PIT BOSS HAS BEEN THE OFFICIAL GRILL OF NASCAR SINCE 2018
PHOENIX, AZ – Pit Boss® Grills, the fastest growing brand in the grilling industry, is proud to announce a multiyear partnership extension with NASCAR, continuing the brand’s designation as the “Official Grill of NASCAR.” Pit Boss originally entered into the league as an official partner in 2018, marking the brand’s first professional sports property agreement.
“We are blessed to extend our partnership with NASCAR and take our relationship to the next level,” said Dansons President Jeff Thiessen. “Not only do our companies share the same core values and beliefs, but race fans are also our consumers. Both NASCAR and Pit Boss support an atmosphere of family and friendship and are supported by a common community of individuals who are passionate about those same principles. We’ve seen continued successes for our brand within the sport over the last two years and look forward to where the future will take us.”
The NASCAR Official Partnership renewal solidifies the future of Pit Boss Grill’s involvement in the sport. Through the extended partnership, Pit Boss Grills will expand its activation across NASCAR-owned racetracks, bringing its presence to 18 at-track activations across the NASCAR schedule in 2021. Pit Boss Grills will continue to activate at retail and key race events throughout the season for strategic hospitality events.
“The inaugural NASCAR at COTA weekend is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated events on the action-packed 2021 NASCAR schedule, and everyone wants in on the fun,” said Kevin Camper, executive vice president and Chief Sales Officer for Speedway Motorsports. “From fans to business partners, we’ve seen a surge in interest around this amazing event, and we’re proud to bring Pit Boss on board to help us make the weekend and event to remember.”
“Based on the success of our initial agreement, Pit Boss Grills has since expanded its NASCAR presence with partnerships across the industry, the most effective way to market to our fans.” said Michelle Byron, vice president, partnership marketing, NASCAR. “Our partnership with Pit Boss Grills is built upon our joint family values and the organic connection between our fans and their love for grilling, a staple at any NASCAR race weekend. We are very excited to continue this partnership in the years ahead.”
