RCR Driver will Carry Quaker State Colors for Four Races
MOORESVILLE, NC (April 7, 2011) – Long-time Paul Menard sponsor Quaker State will continue its relationship with the driver during the 2011 season. Quaker State will come aboard as primary sponsor of the No. 27 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet for four races during the 2011 season.
“I’ve had a long-standing relationship with Quaker State and they’ve been a great sponsor to work with over the years,” commented, driver Paul Menard on the sponsorship. “This year they are on-board the No. 27 for four races – both events at Texas Motor Speedway, at Daytona in July and at Atlanta Motor Speedway. We are running a slightly different paint scheme on the Quaker State/Menards Chevrolet this weekend, which is going to look really sharp under the lights. Texas is fast and fun, and racing at night is going to make it all the more thrilling for the fans and us drivers. It will definitely be an exciting weekend with Quaker State on the car and Texas Motor Speedway’s first night race.”
Menard has had an outstanding start to the 2011 season and currently resides in 13th position after six events heading into Texas this weekend. During the first four races of the season, Paul captured his best career finish at each of those tracks and scored one top-five and two top-ten finishes.
Quaker State and Menard have a relationship on and off the track that dates back 15 years. Their on track partnership began back in 1995 when Menard ran in the IRL Series. As Menard changed gears and made his way into NASCAR, Quaker State followed beginning with a two-year stint in the Nationwide Series and then into the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Much of the technology found in Quaker State’s commercially available motor oils is first put through vigorous on-road testing in various cab fleets across the country, and on the demanding tracks of NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Series. The extremes experienced in racing provide them with severe testing grounds for our lubricants and help us to ensure that they will meet the demands of all motorists – whatever their driving environment.
