NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase competitor Ryan Newman and his teammate/boss Tony Stewart both know what Steak house they will be visiting often in 2012.
Newman’s team, Stewart- Hass Racing, which campaigns Chevrolets for Newman and team co-owner Tony Stewart signed an agreement with Outback Steak house to be the primary sponsor on Newman’s No.39 for two races in 2012.
When not serving as primary, Outback will be an associate partner with placement of their logo on the B-pillar of Newman’s Chevy Impala. The steakhouse joins the U.S Army, Quicken Loans and Tornados as primary sponsors on the No.39 Sprint Cup Series Chevy Impala.
"I've always been a huge fan of Outback Steakhouse and I know why it's been voted the best steak year in and year out," said Newman, who has 15 Sprint Cup wins on his resume - including the 50th running of the Daytona 500 in 2008.
"Given their leadership and performance on and off the track, we are pleased to partner with the likes of SHR and Ryan Newman," said Jeff Smith, president of Outback.
"Outback Steakhouse and SHR share the same passion and commitment to excellence that drives us in our everyday operations," said Stewart. "Outback's reputation for quality and great service aligns nicely with our approach to being a leading performer on the track, and we're excited for all the things we can accomplish together."
"As a fan of Outback Steakhouse, I'm excited to have them on board as a new sponsor in 2012," said Ryan Newman. "They've always been a brand known for quality and excellence -- the same qualities I bring to the track."
The announcement was made during a press conference at Phoenix. Tony Stewart, two-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion and co-owner of Stewart-Haas Racing, joined Newman and Outback Steakhouse Chief Marketing Officer, Mike Kappitt, in the unveiling of the No. 39 Outback Steakhouse Chevrolet Impala.
