4 February 2005
MOORESVILLE, N.C. February 4, 2005—Fulltiltpoker.com, an interactive poker gaming Web site, has signed with Foyt Racing as the primary sponsor of the No.16 Dodge. The car will be driven by Larry Foyt in the Advance Discount Auto Parts 200 at Daytona International Speedway Saturday, Feb. 12th. The race will be televised live on SPEED Channel starting at 4pm EST.
The ARCA race will be the first foray into motorsports for Fulltiltpoker.com which sees a great opportunity to bring its online poker experience to racing fans.
“This is a great opportunity for us to join forces with such an exciting sport and an amazing race car driver” said Bob Wolf, Chief of Marketing for Tiltware. “Motorsports has been a mainstay in the American consciousness and with the poker phenomenon at such heights, we make a great team.”
“I’m excited to be back behind the wheel at Daytona,” said Foyt. “I’ve only driven in one ARCA race and that was over four years ago. I’ve learned a lot since then so I’m really looking forward to competing next weekend.
“Fulltiltpoker.com was designed by a company that recognized the sweeping popularity of poker across the country,” Foyt said. “They’re demonstrating their innovativeness with this motorsports sponsorship. I’m sure they’ll reach many of our adult race fans who enjoy a good game of poker. Now fans will discover they can enjoy poker online anytime.”
Young Foyt put together the one-time race package for his father A.J. Foyt’s team with support from BAM Racing team owners Beth Ann and Tony Morgenthau. The Morgenthaus are trying to secure sponsorship to field a car for Foyt in one of NASCAR’s divisions this year.
Foyt has also signed two associate sponsors for this event: Demons Cycles (www.demonscycles.com), builder of custom motorcycles, and Victory Sportswear (www.victorysportswear.com) a full line apparel company that offers screen printing, embroidery and ad specialty items to local race teams across the country.
