Mendana Racing and Hondros Education Group Look to School the Field in 2017

May 26, 2017

Mendana Racing Enterprises welcomes new sponsor.

With the 2017 USF1 Powerboat season rapidly approaching, Mendana Racing is thrilled to welcome the Columbus, OH based Hondros Education Group on board as a new season-long sponsor for the team.  With a new look and a revised schedule for 2017, a new sponsor adds to what has been an exciting build up going into week one in LaPorte, IN.

"We are very excited to have Hondros join forces with us this year." Commented Jose Mendana, Jr, who will compete under the Hondros Education Group banner for the entire season.  "This is their debut in a sponsorship role in any form of motorsports.  We are eager to show the fun and excitement that comes along with Formula 1 tunnelboat racing and OPC racing in general."

Tina Lapp, President of Hondros Education Group shared the though process behind the organization's decision to sign up for this new and exciting opportunity.  "Although we provide education resources and compete on a national scale, our company's roots are in the Midwest and East Coast where most of the races are held" added Lapp.  "We saw an opportunity to support one of our key associates as well as support activities in the communities we serve.  Life is a work-life balance and this sponsorship helps demonstrate our company values and our commitment to what we believe for our associates, students, and business partners alike."

Hondros Education Group is the combination of five individual education providing entities.  Hondros College of Business, CompuCram, Hondros Learning, Learn Mortgage, Blue Ocean Coding, and the Arizona School of Real Estate & Business all play integral roles in achieving educational goals on a nationwide platform.  With over 50 years of experience, Hondros is viewed as the premier real estate, appraisal, and mortgage education provider, offering online courses, exam prep, textbooks, and classrom solutions.  They educate and provide exam prep to over 1 million students nationwide every year and partner with over 200 resellers throughout the United States to make the best education available in all markets.

The 2017 campaign kicks off in a few short weeks in the beautiful Midwest town of LaPorte, Indiana on the waters of Stone Lake for the fifth-consecutive Maple City Grand Prix.  The event begins with the traditional boat parade through downtown LaPorte followed by the annual block party on June 9th.  Action begins on the water the morning of June 10th, with the finals taking place the afternoon of June 11th.
