Less than a week after announcing American Auto as a major sponsor of his No. 8 Silverado, the former Daytona Beach resident announced the addition of Paytas Homes to his effort at the World Center of Racing. “I am proud to carry the name of Paytas Homes at my hometown track of Daytona,” said Skinner. “This has been such a cool experience to see all of my friends come together and support my career. My friends at Paytas Homes have the best value, reputation and quality home in the area. With the support of great sponsors like these and a truck from ESR, hopefully we can put on a good show.”
Paytas Homes owner Jim Paytas is a second-generation builder and a lifelong resident of the Daytona Beach Area. As a longtime friend of the 1995 Truck Series Champion, Paytas also backed Skinner for two races during the 2011 season.
“Paytas Homes is excited to support Mike Skinner and the ESR team,” said Paytas. “Our name is recognized in the Daytona area as one of the best in the business and teaming up with Skinner and ESR fits within our brand of striving for excellence. We certainly expect to be running up front with considering the efforts Eddie and the team have coordinated for this race.”
Fans in the Daytona Beach area are invited to meet Skinner Tuesday from 2-3 p.m. EST at the Promenade Parke in New Smyrna Beach, Fla. In addition to getting an autograph and photo with Skinner, fans will be able to register to win a pair of tickets to Friday night’s NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway. The event will take place at a Paytas Homes-built community and model center at 554 Luna Bella Lane, New Smyrna Beach. The winner of the NextEra Energy Resources 250 tickets must be present to claim their prize.
