Red Horse Racing announced today that JACOB Companies, a multifaceted construction firm with a focus on construction management, design, and technology, will partner with Ben Kennedy in 2016. The multi-race sponsorship of the No. 11 JACOB Companies Toyota Tundra will kick off with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway on Friday, February 19.
"I'm thrilled to have JACOB Companies on board our Toyota Tundra for 2016," Kennedy said. "We've had the opportunity over the past couple of months to work with them and get to know them and I'm really looking forward to our partnership. I think we'll have a lot of success on and off the track with them this season."
This is the nationwide construction company's first foray into sponsorship in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, but Don Perry, company president, is excited to partner with an up-and-coming young driver in Kennedy.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to sponsor Ben this season." Perry said. "He exemplifies the foundation our business was built on--respect, hard work, perseverance, and dedication. His excitement and enthusiasm for the sport compliments the way we feel not only about NASCAR but about our construction projects. He is just the kind of young man we want to represent and act as an ambassador for our company. We can't wait to see him and the JACOB truck in the winner's circle."
Live coverage of the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway on Friday, Feb. 19 begins at 7:30 p.m. EST on FOX Sports 1.
