Trackhouse Racing will continue to field cars that are brightly colored with Kubota Orange. On Thursday morning, the race team announced it had reached a contract extension through the 2025 NASCAR Cup Series season with Kubota Tractor Company.
As part of the extension, the iconic brand will return as a primary sponsorship partner of Ross Chastain’s No. 1 car, and Daniel Suárez’s No. 99 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Additionally, Kubota will continue as the Official Tractor Company of Trackhouse Racing.
“After the thrilling ride we’ve been on with Ross (Chastain), Daniel (Suárez), and the Trackhouse Racing team over the last two seasons, it was an easy decision to keep it rolling for another two,” said Todd Stucke, Kubota Tractor Corporation Senior Vice President of Marketing, Product Support, and Special Projects. “The Trackhouse team has been an outstanding partner and we’re proud they’ll continue representing our brand across Kubota Country, both on and off the track.”
Chastain, who has carried the Kubota colors in five races so far this season, and will have the brand on his car again at Homestead-Miami Speedway next month, feels the partnership is a natural one for him, as his family owns and operates a watermelon farm.
“One of the awesome things about partnering with Kubota is they’re heavily involved in agriculture and it’s an authentic relationship,” said Chastain, who is an eighth-generation watermelon farmer. “I feel at home when I’m meeting with employees and customers who are connected to Kubota and look forward to continuing our relationship.”
Kubota will continue to use the partnership with Trackhouse Racing to provide support for farmer veterans. Every time Chastain scores a top-10 finish with Kubota serving as his primary sponsor, Kubota will donate $10,000 to the Farmer Veteran Coalition.
In total, Kubota will be featured on Trackhouse Racing machines in seven markets during the 2024 season. The brand will be featured at Phoenix Raceway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Sonoma Raceway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, and Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Suárez, who finished eighth in the No. 99 Kubota Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway, is excited to continue building his relationship with Kubota.
“It’s great to have a brand like Kubota supporting our race team,” said Suárez, who became the first Mexican driver to win a NASCAR Xfinity title in 2016 and a Cup race in 2022. “I think their continued partnership says a lot about them and Trackhouse Racing and how to build a successful relationship.”
