No Bull: Sheltra Motorsports; Buffalo Wings & Rings Together For Remainder Of 2009 ARCA RE/MAX Series Season

CINCINNATI, Ohio (May 5, 2009) - - Officials from Sheltra Motorsports and Buffalo Wings & Rings officially announced today that the Cincinnati, Ohio based and No. 1 fastest growing restaurant chain in the United States will serve as the primary marketing partner for driver Patrick Sheltra for the remainder of the 2009 ARCA RE/MAX Series (ARS) season beginning with Saturday's Drive Smart! Buckle-Up Kentucky 150 at Kentucky Speedway.

Known for it's "Great Food; No Bull!" campaign, Buffalo Wings & Rings is the fastest-growing privately owned franchised chain of restaurants in the nation serving Buffalo-style chicken wings, onion rings, burgers, chicken and salads. Founded in 1988 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Buffalo Wings & Rings operates 44 franchised restaurants in the United States. The company also ranked in the top 500 franchises in the January 2009 issue of Entrepreneur.

"We are thrilled to be partnered with Buffalo Wings & Rings for the remainder of the 2009 ARCA RE/MAX Series season," said driver Patrick Sheltra. "We gave them their first taste of racing at Salem Speedway in April and we won the race. It was an incredible feeling; we're planning to take them back to victory lane this weekend at Kentucky Speedway."

Sheltra, a native of Indiantown, Florida continued, "This partnership is a perfect match to this race team. They are growing just as we are growing and as Sheltra Motorsports climbs the ladder we would like to bring Buffalo Wings & Rings along for the journey. We are just honored to represent them."

"Buffalo Wings & Rings is proud to be joining Sheltra Motorsports for the 2009 ARCA RE/MAX Series season," said Buffalo Wings & Rings Marketing Manager Charlie Francas. "Patrick excels in the leadership and representation that our company is looking for on and off the track and we are excited about the rest of the season!"

The multi-colored logo sporting the "New" Buffalo in town will be plastered on the hood of Sheltra's No. 60 Dodge Chargers and Chevrolet Monte Carlos SS for the remaining 18 ARCA RE/MAX Series races this year. The establishment's "Great Food; No Bull!" slogan will also be hoisted on the television panel located across the rear of Sheltra's No. 60 entry.

To kick-off the partnership and bring hype to Saturday's race, Sheltra will visit and sign autographs at two of Buffalo Wings & Rings locations surrounding the Northern Kentucky area on Friday, May 8. Sheltra will visit Buffalo Wings & Rings Eastgate Mall (4601 Eastgate Boulevard #C-586, Cincinnati, Ohio 45245) from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sheltra will also visit the Buffalo Wings & Rings Crescent Springs location (2440 High Street, Crescent Springs, Kentucky 41017) from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Friday night.
