(MOORESVILLE, N.C. - January 15, 2013) - Spraker Racing Enterprises is pleased to announce that Mountain Dew will proudly be on board the 08 Ford Fusion driven by Martinsville, Virginia's Clay Campbell in selected ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards events in 2013.
"We are extremely proud to have the Mountain Dew brand on board with Clay at the wheel of our cars in 2013," Jeff Spraker said.
The team's first outing for 2013 will be the 50th annual Lucas Oil 200 presented by MAVTV American Real at Daytona Int'l Speedway.
"Clay ran Talladega with us last year and did a great job."
The team tested at Daytona in December, ending up sixth fastest overall among the 60-plus drivers that were there. The Spraker Racing Roush-Yates powered Fusion was the fastest Ford at the test.
"Mountain Dew is proud to sponsor Clay Campbell in the number 08 Spraker Racing Ford Fusion for 2013 season," said Greg Sterling, Vice President of field marketing for Pepsico.
"It is a great fit and partnership for the Dew Brand. This marks our second year with Clay and Spraker Racing and we are thrilled to be a part of their racing family. We look forward to an exciting racing season and seeing the Dew car in victory lane."
Campbell, when he's not strapped inside a racecar, is the President of Martinsville Speedway.
"Daytona is a very prestigious speedway and I look forward to have Mountain Dew join us for my first outing there," Campbell said. "We have a great sponsor with a strong team of experience. We are looking forward to the opportunity to run up front. Daytona is very important to Jeff, and I and we want nothing more than to have a shot at a win."
The Lucas Oil 200 presented by MAVTV American Real will get the green flag on February 16th and will be televised live on SPEED. The race will precede the same-night NASCAR Sprint Unlimited.
