April 8, 2016, Chicago, Illinois U.S.A.:FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Team Stange Racing and JUICE® Batteries have renegotiated their Race Sponsorship agreement for the 2016 season. JUICE® will become an associate sponsor and will remain the Primary Sponsor in select 2016 races of the Number 46 Team Stange Racing ARCA Machine. Team Stange and JUICE® are currently working to complete a revised Primary Race schedule.
Team CoOwner Ashley Stange stated, “We are disappointed to have to change our original plans, however I’m confident that our fans, ARCA fans, and Frank’s fans understand we are doing what is best for our team’s longevity, and for everyone’s mutual benefit. I remain grateful for the JUICE® sponsorship and confident of the success of their product launch. I believe this will lead to an everincreasing relationship leading to a successful 2017 Primary Sponsorship.”
Team Stange will continue to work with Frank Kimmel as a valued member of the team. CoOwner John Stange responded by saying, “Frank is a team player and he is also willing to give the guidance needed for young drivers interested in our Race2Cup development program”.
‘Race2Cup’ was developed by team owners Ashley and John Stange recognizing the need for drivers at different levels and abilities who intend to compete at the highest levels of stock car racing to be provided expert services such as networking, business creativity, branding, and on track driver development. It fills a void for drivers and their sponsors’ they felt traditional programs may be lacking in, and the Team owners take a more hands on customized approach to a driver’s goals.
As part of Team Stange’s progression and focus on becoming more and more competitive, Team Stange also revealed it will begin transitioning new cars being built to the Toyota New Composite body run with IImore engines.
