OCALA, FL (December 21, 2010)–HITS, Inc. is pleased to announce that DeLuca Toyota will be the title sponsor of the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit’s 30th Anniversary Season Finale, the $100,000 DeLuca Toyota Tundra Grand Prix, presented by Great American Insurance Group on Sunday, March 20 to close out the 2011 show season.

Since 2008, DeLuca Toyota Tundra has been the proud sponsor of this big-ticket event, which in its 13-year history has seen the likes of Aaron Vale, Laura Linback, Ian Silitch, Mike McCormick and Tracy Fenney take home the coveted win. Perhaps even more exciting, once again the $100,000 DeLuca Toyota Tundra Grand Prix, presented by Great American Insurance Group, will be a crucial qualifier for the 2011 Pfizer $1 Million Grand Prix. Last year, Texas’ own Tracy Fenney used her victory in the $100,000 DeLuca Toyota Tundra Grand Prix to propel her to the top of the Pfizer Million Rider Rankings. With a first-place payout of $30,000, it’s safe to say that High-Performance riders looking for their shot at this year’s Pfizer Million will have this event on their radar.

“Deluca Toyota is a proud sponsor of the HITS Ocala Winter Circuit’s $100,000 Grand Prix,” said Bill Morrison, New Cars Sales Manager of DeLuca Toyota. “Our involvement in this program has always been about the people of Ocala. HITS is one of the largest events to affect our city each year, and brings a lot of jobs and income to our community. By supporting this program we support many workers in the community from the rider and trainers, all the way to the person who works at that rider’s favorite restaurant. So in 2011, as well as the last four years, Deluca Toyota is proud to be a sponsor and associate of HITS.”

A testament of their commitment to the Ocala community, DeLuca is also providing the winner of the WTRS Radio Station’s “Ocala is a HIT” National Anthem Contest a check for $500.
