San Diego, CA (Sept. 6, 2018) – Dakota Dickerson Racing announced today the addition of Austin-based Belterra Eyecare, as a new sponsor for the remainder of the 2018 F4 U.S. Championship season. One of Dickerson’s present supporters Roxanna Balden Anslyn (@RoxBalden) of RoxBalden LLC domiciled in Austin, Texas played an important role in making this happen.
The young California driver was delighted to welcome the new sponsor. "It is really exciting to have the generous support of another Austin, TX based company,” he said. Having Belterra Eyecare come on board is crucial in insuring we are able to fight for the championship in the final weekends of the F4US Championship. Belterra offers top quality support and service to all of their customers in the Austin area and I hope to make them proud in the coming weeks!”

We know he is a talented upcoming driver, and we decided we wanted to come on board and help him out with some support. We’re excited to be part of Dakota Dickerson Racing and his Team, and look forward to seeing him race at COTA during the F1 race weekend in October.
