Accell Construction made a three-race commitment with Tommy Baldwin Racing adding to the Oklahoma-based company’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) program. David Reutimann will pilot the No. 10 Accell Construction Chevrolet at Martinsville Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway and Kansas Speedway.
Accell Construction, an Oklahoma-based company, sponsored the No. 10 Chevrolet at Phoenix International Raceway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Auto Club Speedway. Continuing to see an increase in interest of the company, Accell Construction decided to extend their relationship with the NSCS team.
The 20-year-old company also sponsored the TBR No. 36 Chevrolet for six primary events, as well as associate races, last season. Accell Construction, a full-service site civil contractor for the pipeline terminal and bulk storage industries, specializes in tank farm construction, tank foundations and other related site civil construction.
“Accell Construction is proud to represent the pipeline terminal and bulk storage construction industry in the NASCAR world,” explained Steve Todhunter, owner of Accell Construction. “Texas and Kansas are like hometown tracks for us, so we are looking forward to competing there. We enjoy taking our customers out to celebrate racing in the Midwest. We have had a good time working with TBR over the past two seasons and are excited to continue that relationship.”
With Accell Construction on board for three of the four races with Reutimann behind the wheel, the No. 10 team worked to overcome early bad luck. The Zephyrhills, Fla., native drove into the 34th position in NSCS Owner Points. The point position will lock the Accell Construction team into the Goody’s Fast Relief 500 this weekend.
“Accell Construction has been a great partner for the past year and a half,” commented Tommy Baldwin. “Steve and his company have been good to work with, and we are thrilled that he continues to see a return on the relationship. With them coming on board for three races, we have a little bit of breathing room as we continue to seek sponsorship for the remainder of the season.”
Reutimann will hit the .526-mile track Friday for practice. He will qualify the No. 10 Accell Construction Chevrolet on Saturday for Sunday’s event at Martinsville Speedway.
