Love’s NASCAR Sponsorship Getting Extra Horsepower
01/27/2014 - STATESVILLE, N.C. -- Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores is revving up for an expanded
partnership with Front Row Motorsports. The truck stop operator will
sponsor Front Row's team in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 14 races
this year featuring driver David Gilliland in his No. 38 Love's Travel
“Our partnership with Front Row Motorsports is incredibly valuable to
us," said Jenny Love Meyer, vice president of communications for
Love’s. “It’s a positive venue to highlight the fast, clean, friendly
service Love’s is known for, and our customers have responded with
overwhelming enthusiasm. For our 50th anniversary year, we are thrilled
to be back in NASCAR in a bigger way with Front Row and David
Last year, Love's teamed up with Front Row Motorsports and
sponsored three races in the company's first venture into NASCAR. At the
Talladega Superspeedway in May, Gilliland placed second and was able to
maneuver his Love's Travel Stops Ford teammate David Ragan to the front
of the field for a 1-2 finish.
“This partnership with Love’s is a perfect example of how our
program works and why it’s so successful," team owner Bob Jenkins said.
“They got their feet wet last season, saw the benefits of a partnership
with Front Row Motorsports, and now they’re expanding their involvement.
And we couldn’t be happier that the No. 38 car has a principal sponsor
who will be with us throughout the season."
Gilliland also expressed his enthusiasm about Love's expanded sponsorship.
“This is a personal partnership for me," said Gilliland. “My
family and I travel in our motorhome all over, and we always stop at
Love’s Travel Stops. We can always find one whenever we need one; they
have everything we need and the service is great. We’re all excited that
we’re going to be part of the Love’s family again for another year, and
it’s going to be bigger and better."
