Best Buy, Inc., confirmed today what Sirius Speedway first told you more than a week ago, that the nation’s leading electronics retailer will sponsor Elliott Sadler's No. 19 Gillett Evernham Motorsports Dodge Avenger in 15 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races next season, beginning with the 50th Anniversary Daytona 500.
Best Buy is expected to share sponsorship of the car with Valvoline and Stanley Tools.
Gillett Evernham Motorsports co-owner (and Sirius Speedway regular) Ray Evernham called the deal, "a natural fit," and Sadler said, "I’ve always been a ‘gadget guy.’ My house, car, boat and even my motor home are all tricked out with stereos, speakers, gaming systems, GPS, flat screens, DVD players, you name it. The employees at the Mooresville Best Buy store already know me by name, but they’ll be seeing even more of me now.”
Since 2000, Gillett Evernham Motorsports has posted 13 wins, 24 poles, 67 top-five and 130 top-10 finishes in NASCAR Sprint Cup Series competition. Sadler has recorded three career Sprint Cup wins, 55 top-10 finishes and seven poles.
