Advantage Trailer Rentals Named Presenting Sponsor of the Alabama Bass Trail
Decatur, Ala. (September 22, 2021) – The Alabama Bass Trail (ABT) and Advantage Trailer Rentals today announced a new partnership naming Advantage Trailer Rentals as presenting sponsor of the competitive team bass fishing trail in 2022.
ABT’s relationship with American Trailer Rentals began in 2019 when Advantage Trailer Rentals CFO Lucas Wright competed on the Trail along with his father. “My father and I have fished the Alabama Bass Trail for two years and have become to know the leadership within the Trail as well as many of the excellent competitors. It is truly a first class organization and the efficiency and technical expertise that is demonstrated throughout this trail is quite frankly an inspiration to all business leaders,” said Wright. “Many of our customers are avid anglers and we think that the exposure that the Trail brings will strengthen our brand as we look to grow our footprint in Alabama and across the southeast.” Wright and his father have plans to fish the trail again in 2022.
“I think one of the biggest compliments from a participating angler is to call and request sponsorship information. That tells me that we made such of an impression on him that he is willing to attach his company’s name and image to the Alabama Bass Trail,” said ABT Program Director Kay Donaldson.
Under the terms of the agreement, Advantage Trailer Rentals will have a booth at all ABT events in 2022. Now in its ninth season, the ABT tournament series is held on eleven different lakes of the ABT beginning February 19, 2022, with the championship tournament to be held on October 21-22, 2022.
