Rush Truck Centers Joins Stewart’s ‘Return to Dirt’

INDIANAPOLIS – (Feb. 7, 2017) – Rush Enterprises, which operates the largest network of commercial vehicle dealerships in North America, announced today a continuation of its relationship with motorsports icon Tony Stewart by sponsoring his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Racing (TSR) team. The company’s Rush Truck Centers brand will serve as co-primary sponsor on the TSR No. 14 Rush Truck Centers/Arctic Cat J&J that Stewart will compete with in more than 50 dirt races in 2017. 

“Rush Truck Centers is extremely proud to continue our relationship with Tony Stewart in this next chapter of his career,” said Rusty Rush, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, Rush Enterprises, Inc. “We’ve had a great relationship with Tony for more than a decade and it has been an incredible partnership. Whether it’s been with Stewart-Haas Racing or as part of his Sprint car team, there has always been that championship culture with a passion and drive for winning that we have at Rush Truck Centers. As we understand it, Tony will be racing all over the country this year and that’s a great fit for us. Many of our customers and employees are race fans, so continuing our relationship with Tony makes business sense, now and for the future.”

Stewart is returning to his dirt-track roots following an illustrious 20-year NASCAR driving career. After spending the past 18 seasons competing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, Stewart begins what he calls the next chapter of his career behind the wheel of a 900-horsepower Sprint car this week competing in the Arctic Cat All-Star Circuit of Champions-sanctioned Bubba Army Winter Nationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida.

“I’m beyond thrilled to be getting back to racing on dirt, and having Rush Truck Centers along for the ride is really exciting,” Stewart said. “We’ve been doing business with Rush Truck Centers for years and have built some great friendships along the way. It takes a little bit of everything to build a great team and we know getting to and from the track this year is going to be a big part of it. We’re going to be racing all over and we will rely on Rush Truck Centers to keep our truck and transporter in great condition. If we can’t get from track to track, we can’t race, so having a partnership with Rush Truck Centers and all of the company’s detail-oriented employees is going to play a pivotal part in our team having the success we are looking for.”

Fans are encouraged to follow the progress of Stewart, TSR and the No. 14 Rush Truck Centers/Arctic Cat J&J throughout the 2017 season on the Web and social media. More information can be found at www.TonyStewartRacing.com, www.rushtruckcentersracing.com and www.tonystewart.com.
