It will at worse case be a no.
Honestly, I would see about exactly what you want, make the call, explain exactly what you do and how it could promote their product. See if they can sell it to you direct for distributor pricing or as a second choice dealer pricing.
If they won't budge or say buy it retail, no loss, try your second choice setup.
There are pretty much two sides of the fence in a racing environment. Typically the ones involved, but not pleading the poor man racer, can get hooked up in some form. It may be a prearranged deal where you buy it at cost via retailer so you are not buying direct. It's amazing some of the "bro" deals I have seen or been involved with when racing anything with wheels.
