Midland Sportscards is a division of Midland Printing Co., we are a full line commercial printing company as well as carrying promotional product and advertising specialties. Bottom line, if you need it printed, we can handle it. Business cards to posters, key chains, stadium cups, fold up coolies, letterheads and newsletters, we can do it all.
When Midland Printing opened, the mission statement was; “Get a quality printed product to our customers. What they need, when they need it.” That was in 1973 and that has been our business philosophy ever since. In 2004 I decided to start a new division. My passion and appreciation for all motor sports is where the Midland Sportscards idea came from. After 17 years in the printing business, I finally found something fun to do with it. Over the past few years this exposure to the monster truck world has been more fun than I could have ever imagined. It made me want to be more involved and the MTRA Sponsorship is a great way to show my support.
Thanks for this opportunity,
Midland Printing Co.

Truk Wurks LLC of Greencastle, IN is proud to announce their 2009 MTRA Monster Discount program is still available!
“Although the Truk Wurks monster truck team has been a member of the MTRA for several years now, we decided to use our 4-wheel drive & off-road retail store to help benefit all members of the MTRA,” said Truk Wurks general manager Greg Adams. So what prompted the decision to sign the Truk Wurks Off-Road shop up as an MTRA Sponsor Member? “One of the things that MTRA members always seem to get asked is ‘what does the MTRA do for me?’ or ‘what do I get for joining the MTRA?” explained Adams . “So what we are trying to do now is not just encourage people in the industry to join the MTRA, but to reward and support our existing membership. And we are going to do that by offering members the ability to purchase thousands of parts and accessories through us via our network of established distributors at a discounted price. We aim to save MTRA members an average of 10-20% off the suggested retail price on these items. In many instances, we can even have the parts drop-shipped straight to a member’s house or shop!”
This discounted purchase program, nicknamed the “Truk Wurks Monster Discount Program”, will make literally thousands upon thousands of parts from hundreds of the world’s top manufacturers available to MTRA members at prices that will help them stretch their dollars further than they could ordering from catalogs or large online retailers. “This program isn’t strictly limited to performance parts or parts that are applicable to monster trucks. We’re running the whole gamut here…from ARP head studs to K&N filters to Westin nerf bars, we want to help everyone get the stuff they need and want without breaking their wallet,” said Adams.
Any MTRA members wishing to learn more about this new program are encouraged to contact the Truk Wurks team via phone or email. Even if you aren’t sure exactly what part or accessory you want or need, the team can use their hands-on experience and vast parts catalogue to help you figure it all out.
“I really hope that our new Monster Discount Program will not only benefit the MTRA as a whole, but that it will encourage other retail business owners in the MTRA to step up and offer discount programs of their own, for the betterment of the entire organization,” said Truk Wurks owner Zach Adams . “This is a pretty small industry, so anything we can do to help each other out should really be looked into. This might be a small step, but we think it’s a step in the right direction.”
You can contact the Truk Wurks staff through email at email@example.com or by phone at 765.653.5637. Visit Truk Wurks online at www.TrukWurksOffRoad.com.
The 2009 Monster Nationals indoor season is in the books and MTRA Drivers Doug Noelke and Jocelyn Perrin have successfully defended their respective racing and freestyle titles. Each driver dominated in their respective category this year, with Doug driving the MTRA certified Tail Gator to the Racing Championship and Jocelyn driving the MTRA certified High Maintenance to the Freestyle Championship.
In a season overshadowed by the loss of Monster Nationals promoter and MTRA President George Eisenhart, the Monster Nationals family banded together and put together a first quarter full of great events he would have been proud of. A heartfelt congratulations to our friends Doug and Jocelyn from all of us with the MTRA on their great accomplishments this year.
The 2009 Checkered Flag Productions Monster Truck Winter Nationals season was filled with intense competition and highlighted by a hard fought battle for the championship. The season culminated with the Monster Truck Grand Nationals Championship event this past weekend in Pocatello, ID where MTRA drivers Larry Swim and Jon Zimmer entered the weekend 1-2 in points.
Each driver excelled all season long, and wouldn’t you know it, they ended up paired together in the first round of racing in a match-up that would have huge championship implications. Larry Swim charged into the corner with Bigfoot Bad Boy while Zimmer swung wide and that is the moment that would decide the race as Swim charged ahead to the victory putting Amsoil Shock Therapy out in the first round. Swim would go on to prevail in both the racing and freestyle competitions, easily defending his points lead and clinching the 2009 Monster Truck Winter Nationals championship!
A big congratulations to the whole Bigfoot 4×4 team from all of us with the MTRA on their big victory!
