Story By: TYLER ALTMEYER / TEAM 73 – SHEBOYGAN, WI – Transitioning into the new year in a big way, Sheboygan, Wisconsin’s Scotty Thiel is pleased to welcome Walker’s Game Ear, Stealth Cam, and Muddy Outdoors to Team 73 for the 2022 season, set to debut during All Star Circuit of Champions competition at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia, on Friday and Saturday, February 4-5.
Three major subsidiaries of the ever-growing GSM Outdoors family, Walker’s Game Ear, Stealth Cam, and Muddy Outdoors will not only bring valued support to Team 73 as they compete head-to-head with the best winged sprint car teams in the country, but they will simultaneously promote a vast catalog of high quality outdoor products that will prove essential to race fans and outdoor enthusiasts alike.
“I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Walker’s Game Ear, Stealth Cam, and Muddy Outdoors to Team 73 for the 2022 season,” Scotty Thiel said. “This has been in the works for a few weeks, so to finally have the chance to break the news is a dream come true. I’m confident we can do wonders for their brands, especially among sprint car fans. Sprint car fans are some of the most brand loyal people on the planet and I know they’ll join me in promoting those who support our sport. It’s my job to represent their brands at the highest level, and that’s exactly what we plan to do.”
“We are thrilled to connect with Scotty Thiel and Team 73. They are great competitors and a great fit for Walker’s Game Ear, Stealth Cam, and Muddy Outdoors…we’re ready to get this journey started,” Chris Dunkin said, Marketing Manager at GSM Outdoors. “Having the opportunity to promote our product line at short tracks across the country is something we could not refuse, especially with Walker’s Game Ear being such a great fit for your everyday race fan.”
Although Stealth Cam and Muddy Outdoors promote products that are directly correlated with hunting and wildlife surveillance, complete with wireless and cellular game cameras, as well as top of the line hunting blinds and tree stands, Walker’s Game Ear boasts a product line that can be utilized at the track, as well as on the range. Widely considered the industry standard for hearing safety and enhancement, Walker’s Game Ear gives short track enthusiasts a new avenue for ear protection, offering a hot commodity of electronic muffs, electronic earbuds, ear plugs, and youth accessories.
“Walker’s, Stealth, and Muddy each offer great, quality products…I’m not only excited to promote them, but I’m also excited to use them,” Thiel added. “As a hunter, there’s nothing more appealing to me than having the chance to hunt a Wisconsin whitetail that I captured on my Stealth Cam out of a Muddy blind. But as a racer, and a husband and a father, protecting my ears, as well as my family’s ears, is important, and Walker’s is just what we need.”
As mentioned, Scotty Thiel and Team 73 plan to activate their 2022 campaign with All Star Circuit of Champions competition in the Peach State, transitioning their focus to Volusia Speedway Park shortly thereafter. A final schedule of events will be unveiled in the coming weeks. “Big Wheel” fans are encouraged to keep alert online for continuing updates pertaining to his upcoming agenda.
