Hunt Brothers® Pizza To Serve as Primary Sponsor of Ken Schrader in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at Eldora

Schrader to Drive No. 71 Hunt Brothers Pizza Toyota for Contreras Motorsports

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 14, 2016) - Hunt Brothers® Pizza will be the primary sponsor for Ken Schrader and the No. 71 Contreras Motorsports (CMS) Toyota Tundra for the Aspen Dental Eldora Dirt Derby July 20 at Eldora Speedway in Ohio as part of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

“This is such a nostalgic moment to be back with Ken Schrader, our very first driver when we started in NASCAR,” said Keith Solsvig, vice president of marketing for Hunt Brothers Pizza.

“Ken is one of the sport’s most iconic drivers. We’re excited to be with Ken and the newly formed Contreras Motorsports team for this race!”

Schrader currently holds the fastest truck lap record at Eldora—19.709 seconds—from 2013. Currently sitting in fourth in driver points, he and his team have already had a very impressive run this year in the ARCA Racing Series. In his Modified, Schrader has 20 top five finishes, nine second place finishes and a trip to victory lane in Idaho.

“As the first driver to carry the red, white and green colors for Hunt Brothers Pizza at Talladega in 2008, I am excited to be back racing with them for the July truck race at Eldora,” said Schrader. “It is a great brand and a terrific family to work with. I’m proud to be in the Hunt Brothers Pizza truck and hope we can repeat some of the success we’ve had in the Camping World Truck Series at Eldora.”

Schrader added, “We will be driving the #71 truck for Contreras Motorsports. I believe we have a great combination of team and sponsor, and I am looking forward to seeing what we can make happen. This event is high energy, from the trucks on the track to the fans in the grandstands— truly a midsummer classic.”

The Dirt Derby race at Eldora is the only dirt track truck race on the schedule and is celebrating its fourth year back in Rossburg, Ohio. It was formerly known as the “Mud Summer Classic.”

Hunt Brothers Pizza became involved in NASCAR as a team partner in 2008, when the company sponsored Haas CNC Racing.
