Ricky Stenhouse Jr. and JTG Daugherty Racing will partner with Food 4 Less – a subsidiary of Kroger — in the Busch Light Clash at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on February 6, while also welcoming the return of Slim Jim.
JTG Daugherty Racing revealed the paint scheme with a press release and tweet on Tuesday.
“This year we have different Kroger banners on our Camaro depending on the market we are in, and for the race at the Coliseum it’s Food 4 Less,” Stenhouse said. “The Los Angeles-based grocer is committed to providing fresh affordable groceries throughout Southern California, and we’re looking forward to putting on a good show for them. We’re also proud to have Slim Jim on board for this race.”
It’s a new venue, a temporary track, a brand-new car, and we will have a lot of new fans there,” Stenhouse said. “I don’t know what to think about the race or track, but it’s the same for everybody since it’s all new to us. We will all figure it out quickly when we get there. We are ready to get going.”
The first weekend of the 2022 NASCAR season will kick off with practice and qualifying for the Busch Light Clash on February 5, with on-track race action beginning with the four heat races on Sunday. Of the 36 cars entered, only 23 will make it to the 150-lap main event.
“Food 4 Less is proud to sponsor Ricky Stenhouse Jr and the No. 47 Food 4 Less/Slim Jim Camaro ZL1,” said Eddie Vasquez, manager, customer communications, Food 4 Less. “We look forward to seeing the No. 47 take the checkered flag at the Busch Light Clash.”
Slim Jim is the latest Kroger brand that has been revealed as a partner for the No. 47 team for the 2022 season.
On January 10th, the team unveiled Stenhouse’s paint scheme for the 2022 Daytona 500 as well as the Bristol Dirt Race. Stenhouse will have sponsorship from Irish Spring Body Wash in those events.
