VERNON, NY – Ted’s Body Shop came aboard in a big way in 2018 at the Utica-Rome Speedway by taking title sponsorship of the DIRTcar Pro Stock division. After a successful first year, the family owned business is returning for a second season as the presenting sponsor.
The business, located in New Berlin, N.Y., has always taken an interest in racing. Over the years they have had their name proudly displayed on the side of several race cars that have competed at the Utica-Rome Speedway. In 2018, the business adorned the side of the Pro Stock track champion Travis Welch and second high point man Mike Welch. For Travis it was his first ever Utica-Rome Speedway championship.
Ted’s Body Shop, located on 90 South Main Street in the small community of New Berlin, has been family owned and operated for over 33 years. They do full auto body repair as well as operating a full mechanical repair shop. They also offer New York State Inspections. Ted’s Body Shop can also provide rental cars and towing services if necessary. Ted’s Body Shop is part of the NAPA AutoCare network of trusted, locally owned repair facilities.
