Potomac Family Dining Group Returns to RCR’s No. 31 Entry in the ARCA Racing Series

Potomac Family Dining Group (PFDG) announced today the sponsorship of Tim George Jr., driver of the No. 31 Richard Childress Racing (RCR) Chevrolet, in the Messina Wildlife Animal Stopper 150 ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards at Chicagoland Speedway on June 4.

This marks a return to the RCR Chevrolet for the Washington, D.C.-based restaurant group that is the exclusive franchisee of 30 Applebee’s®restaurants in southern Maryland, northern Virginia, and parts of West Virginia and Pennsylvania. In April, PFDG sponsored George in both the ARCA Racing Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series races at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway.

“Many of our guests are fans of NASCAR-style auto racing and we see our support of Tim and RCR as another way to reinforce our commitment to being a good neighbor, “said Jim Rieger, President and CEO of Potomac Family Dining Group.

Along with being one of the most recognized brands in the casual dining segment of the restaurant industry, Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar® is also its largest with more than 2,000 restaurants worldwide.

George comes to Chicagoland carried on the momentum of consecutive top-five finishes at Toledo Speedway and New Jersey Motorsports Park.

“It’s a real honor to have Applebee’s and the Potomac Family Dining Group back on the RCR Chevrolet,” said Tim George Jr. “It’s a great feeling to have such an established and respected brand support our efforts. We’ll get to showcase them on SPEED Channel this weekend at Chicagoland, where we had a good test a couple of weeks ago. My team has spent a good deal of time working on the car. I’m looking forward to the race on Saturday.”
