Hunt Brothers Pizza is set to be the primary sponsor for Kevin Harvick and the No. 4 Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) Chevrolet SS for the 30th running of the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race May 17 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.
“This is our first primary sponsorship with our new racing partner, Stewart-Haas Racing,” said Keith Solsvig, vice president of marketing for Hunt Brothers Pizza. “Kevin and Stewart-Haas have already had a very impressive run this year, including trips to victory lane at Phoenix and Darlington. We chose to align ourselves with this reputable team because racing fans are our consumers.”
The NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race is a non-points event with $1 million in prize money on the line. The night also includes high-stakes qualifying to set the starting lineup. A break from NASCAR’s normal qualifying rules, drivers will qualify using a timed three-lap run that includes a mandatory four-tire pit stop and no pit road speed limit.
Hunt Brothers Pizza became involved in NASCAR as a team partner in 2008, where the company sponsored Haas CNC Racing, the predecessor of SHR, and aligned with NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Kevin Harvick in 2009. Harvick holds 23 total career victories, 100 top-five finishes and 209 top-ten finishes within the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, proving himself an elite driver in the highly coveted series. Hunt Brothers Pizza is also an associate sponsor of the No. 4 Chevrolet for the duration of the current racing season.
With more than 7,000 locations in 28 states, Hunt Brothers Pizza is the nation’s largest brand of made to-order pizza in the convenience store industry.
