BASS announced Monday that Marine Formula STA-BIL® will join the organization as the title sponsor for the Bassmaster Elite Series’ May 7-10 Southern Challenge. The Marine Formula STA-BIL Southern Challenge will take place on Alabama’s Lake Guntersville and is the fifth of eight stops of the Bassmaster Elite Series regular season. This marks the first BASS event sponsorship for the Chicago-based company.
“We are very pleased to sponsor the Bassmaster Elite Series’ Southern Challenge this year,” said Jennifer Robertson, brand manager, STA-BIL. “Marine Formula STA-BIL was specifically developed to keep avid fisherman and boaters like these guys out on the water day in and day out without any fuel-related issues. This tournament is a perfect fit for the STA-BIL brand.”
The sponsorship agreement includes a presence across BASS’ multimedia assets, including The Bassmasters on ESPN2, Bassmaster Magazine and Bassmaster.com. STA-BIL will also receive on-site exhibit space at the Southern Challenge out of Guntersville, Ala.
“STA-BIL continues to identify ways to benefit the angling community, said Tom Ricks, vice president and general manager, ESPN Outdoors and BASS. “BASS members and fans can certainly appreciate their commitment to keeping anglers on the water longer.”
Marine Formula STA-BIL Ethanol Treatment provides year-round protection against corrosion from ethanol-caused water build up in marine gas tanks and fuel lines. Compared to Regular STA-BIL, the Marine Formula has twice the corrosion inhibitors and also contains more than four times the fuel system cleaning additives to keep the intake valves and fuel injectors clean for improved engine performance.
