“We see our partnership with Elite Motorsports as an exciting way to link our transportation roots with the fast-paced growth and market diversification we’ve experienced over the past year,” said Jerry White, PEOPLEASE CEO and President. “PEOPLEASE’s customizable suite of services and consultative approach to revenue growth aligns perfectly with the high-performance standards set forth by Elite Motorsports.”

Celebrating 35 percent growth in the fourth quarter of 2018, PEOPLEASE offers comprehensive business and risk management solutions to clients of all sizes across of variety of industries.

After meeting with them earlier this year, Elite Motorsports team owner Richard Freeman came away thoroughly impressed with what the company had to offer. The South Carolina-based company delivers a variety of services, including risk management, compliance, payroll, and financial solutions as well as human resources and benefits management.

“We’re thrilled to team up with the amazing people at PEOPLEASE,” Freeman said. “What they offer is amazing, and everyone in the pits at an NHRA national event needs to take a look at what they do. This fits right in to everything we do and all of it flows together. I think every team owner out there should take a look at what they have to offer, and we’re looking forward to giving them the chance to do so.”

Enders, two-time NHRA Pro Stock World Champion (2014 & 2015) will race in both Pro Mod and Pro Stock at the NHRA Gatornationals.  It also marks a perfect opportunity for executives at PEOPLEASE to attend their first drag race.

“It’s super exciting to have them coming to Gainesville,” Freeman said. “These are fantastic people, and we’re looking forward to introducing them to the sport of drag racing. All of us get used to everything that goes on at the drag strip, a little desensitized to it, and it’s nice to get a little reminder about how big all this is and how exciting it is when you bring people out to the track who’ve never been before. All of our partners, honestly, they’re part of our family – that’s how we view them, and we’re looking forward to spending the weekend with them at the Gators.”
