CHESTER, Conn. — official team release —
Whelen Engineering welcomes NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Joey Logano to its family of motorsport partnerships.
Logano, one of NASCAR’s brightest stars, is already a seven-year veteran at only 24 years of age with multiple victories under his belt. Logano holds the distinction as the youngest race winner, youngest pole winner and youngest Rookie of the Year in NASCAR’s top level, the Sprint Cup Series.
In 2014, Logano set a career high in wins (5), top-5’s (16), top-10’s (22) and laps led (993) along with being part of the “Championship 4” in NASCAR’s inaugural Chase playoff system.
The partnership with Logano adds to Whelen’s NASCAR sponsorship portfolio. After sponsoring a NASCAR developmental series race team for ten years, Whelen became the entitlement sponsor of the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour, NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. At the same time, Whelen also became the Official Warning Lights of NASCAR.
In the 10 years since, fire, safety and ambulance vehicles at NASCAR events have been outfitted with Whelen warning lights, and race tracks across the United States and Canada have been featured Whelen caution control lights.
“Whelen Engineering has been known for years as the best in flashing warning lights, but we are also now designing and manufacturing illumination products with the same quality and attention to detail,” said Whelen Engineering Vice President for Motorsports Phil Kurze. “Through our partnership with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Joey Logano, we look forward to expanding our brand in motorsports as Joey continues to win and run for Championships at NASCAR’s highest level.”
“I’m really excited to grow our relationship with the Whelen team and racing community” said Logano. “We have worked together through efforts around the US Bobsled Team and Joey Logano Foundation over the last few years and looking forward to now partnering on the racing side. Whelen is based out of Connecticut, not far from where I grew up. They are great supporters of everything racing and I can’t wait to help them grow their brand and business in motorsports for many years to come. ”
