Inking a deal with Velocity Racing Development in late 2019, up and coming motorsports driver Erik Evans is patiently waiting for his first wheel-to-wheel action of the 2020 F4 United States Championship Powered by Honda season. With the start of the year put on hold due to COVID-19, Evans has leveraged the extra downtime to form a winning partnership with STORM + SAVAGE™, a lifestyle t-shirt company founded by former US Secret Service Officer, Jeff Hopeck.

“I can’t wait for the season to start so I can begin sporting my new STORM + SAVAGE gear throughout paddocks in North America,” explained Evans, a triple podium winner from the Yacademy F4 Winter Series just over a month ago. “STORM + SAVAGE’s vision to communicate the image and voice of their athletic and sports minded following through graphic t-shirts crosses over perfectly with our motorsports community. And, few words that I can think of represent me better as a racer than their slogan, The Beast Within™.”

“With the help of my trusted partners, Chris and Pat Scully, STORM + SAVAGE has enjoyed super-fast growth in the online apparel vertical,” explains Hopeck. “Our engaged, hardworking, and loyal following will most certainly get along well with the motorsports community. As we continue to be blessed with unprecedented growth, STORM + SAVAGE wants to encourage and support Erik’s unstoppable rise within the F4 and motorsports ranks.”

Designed to represent The Beast Within, each and every STORM + SAVAGE tee shirt is both fierce and beautiful printed on some of the softest tees available in the graphic tee industry. With a clothing line for men, women and kids, STORM + SAVAGE also offers custom designed clothing, hats and even gift cards via their website at

Evans added, “A huge thank you to STORM + SAVAGE Founder and President Jeff Hopeck, and his partners Chris and Pat Scully, for their support and encouragement as I move into my first full season of racing. I promise to represent their brand well, and to unleash my Beast Within on the racetrack.”
