Roush Fenway Racing announced Wednesday that AdvoCare will become the full-time partner on Trevor Bayne’s No. 6 Ford Mustang in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Bayne will return to the ride for a second consecutive year with crew chief Mike Kelley, who won the 2011 and 2012 Nationwide titles with Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
“AdvoCare has always valued its relationship with the motorsports community, and as we began thinking about our vision for 2014 we knew this would be a winning combination,” said AdvoCare President and CEO Richard Wright. “Trevor embodies the spirit of AdvoCare through his values and integrity.
“He’s a true champion. We feel the Nationwide Series is our home, and that’s why we’re excited to team up with Roush Fenway Racing, Nationwide driver Trevor Bayne and the No. 6 car.”
AdvoCare has sponsored the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet of Austin Dillon the past two seasons. According to the Roush Fenway Racing release, “With Dillon making the move to full-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series racing in 2014, the organization began the process of diligently seeking out its best option moving forward.”
“AdvoCare values Austin and his team and are so grateful for the relationship we’ve built over the past few years,” said Wright. “We are proud of the success we’ve had together and are looking forward to Austin and the No. 3 team running for the 2013 NNS Championship.”
