Concord, N.C. (Nov. 2, 2011) – Nationwide Series points leader Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will be sponsored by Sam’s Club and its Member’s Mark Angus Beef brand this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway. Sam’s Club logos will be featured prominently on the No. 6 Ford Mustang accented with Member’s Mark Angus Beef logos.
“We are glad to have Sam’s Club and its Member’s Mark Angus beef brand on the hood in Texas,” said Stenhouse. “Cargill has been a huge supporter of our No. 6 team all year. We have every intention of getting this No. 6 Ford Mustang back to Victory lane this weekend, holding onto our points lead and closing out the season with the championship.”
“Even though the series took a short break, the No. 6 team was on the go,” said Fred Sousa, Assistant Vice President of Cargill Beef Marketing. “We’ve been busy fueling Ricky with Angus steaks to keep him strong for race day. The only thing that beats a great Angus steak is Ricky getting into victory lane on Saturday.”
Stenhouse holds a 15-point advantage over second place, with three races remaining in 2011.
