Reser’s Fine Foods Increases Sponsorship to Seven Races; GameStop Returns for Seventh Season with 10 Races
Joe Gibbs Racing announces today that Reser’s Fine Foods and GameStop will return in 2014 to sponsor Matt Kenseth in the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota NASCAR Nationwide Series Toyota.
Reser’s Fine Foods will appear on JGR’s No. 20 Toyota seven times during the 2014 season starting with the season opening race at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 22. Meanwhile, GameStop will return for their seventh season with JGR in the Nationwide Series with 10 races that start in Las Vegas on March 8 and conclude with the season finale at Homestead on November 15.
Last season Kenseth returned to drive in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for the first time since a single race in the 2011 season. Kenseth made 16 total starts in 2013 and recorded two wins, seven top-five and 14 top-ten finishes. He gave each of his sponsors a trip to victory lane, winning the July Daytona race with GameStop and giving Reser’s Fine Foods its first ever win in October at Kansas.
“It’s exciting to have GameStop and Reser’s Fine Foods back on board with us this season,” said Kenseth. “They are tremendous partners and I am looking forward to working with Kevin (crew chief Kevin Kidd). Hopefully we can provide a few celebrations for each of them in victory lane this season.”
The No. 20 Reser’s Fine Foods Toyota will appear in seven races in 2014 beginning with the season opener in Daytona on February 22. The seven race schedule for Reser’s Fine Foods is as follows:
|August 9||Watkins Glen|
“We applaud the determination and winning drive Matt and JGR displayed last year,” said Mark Reser, president and CEO of Reser’s Fine Foods. “Sponsoring this championship caliber team helps us increase the visibility of our brands and reach new customers in key markets across the country. It’s a win-win partnership.”
Meanwhile the No. 20 GameStop Toyota will appear in 10 races in 2014 beginning in Las Vegas. The complete schedule for GameStop is as follows:
|March 8||Las Vegas|
“Our GameStop team is thrilled to have Matt back as our driver and for him to be wheeling the No. 20 Toyota again for us,” said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of merchandising for GameStop. “I’ve been a fan of NASCAR for more than 20 years, and the excitement surrounding Matt has never been higher. Of course, it also doesn’t hurt that he is also a huge gamer. I hear he tells people gaming is his ‘homework’ since GameStop is his sponsor. Not only is Matt great for NASCAR, he’s great for GameStop. We look forward to a very successful year with the No. 20 team.”
