Byrd Racing Joins Thomas Jr. for Sprint Car Season

INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 16, 2017) – Jonathan Byrd’s Racing has come on board as a supporting sponsor for Kevin Thomas Jr. during his 2018 sprint car season. Byrd Racing has also brought with them, America’s Best Value Inn, Tilson, and XL Nanolube as associate sponsors.

“We are very excited to extend our support to Kevin and his team,” said David Byrd. “Kevin has been very impressive the last couple of seasons, and has definitely proven himself to be an elite sprint car competitor. We have certainly taken notice of what he’s accomplished, and believe there are a whole lot of race wins and championships in his future. We hope that this is just the beginning of a long and very fruitful relationship between Kevin and Byrd Racing.”

Jonathan Byrd’s Racing is primarily involved in the Verizon IndyCar Series, but in recent years made the cross-over to open wheel dirt racing, sponsoring the late Bryan Clauson in past seasons. Clauson made two Indy 500 appearances with the team, as well as leading laps at the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 aboard the Dale Coyne / Jonathan Byrd’s Racing No.88.

“I actually have to give my wife credit for this one,” joked Thomas. “This opportunity came about after she chose to use Jonathan Byrd’s Catering for our wedding reception. She has always been big on using companies that support racing, and that’s how we decided on them. When we sat down to talk with Jonathan, he said my work ethic and my wins were a big part of it, but that she really sealed the deal for me by using their catering company. I’m really excited to have Byrd Racing on the sprint car this year, and hopefully we’ll put them in victory lane a few times.”

Thomas Jr., who plans to chase a USAC National Sprint Car title in the Hoffman Auto Racing No.69, is leading the national series points after a second-place finish at Bubba Raceway Park for night one of the Winter Dirt Games.

Kevin Thomas Jr. would like to thank the following sponsors; Byrd Racing Enterprises, XL Nanolube, America’s Best Value Inn, Tilson, Mean Green Cleaner and Degreaser, Hoffman Auto Racing, Lykins Energy Solutions, XYZ Machining, KT Construction Services, Jeff’s Jam-It-In Storage, DRC Chassis, Speedway Engines, CSI Shocks, Bell Helmets, AMSOIL Inc., Indy Metal Finishings, BOSCH, Hinchman Racing Uniforms, Gridsport, High Side Design, and MPI.
