CONCORD, N.C – Chip Ganassi Racing has partnered with Nashville-based entertainment powerhouse BBR Music Group to sponsor the No. 42 Chevrolet Camaro driven by Tyler Reddick in select NASCAR XFINITY Series races this year.
The car will feature the multi-media superstar Trace Adkins for the season-opening XFINITY Series race at Daytona Int’l Speedway on Feb. 25.
BBR Music Group, a BMG company, includes Broken Bow Records, Stoney Creek Records, Red Bow Records, Wheelhouse Records and publishing company Magic Mustang Music.
“After meeting with Chip Ganassi I’m proud to sponsor Tyler with such a world class racing organization. It was obvious to me that Chip is as passionate about winning in the racing industry as I am in the music industry,” said Benny Brown, founder of the BBR Music Group. “He puts forth all the team effort to win and that’s what made me feel that his team was a great fit and that Tyler could build his future with this organization. I’m proud to be associated with a partner of Chip’s caliber.”
“We’re excited to welcome BBR Music Group to Chip Ganassi Racing,” added Chip Ganassi Racing President Steve Lauletta. “Country music and NASCAR fans go hand-in-hand, so we’re happy to bring that connection even closer to the fans of our sport. In addition, we are thrilled to see what Tyler Reddick will do on track as part of our team competing for an XFINITY Series owner’s championship in 2017.”
Reddick moves over to Chip Ganassi Racing after three years of competition in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series with Brad Keselowski Racing. In 63 NCWTS starts, Reddick scored three wins, three poles, 25 top-five and 40 top-10 finishes, with a best points finish of second in 2015.
The 21-year-old from Corning, California will share the No. 42 car with Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson.
“I’m honored for this tremendous opportunity to compete the in the XFINITY Series with a great team, Chip Ganassi Racing. I’ve been very fortunate to have BBR Music Group come back on-board this year,” said Reddick. “We’ve had the opportunity to have some very popular and up-in-coming artists on the car, including Trace Adkins for the first time in Daytona. The expectations will be high, since we’ve won races on dirt and asphalt. It’d be great to repay the folks who made this happen with a strong season.”
