Manly Man Race Team

Here's some Manly Man Candle Company trivia- We actually sponsored a race team in the Dakar Rally! If you look really, really closely on the front fender of the bike in the picture you'll see a white round sticker on there that says "Manly Man Racing". There are a few more on the bike, but you can't see them in this picture, they were all worn off by the blowing sand about a week into the race. Oh well.

The Dakar Rally runs mostly through Northwestern Africa, and is the most famous race of its type in the world. The guy we sponsored actually finished the race, which is a pretty major accomplishment. Another interesting note- The race was canceled this year because of terrorist threats.

Just thought that was cool. We're looking to do more sponsorships in the future, so if you see a NASCAR team that looks a little manlier than all the rest, it might be us.

But you'll have to smell them to be sure. They'll smell terrific. And manly, which goes without saying.
