Spending money on a good name and logo is key. If you are going to base your identity on your name then realize you will be the one that has to not only win races,  but be at every poster signing, baby kissing, glad handing event that your sponsors require. Think about all the uses that your logo will have to work on; The side of a vehicle, team uniforms, stickers, etc.
