The 16th Sponser for the Kentucky Speedway
For the first time, Team Rensi Motorsports is teaming up with local, major, associate sponsor Jeff Wyler Automotive Family for the Kroger 225 at Kentucky Speedway. David Wyler, Vice-President of the Jeff Wyler Automotive Family, stated that "we are a fairly good size truck dealer and this alliance is obviously a good fit for our market because the fans of the NASCAR Truck Series can easily identify the purpose of our involvement…there's evidently a great amount of loyalty for the truck manufacturers. Therefore, we are hoping this will drive customers to our doors. Regionally, this will be beneficial to us because our company stretches across the Greater Cincinnati - Northern Kentucky and Greater Louisville, Kentucky area and this is why we are doing it".
After finishing 3rd in the Kroger 225 at the 7/16-mile oval Louisville Motor Speedway last year, Jimmy Hensley and Team Rensi are anticipating a victory at the new Kentucky Speedway. Located 35 miles South of Cinncinati in Sparta Kentucky, the new state-of-the-art facility housing a 1.5-mile tri-oval with 14-degree banking in the turns, will prove to be an exciting night race for all spectators.
Jimmy Hensley Quote - Kentucky Speedway:
"We are glad to have Jeff Wyler Automotive Family on board with us as a sponsor for the Kroger 225 at the Kentucky Speedway. We have heard many good things about this particular facility. Even though I raced at Louisville Motor Speedway last year, the Craftsman Truck Series will be venturing into a new market. We feel as though this area will bring in a good crowd to the Kentucky Speedway" (Jimmy Hensley).
