Ryan Ellis has secured another sponsor for his NASCAR Xfinity Series slate with Alpha Prime Racing, which has committed to partnering with the Ashburn, Virginia native in multiple events this season.
American Auto Guardian, LLC (AAGI), an industry leader in he developing, marketing, and administering vehicle service contracts and other automotive protection plans, will partner with the 33-year-old drier in some capacity in three NASCAR Xfinity Series events this year.
The Illinois-based company will make its NASCAR sponsorship debut with a secondary sponsorship on the No. 43 Gurtz Electric Chevrolet in the inaugural Chicago Street Course event on July 1. Later in July, the company will return as an associate sponsor of the Keen Parts Chevrolet in the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ return to Road America.
To finish the three-race partnership off with a bang, the red and white branding of AAGI will adorn the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR Xfinity Series return to Daytona International Speedway for the Wawa 250 on August 25.
“Partnering with AAGI is a perfect fit for our fanbase and sport,” said Ellis, driver of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro. “Honestly, I’d have a hard time picking three races where we’re more likely to need “insurance” than these races at Chicago, Road America, and Daytona. I think the carnage of these three races will really align well with their industry, and I hope when people think of vehicle servicing, they think AAGI.”
This season, Ellis has served as the anchor driver of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro, a third entry for Alpha Prime Racing. Competing in 13 of the opening 15 races in 2023, Ellis has picked up a pair of top-15s, including a career-high 11th at Talladega Superspeedway.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Ryan and the team at Alpha Prime Racing,” said Craig Robinson, Chief Executive Officer at AAGI. “Their family-owned, blue-collar roots align with AAGI’s origins and speak to our values, and we love that they’re a small team invested in doing big things in the industry and their community. AAGI is proud to support Ryan across these three races as he makes a run for the NASCAR Playoffs.”
