Violet Defense, who joined the Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing family of sponsors in 2021, will serve as the primary partner for Brad Keselowski in the Busch Light Clash on February 6.
In addition to sponsorship of the historic event, Violet Defense will back both Brad Keselowski’s No. 6 and Chris Buescher’s No. 17 in five points-paying events throughout the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season.
“We are excited to be partnering with the RFK Racing team again this year, especially with Brad joining the team. Not only does this partnership give us the opportunity to support the RFK team, it gives us a great platform to educate businesses and the sports community about the value of UV disinfection to protect the health and safety of their teams,” said Terrance Berland, CEO of Violet Defense.
Keselowski, the 2012 NASCAR Cup Series champion, has joined Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing (RFK Racing) as partial team owner ahead of the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series season, after a long tenure at Team Penske, which include top-10 points finishes in nine of the last 11 seasons.
Violet Defense will adorn Keselowski’s No. 6 Ford Mustang at the Busch Light Clash (February 6), Auto Club Speedway (February 27), Phoenix Raceway (March 13), and Homestead-Miami Speedway (October 23).
The company will also adorn Chris Buescher’s No. 17 Ford Mustang in two NASCAR Cup Series events at Richmond Raceway (April 3), and Indianapolis Road Course (July 31).
“We’re thrilled to not only continue, but expand this partnership with Violet Defense, a company that is proving to push the envelope in all areas,” said Steve Newmark, RFK Racing President. “Their excitement to be in the sport and with our race team is unparalleled, and their products and services continue to be at the forefront of our efforts to keep our employees safe and healthy both at home and on the road.”
