Put-in-Bay OH – Today, organizers of the 9th annual Put-in-Bay Road Races Reunion announced American Modern Insurance Group as Presenting Sponsor for 2017. The event, which takes place August 27-30 on Ohio’s South Bass Island, has already far exceeded all past records for entries.

American Modern is a leading specialty insurance provider for owners of collector cars, motorcycles, and boats, in addition to residential insurance for rental property, vacation homes, standard dwellings, vacant property or mobile homes.

“We are proud to announce our expanded relationship with American Modern,” said event co-founder and race director Jack Woehrle. “Their support will strengthen the Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races; American Modern understands the motivations of the entrants and is enthused to build relationships with our crowd.”Put in Bay Car Show

And that ‘crowd’ is growing, Woehrle says. “This year’s entries are running at least 20 percent ahead of the high-water mark for all previous years. We could easily end up with 100 racing entries this year and 50 non-racing participants. We are prepared for them with more on-track time on an expanded racing circuit, and almost twice the amount of paddock space as in previous years,” noted Woehrle.

Peter Ross shared his 1932 MG 12 Racer at the 2013 PiB Road Races Reunion.

Rick Drewry, Senior Claims Specialist at American Modern, is an entertaining and knowledgeable collector-car expert who is well versed in the intricacies of collector cars and industry trends. An example of Rick’s creative activities is helping spread knowledge and appreciation within the company about what makes the car enthusiast “tick.”  He engages the company’s associates in hands-on efforts to bring trashed-out collector cars back to life.

“Partnering with PiB Road Races Reunion was a natural fit for us,” Drewry said. “We know that owning a collector car is more than just a hobby, it’s a passion; and we’re truly excited to offer our insurance expertise with collector car enthusiasts.”
