Food City will partner with Kaulig Racing for this weekend’s NASCAR Cup Series Food City Dirt Race at Bristol, as it will sponsor the No. 16 car of AJ Allmendinger and the No. 31 car of Justin Haley through laundry detergent brands Tide and Gain.
Last season Food City partnered with Petty GMS (now LEGACY MOTOR CLUB) in sponsorships at Dirt Bristol with the iconic laundry brands.

Realtree Camouflage will serve as the primary sponsor for Austin Hill and the No. 62 Beard Motorsports team in the upcoming NASCAR Cup Series GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway.
Hill, 28, finished 18th in his NASCAR Cup Series debut last season at Michigan and attempted to make the field for the 2023 Daytona 500, but ultimately missed the show. Hill has been a dominant force in the NASCAR Xfinity Series this season as he has won three races already in 2023.

Austin Cindric, who won the 2022 Daytona 500 to score his first-career NASCAR Cup Series win, had the honor of seeing his car being added to the NASCAR Hall of Fame’s ‘Glory Road: 75 Years’ exhibit.
The exhibit, which is featured on Glory Road a display at the initial entry of the NASCAR Hall of Fame, which showcases the banking of the various race tracks in NASCAR, features iconic cars from historic moments through NASCAR’s 75 years of existence.

The field for Sunday’s Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway – the third race for the NASCAR Cup Series on the dirt-covered half-mile facility – will consist of the same 37 teams from last weekend at Richmond, albeit with a couple of driver changes.
For the second straight weekend, Kaulig Racing will be fielding a third entry in the NASCAR Cup Series, with Jonathan Davenport behind the wheel this weekend, rather than Chandler Smith. Davenport will make his NASCAR Cup Series debut in Sunday’s event.
There are 41 trucks [for 36 spots] on the preliminary entry list for Saturday’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Weather Guard Truck Race on Dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway. The sixth event of the 2023 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season.
Among those entered in the event are the series regulars competing for the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series championship from week to week. That includes Carson Hocevar, who scored his first career victory last weekend at Texas Motor Speedway.
