 Vendor of the Year for both the Automotive Oil Change Association and Grease Monkey International.

“Solid Start and their True Brand products have been a great partner for both myself and Rick Ware Racing,” said Garrett Smithley. “I’m excited to have them on our No. 53 car this weekend at the World Center of Racing, Daytona International Speedway. It’s an honor to also support National Breast Cancer Foundation. It’s extremely special that Amber Kossak and Crystal Mathews from Solid Start have donated the hood to such a great cause.”

Watch the RWR No. 53 True Brand / NBCF Chevrolet at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., this Saturday, August 28, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. on NBC.
