BUSH'S BAKED BEANS STRENGTHENS PARTNERSHIP WITH JTG DAUGHERTY RACING TO BECOME PRIMARY SPONSOR OF THE NO. 47 TOYOTA FOR MULTIPLE NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES EVENTS
HARRISBURG, N.C. (January 13, 2010) - - Today JTG Daugherty Racing team officials are proud to announce Bush Brothers and Company's Bush's Baked Beans brand will be a primary sponsor of Marcos Ambrose and the No. 47 Toyota team for five primary races and will also serve as an associate sponsor during the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
"We are proud to enter our ninth season as partners with JTG Daugherty Racing and thrilled to have Marcos as our driver," said Ray Kielarowski, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bush Brothers and Company. "We look forward to kicking off the new season at the track and sharing the Winner's Circle with him in 2010."
Bush's Baked Beans will be positioned on Ambrose's No. 47 Toyota's hood for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events at Talladega Superspeedway on April 25, Richmond International Raceway on May 1, Bristol Motor Speedway on August 21, New Hampshire Motor Speedway on September 19 and Dover International Speedway on September 26.
Ambrose, who finished 18th in the championship standings, was pleased to hear the news.
"This is really great news," Ambrose said. "I've always been a big fan of Bush's Baked Beans. Because I love the outdoors, I really enjoying firing up the grill with my family and we always include Bush's Baked Beans as a side item after we finish up grilling with Kingsford® Charcoal. It doesn't matter if we are at home or at the track, grilling is a great experience all season long."
Tad Geschickter, co-owner of JTG Daugherty Racing, has been partners with Bush Brothers and Company for nearly a decade.
"Bush's Baked Beans is a great family brand," said Geschickter. "It fits really well with our partner Kingsford® Charcoal. You need Bush's Baked Beans on the side of your plate for every grilling occasion. They've been tremendously loyal to us and this is their ninth season in sponsorship with JTG Daugherty Racing. They have committed more resources to their program for 2010 than they ever have to really step up their involvement. We are pleased they are seeing their program pay dividends. We are happy Bush's Baked Beans are going to be a bigger part of the sponsorship portfolio for our racing organization this year."
Thanks in part to Bush's Baked Beans' support, Ambrose posted impressive finishes during his first season of full-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition. After making history as the first Australian driver to compete in the Daytona 500, he became increasingly versatile and amassed four top-five, seven top-10 and 14 top-15 finishes. He recorded his career-best NASCAR Sprint Cup Series finish at Watkins Glen International with a runner-up finish on the heels of his second-career NASCAR Nationwide Series victory finish with JTG Daugherty Racing.
Ambrose is proud to represent and continue his relationship with Bush's Baked® Beans during the 2010 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
