Four Loko to Sponsor Ellis at Circuit of The Americas
Ryan Ellis and Alpha Prime Racing are proud to announce that Four Loko is returning as a sponsor in 2023, sponsoring the No.43 Chevrolet Camaro at Circuit of the Americas on March 25th. The iconic brand first entered the sport last year sponsoring Ellis at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in his first race with Alpha Prime Racing, in an exciting event where the Four Loko Chevy avoided multiple crashes at the 1.5-mile oval, finishing 13th.
Four Loko, at its core, thrives on fueling epic stories that make life unforgettable. Four Loko salutes those who dare to live in the moment, who dare to be bold, and unexpected. Four Loko’s 2022 release of Four Loko USA and Loko USA car design embodies the lifestyle and energy of the American NASCAR fan.
“We’re very excited to partner with Ryan and the team for a second year. Ryan was a wonderful partner for us in 2022, his enthusiasm for the brand, openness for fun content & collaboration between teams made it a no brainer to run this back in 2023. We also can’t wait to get this car in front of his and our fans in Texas.,” said Sam Catalina, VP of Marketing for Phusion Projects.
A new scheme will be announced in the coming weeks that is sure to catch the attention of fans, much like the LOKO USA scheme Ellis ran in 2022.
“We’re going into our second year with Four Loko as a sponsor and it’s still crazy to me that I get to be part of such a fun and exciting partnership. This is a brand that I grew up around in college and I never thought I’d be driving a Four Loko sponsored race car in NASCAR,” said Ryan Ellis, driver of the No.43 Four Loko Chevy.
“We got so much attention last year with the scheme - bald eagles shooting lasers, bears crushing Four Loko cans, it’s hard not to get attention with chaos like that on the car. But we also had a great run and got a lot of TV time for the brand and I know NASCAR fans loved seeing a new brand come into the sport and just own the spotlight like that. Having heard the ideas and seen some sample schemes for this year, I am so excited to reveal their ideas to fans and I hope we can build this partnership into more races in 2023 and beyond.”
“It’s so cool to be associated with a brand as fun and notable as Four Loko. We had a blast with the brand last year - not only at the racetrack, but with all the innovative content we created together, and throughout all of the time we were able to spend with their group. COTA will certainly be a different event than Las Vegas, but the environment and crowd will be a great fit. We’re really excited for them to experience their first road course with Ryan Ellis and we’re looking forward to an exciting partnership once again,” said Tommy Joe Martins, President of Alpha Prime Racing.
