GINN CLUBS & RESORTS TO SPONSOR BILL ELLIOTT'S MB2 MOTORSPORTS CHEVROLET IN DAYTONA
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (Feb. 6, 2006) -- MB2 Motorsports announced today that Ginn (pronounced Ghin) Clubs & Resorts will be the primary sponsor on Bill Elliott's No. 36 Chevrolet during Daytona Speedweeks, including the Feb. 11 Budweiser Shootout and the Feb. 19 Daytona 500.
Based in Celebration, Fla., Ginn Clubs & Resorts is a privately held resort development and management firm, specializing in exclusive leisure lifestyle and vacation destination communities in the United States.
"This is our first venture into motorsports sponsorship and what a thrilling beginning," said Bobby Ginn, president and CEO of Ginn Clubs & Resorts. "To be associated with MB2 Motorsports and the legendary Bill Elliott in the Daytona 500 is a tremendous opportunity to convey our message to the worldwide network of NASCAR fans. The partnership will also provide a special excitement to our communities at Ginn Clubs & Resorts."
Elliott, a two-time Daytona 500 winner, said that he is both confident and happy about returning to Daytona International Speedway as the driver of the No. 36 Ginn Clubs & Resorts Chevrolet.
"We had a productive test session last month in Daytona and I am looking forward to having a successful run in the Ginn Clubs & Resorts Chevy," said Elliott, whose last appearance in the Daytona 500 was in 2003. "All systems are go -- we have a first-class sponsor, a top-notch team and a fast racecar."
Elliott, who has run a limited schedule the past two seasons, has amassed an impressive record as a NASCAR Cup driver. Along with winning the 1988 season championship, the redhead from Dawsonville, Ga. has claimed 44 victories, 175 top fives, 319 top 10s, 55 poles and career earnings of nearly $38 million.
Jay Frye, MB2's CEO and general manager, said, "Ginn Clubs & Resorts is a world-class organization and we welcome them to our team. What a great way to kick off a partnership at NASCAR's biggest race of the season."
Along with Elliott and the No. 36 Ginn Clubs & Resorts Chevy, MB2's Daytona 500 lineup will include the No. 01 U.S. Army Chevrolet, driven by Joe Nemechek and the No. 14 Waste Management Chevrolet, driven by Sterling Marlin.
