Quebec-based Spectra Premium has joined up with Gaunt Brothers Racing for the remainder of the 2018 season.
The partnership kicked off with the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series race during the American Memorial Day weekend at the Charlotte Motor Speedway in the Coca-Cola 600, won by Kyle Busch.
Spectra Premium adorned Gaunt Brothers Racing’s No. 96 Toyota Camry at the race, which was driven by Parker Kligerman.
“Following last year’s partnership, we were eager for the opportunity to team up again with GBR, this time in NASCAR’s premier series,” said Jason Best, senior vice-president, aftermarket at Spectra Premium Industries. “For Spectra Premium, this participation represents an exciting and significant progression in our motorsports program.”
GBR, owned by Ontario native Marty Gaunt, has competed in five Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races this season. Prior to its first Cup race in Daytona in 2017, the team participated in the Camping World Truck Series, K&N Pro Series and Canada’s Pinty’s Series.
“We are pleased to partner with Spectra Premium for the remainder of this year,” said Gaunt, “We fielded a successful entry together last year at CTMP in Ontario and appreciate extending this partnership.”
