We’ve got exciting news, State Racing fans! Today, State Water Heaters announced the extension of their partnership with Stewart-Haas Racing, the title-winning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, and their primary sponsorship of SHR’s No. 39 Chevrolet, driven by Ryan Newman.
So now, in addition to serving as the primary sponsor for Newman during the Oct. 25-27 Sprint Cup race weekend at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway, State will also serve as the primary sponsor on the No. 39 Chevrolet for the Sept. 27-29 Sprint Cup race weekend at Dover (Del.) International Speedway. Next weekend!
“The extension of our sponsorship with Stewart-Haas Racing and Ryan Newman is a testament to how well our partnership is working,” said Jeff Storie, senior manager of contractor and brand marketing for State Water Heaters. “Here at State, we have a passion for motorsports, and as a result of that passion, we’ve been able to raise a great deal of awareness among thousands of NASCAR fans about our products, but most importantly, our loyal contractors.”
State Water Heaters remains an associate sponsor of Stewart’s No. 14 Bass Pro Shops/Mobil 1 Chevrolet and Newman’s No. 39 Quicken Loans Chevrolet.
In celebration of this extended sponsorship, we’re kicking off a new social media initiative that we’re proud to announce here on the blog first! Here at State, we use the tagline ‘Solid. State.’ to encompasses our brand identity, so in keeping with that mentality, we’re launching the “Solid Moments” campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
Your job? Just log on and share with us some of your favorite Ryan Newman moments from this season or seasons past. We’d even love to hear about your own personal “solid moments!” Just use the hashtag #solidmoments and we look forward to hearing from you!
The next race in The Chase for the 2013 Sprint Cup is the Sylvania 300. Tune in to ESPN this Sunday, Sept. 22 at 2 p.m. EST to watch Ryan Newman at the ‘Magic Mile,’ or as it’s officially known, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway! Here’s hoping for a lot of #solidmoments this weekend!
