Hard Rock Bet Joins Justin Bonsignore and Rette Jones Racing for Daytona ARCA Menards Series Season Opener

Rette Jones Racing (RJR) and Justin Bonsignore announced today they have partnered with Hard Rock Bet to support the No. 30 Ford Mustang for the ARCA Menards Series opener at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway on Saturday, February 17.

Hard Rock Bet is the official sportsbook of Daytona International Speedway and the proud title sponsor of Saturday’s ARCA Menards Series race, the Hard Rock Bet 200.

The Hard Rock Bet app is available for download in the App Store and Play Store, and a web sportsbook experience can be accessed at HardRock.bet.

With a 4.9-star rating, Hard Rock Bet is one of the highest-rated online sportsbooks with an easy-to-use app, quick sign-up, fast deposits and withdrawals, boosts, and free online loyalty rewards.

Bonsignore, a three-time champion on the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour with 40 career wins, will make his premier ARCA debut at the “World Center of Racing.” Bonsignore turned his fast laps at Daytona as part of last month’s ARCA preseason test.

Last weekend, the Holtsville, N.Y. native opened the 2024 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour season with a second-place finish at New Smyrna (Fla.) Speedway.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to represent Hard Rock Bet for my ARCA Menards Series debut at Daytona,” Bonsignore said. “Working with the Rette Jones Racing team has been a pleasure so far, and I’m looking forward to getting to the World Center of Racing this week.

“I’m ready for practice on Thursday to continue to learn more about the draft and get ready for Saturday’s 80-lap race. The opportunity to race at Daytona is a dream come true.”

Bonsignore picked up his first championship in 2018 and followed it up with two more in 2020 and 2021.

Over 17 years of competing on NASCAR’s oldest touring series, Bonsignore has amassed 40 career wins, along with 118 top-fives and 154 top-10s. His 40 wins rank him fourth all-time on the series win list, just two behind the late Ted Christopher for third.

Bonsignore also has 30 career Tour pole awards – also fourth on the all-time list. In the last six years with crew chief Ryan Stone, Bonsignore has 28 of his 40 wins.

“It’s going to be a weekend of legendary entertainment at Daytona, and we’re thrilled to partner with Justin Bonsignore and Rette Jones Racing to have a Hard Rock Bet racer in Saturday’s Hard Rock Bet 200 ARCA race,” offered Nick Menas, Managing Director – Corporate Strategy for Hard Rock Digital, which oversees the brand’s interactive gaming properties including Hard Rock Bet.

“Hard Rock Bet is Daytona’s sportsbook, and we look forward to engaging fans throughout Speedweeks at the Hard Rock Bet Fanzone and on the Hard Rock Bet app, the only way to bet the Daytona 500 in Florida.”

Mark Rette, co-owner of Rette Jones Racing, added, “Rette Jones Racing is thrilled to welcome Hard Rock Bet on board for Saturday afternoon’s ARCA Menards Series season-opener.

“As we’ve said for the last couple of weeks, we are proud to have a talented driver like Justin Bonsignore behind the wheel of one of our Ford Mustangs, and with the support of Hard Rock Bet – we look forward to being a contender for the win on Saturday afternoon.”
