Allmendinger Adds Hot Sponsor!

HARRISBURG, N.C. – official team release –

JTG Daugherty Racing officials have added sponsor support from The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce to A.J. Allmendinger’s No. 47 Chevrolet for the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series campaign.

The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce comes to the team through an expanded relationship with Southeastern Mills, as part of efforts to promote the brand along with Better than Bouillon, Shore Lunch Premium Soup Mixes and Southeastern Mills Gravy Mixes at select events this season.

“Southeastern Mills’ business philosophy is in line with ours and we are fortunate to continue to represent a sophisticated food company like theirs and we are pleased to announce the addition of their Original Louisiana Hot Sauce,” JTG Daugherty Racing team owner Tad Geschickter said. “Similar to JTG Daugherty Racing, Southeastern Mills’ started with ‘a vision, entrepreneurial spirit and determination’ and they are certainly a great fit for our racing organization and business model.”

Allmendinger, who has one victory, four pole awards, seven top-five and 39 career top-10 finishes, also welcomed The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce brand to the family.

“Just like The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce, quality and perfection is vitally important to JTG Daugherty Racing as we build fast race cars,” said Allmendinger, who finished eighth in the most recent event at Auto Club Speedway. “It’s been a good start to the season for us and the timing couldn’t be better for The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce to come on board. I really like what I see happening with our race team and how we keep getting stronger each week. The brands within Southeastern Mills (The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce, Better than Bouillon, Shore Lunch and Southeastern Mills) have been great additions to the team and we’re happy to have The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce on our car beginning this week at Martinsville Speedway as part of our program.”

“We are very excited about continuing and expanding our association with the JTG Daugherty Racing family,” Southeastern Mills’ Vice President of Sales Ralph Byers said. “They are a top-notch organization whose culture and values mirror those of our own company. NASCAR and the JTG Daugherty Racing platform provides an excellent means for us to reach and connect with our own consumers and provide exciting in-store sales building opportunities for our retail partners.” (JTG-Daugherty Racing)

Ryan Ellis To Race for BK Racing Beginning at Richmond

Ryan Ellis will return to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series begining at at Richmond in late April. Ryan Ellis, a few months after his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Debut, will return to the wheel of a Sprint Cup car for select races in 2016.
"Four or five years ago, I met Ron Devine and I told him one day I would drive for him. It seemed very far-fetched at the time, but this year it finally came to fruition," Ellis said about his deal with Devine's BK Racing team. It's an amazing opportunity for me and I'm so happy to bring ScienceLogic with me to the BK Racing program," Ellis continued. "I've gotten to know the ScienceLogic employees and brand a lot in the last year, and really feel like part of their family."
"Ryan is a driver that we've been watching for quite some time as he raced in the Trucks and Xfinity," said team owner Ron Devine. "We're proud to bring him to BK Racing this season and welcome ScienceLogic to our family."
"We see a lot of similarities between ScienceLogic and our driver Ryan Ellis - both in our passion for what we do every day and the speed at which we are advancing and growing in our respective professions. ScienceLogic is proud to continue our participation in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series by sponsoring Ryan Ellis and BK Racing this season," said Yama Habibzai, Chief Marketing Officer at ScienceLogic.
Ellis made his NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Debut last season at Phoenix driving the #33 for Circle Sport Racing. The #93 was last ran by Matt DiBenedetto at Daytona where he made the Daytona 500. The #93 is a Non-Chartered Car so Ryan will have to race his way in if there are more that 40 cars entered.
The Science Logic paint scheme you see on the #93 was created by Todd Casteel of Todd Casteel Designs! Amazing work as usual and that car will sure look great going around the Richmond International Speedway! The more sponsorship Ryan gets, The more Ryan races!
We here at The NASCAR News Source are happy to See Ryan back behind the Wheel of in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series! (Koelle,2016)
