Oh sure, it’s easy to poke fun at Marty Roth and his slower method of racing, but believe it or not the man has secured a sponsor. It’s true. is reporting Roth’s shiny red car will be supported by Fountain Powerboats at the season opener this weekend.

"I'm really excited to have Fountain Powerboats on my car for the Homestead-Miami race," Roth said. "I can say based on first-hand experience that Fountain produces absolutely first-class performance boats that are spectacular to drive."
I’d personally like to support the sponsor but unfortunately I live in the desert. However, I still want to do my part to show appreciation for the commitment to Roth, so as long as Fountain Powerboats is “on board” with Moto Marty I will be sure to not only indicate his speed in knots but also his distance in nautical miles. Maybe even fathoms.

    Am I missing Marty in your Class of 2007 lineup? Also, the boat people won't have to worry about a lot of cars crowding around Marty. Good, clear view of his side pods.

    It's my understanding Marty will only be running up to Indy, but if this is incorrect then I will add him. You gotta be in the ICS for the long haul to be on the sidebar.

    All the marginal teams want to run up to Indy for the free tire deal.

    Also, Marty should hire a real driver and stop fooling himself. He's a decent enough amateur, but these are pros.
