A sponsor with rich history in NASCAR has joined the sport’s most popular rookie.
Hooters and Hendrick Motorsports have announced that the dining chain will sponsor Elliott in two races in 2017 and 2018. The #24 Hooters Chevrolet will make its debut at Talladega in April, and Phoenix in November.
Hooters started with six people in 1983, and now they’re in 42 states and 28 countries,” said Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. “They’ve grown by focusing on the experience, earning the business of their customers and supporting terrific causes like cancer research and our men and women in uniform. NASCAR fans appreciate those things, and we have an opportunity to do some great work together.”
“Twenty-five years after being part of one of the most memorable seasons in NASCAR history, Hooters is excited to support another amazing talent in Chase Elliott and the No. 24 team,” said Carl Sweat, chief marketing officer of Hooters. “As the official headquarters of race day, we’re proud that so many NASCAR fans choose to watch the races at Hooters every week while enjoying their favorite wings, ice cold beer and one-of-a-kind Hooters Girl hospitality.”
Chase Elliott expressed excitement as Hooters will adorn a Premier Series car once again.
“Hooters is a place where I can let down my guard and have a good time,” Elliott said. “It means a lot to have them support the No. 24 team, and I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of their car. Being on the ground level of introducing a new partner to the Hendrick Motorsports family is going to be a lot of fun. Hooters has a historic place in this sport, and I’m glad they’re back. Our entire team is looking forward to making the program a success.”
