Concord, N.C. (Oct. 10, 2013) – Roush Fenway Racing and two-time NASCAR Champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will remain ‘Zestfully Clean’ into the 2014 season, as Zest has extended its partnership with the team to include six primary paint schemes next year. Stenhouse - the leading rookie of the year candidate in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series - made the announcement Wednesday night on Sirius/XM NASCAR Radio’s “Dialed In” via “Jack’s Garage”, a weekly segment with award-winning radio host Claire B. Lang.
“We are thrilled to have Zest back with us next season,” said Stenhouse. “We get to run one of the coolest paint schemes in the garage when they are on the car. Beyond that, they keep our team Zestfully clean and fresh, which is not always easy to do at places like Talladega. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know everyone within their organization, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Zest.”
“Our partnership with Roush Fenway Racing and Ricky Stenhouse delivers great value for the Zest brand,” said Jim Daniels, president and CEO of High Ridge Brands.
“NASCAR fans are extremely loyal to team sponsors and we’ve seen that passion in how they support product and interact with our brand online. We look forward to 2014 as Ricky continues to become one of the sport’s top drivers. “
Sporting one of the most unique paint schemes in the sport, Zest first joined RFR in 2012 and has served as a primary partner on the No. 17 for the last two seasons.
