Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will have an all-new look on his No. 47 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet Camaro when the NASCAR Cup Series heads to Nashville Superspeedway next weekend. Entenmann’s Donuts will adorn the sides of the No. 47 car.
The car will be set to feature Entenmann’s “Dads of Glory” program, which will be giving away $50,000 and free donuts.
“We can’t think of a sweeter way to celebrate Father’s Day than by helping our fans honor the dads and father figures, regardless of gender, that have helped inspire them,” said Jason Amar, Director of Marketing at Entenmann’s. “We are so excited to have Ricky’s support to promote this program and help us recognize all father figures that have made a positive impact in our fans’ lives.”
For Stenhouse, the “Dads of Glory” promotion reminds him of his dad and how hard he worked to help get him into the racing world.
“This is a simple and fun way to honor your father or father figure in your life,” said Stenhouse Jr. “This promotion makes me think of all the times my dad worked so hard to give me and family the opportunity to live a good life and get me to a place to where I was able to be successful at racing. It’s special to look back at all the hard work he put into my racing career. Because of him, I put the same work ethic into my craft.”
Stenhouse has had a lot of incredible moments of celebration with his father over the years.
“I remember when I won my first stock car race in ARCA (2008) and we climbed the fence to meet each other at the top of it,” Stenhouse Jr. explained in a release. “For my first Sprint car win, he jumped on the side of the race car and we did a victory lap together. There are a lot of cool moments we’ve shared, but just getting to spend time together is the best.”
Stenhouse, 34, recently completed a four consecutive race streak of top-10 finishes between Dover and Charlotte. Stenhouse sits 24th in the 2022 NASCAR Cup Series championship standings, but in the past month, the No. 47 team has really put together some strong efforts.
