TaxSlayer Signs Sponsorship Deal With JR Motorsports
TaxSlayer will appear on Aric Almirola’s No. 88 Chevy twice next season; the February race at Phoenix International Raceway and the March race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. TaxSlayer will appear on the team’s No. 7 for seven more races, including the March race at Bristol Motor Speedway with team owner Dale Earnhardt Jr behind the wheel.
TaxSlayer will also appear on the No. 7 in the March race at Auto Club Speedway, the April race at Texas Motor Speedway, the May race at Darlington Raceway, the July race at Nashville Superspeedway, the August race at Iowa Speedway, and the October race at Dover International Speedway.
The drivers of those races have yet to be determined. But, a quick look at the Nationwide Series dates in 2011 that don’t conflict with the 2011 IZOD Indy Car Series schedule, shows that Patrick would be available to drive a TaxSlayer-sponsored car in the race at Darlington. It appears she will have Indy Car conflicts for the other five races.
JRM General Manager Kelley Earnhardt said:
This is something we are really excited to announce, because with what we have to offer, from a competition standpoint as well as a marketing and brand-building perspective, there is a lot of potential for a strong partnership with TaxSlayer. We feel like we align ourselves with the best sponsors and best people, and we look forward to building a long-lasting relationship with TaxSlayer.
Daniel Eubanks, TaxSlayer’s motorsports director, said:
JR Motorsports puts a competitive product on the track, but just as valuable is its ability to connect to NASCAR fans and the resources it uses to reach them. … This opportunity with JR Motorsports allows us to reach new customers and create new ways to educate people about our easy and affordable tax-filing service.
