Popular Retailer Teaming Up with No. 36 Ford Team and Surface Sunscreen for Multiple Races in 2019
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (August 7, 2019) – Stocking up for raceday essentials has been made even easier thanks to Meijer, Surface Sunscreen and Matt Tifft. Meijer is partnering with the Front Row Motorsports (FRM) driver to serve as primary sponsor for the No. 36 Ford Mustang in this weekend’s “Consumers Energy 400” Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway. Meijer will also serve as an associate sponsor for Matt Tifft next month at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Midwest grocery retailer will now feature a line of Surface Sunscreen products hitting shelves just in time for raceday. Surface Sunscreen, maker of purpose-built sun care products designed with athletes and action sports in mind, is a season-long partner of Matt Tifft and Front Row Motorsports.
Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Meijer operates more than 245 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin. Founded on strong family values and a commitment to strengthening communities, Meijer is focused on bringing families great food, great brands, great savings and great big smiles.
“It can sometimes be a hassle to shop for everything you need at the track,” said Tifft. “Meijer is the ultimate source for getting everything on your list, which should always include sun protection. I’m excited to debut this paint scheme at Michigan and to have Meijer on the car again in Indy.”
The No. 36 Meijer Ford Mustang will make its debut at Michigan International Speedway on Friday, August 9 for practice and qualifying. The “Consumers Energy 400” Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race will air Sunday, August 11 at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
