Huntersville, N.C. (October 9, 2017) – Joey Gase will join BK Racing for Talladega, along with associate sponsors Donate Life Alabama and Eternal Fan. Joey will drive the No. 23 Dr Pepper Toyota Camry. Teammate Gray Gaulding will be in the No. 83 Dustless Blasting Camry for Talladega.
”Eternal Fan is honored to offer Talladega Fans a place where they can continue their relationship with this iconic speedway,” said Eternal Fan President Matt Linn. “There is no better way to continue the tradition of the sport than to be teammates of BK Racing and Joey Gase. THIS IS TALLADEGA!”
“The Alabama Organ Center is proud to sponsor Joey Gase in the Alabama 500,” states Chris Meeks, Executive Director of the Alabama Organ Center. “We think this a great way to honor our generous donors and their families, while raising awareness about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation. Nearly 3,000 people are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant in Alabama and we encourage everyone to consider donation and register their decision through the DMV or on-line.”
“I am excited to be coming back to Talladega in the Cup Series and to team up with Dr Pepper, Eternal Fan, and AOC,” said Joey Gase. “I enjoy the superspeedways and have had good finishes there including when I finished 5th at Talladega in the XFINITY Series with Jimmy Means Racing in 2015. With the help of AOC we will also be able to honor Jerred Bowles, an organ donor who was able to save the lives of many, on the car.”
“Eternal Fan and Donate Life Alabama are great organizations,” said Doug Fritz, BK Racing CMO, “and we are excited to have these two new sponsors on our car for Talladega. Joey has been great to work with this season, and had strong runs in the Daytona 500 and Talladega early this year, we are happy to have him back in the car.”
