|Stephen Leicht returns...|
Leicht, the 25-year old former development driver for Robert Yates Racing and winner of the 2007 Nationwide Series race at Kentucky Speedway has been selected to pilot the No. 33 Circle Sport entry in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600. Leicht enters the weekend event with three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series starts to his credit, after making his debut for legendary owner and engine builder Robert Yates in 2006. Leicht was recently approved for the NASCAR ROTY program and will be guided by veteran crew chief Tony Glover. Glover is a three-time Daytona 500 championship crew chief credited with 14 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victories with drivers Ernie Irvan, Sterling Marlin and Joe Nemechek, and joins Circle Sport after a longtime leadership role with Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing.
Falk’s Little Joe’s Autos has served as a sponsor in the races leading up to the Coca-Cola 600 with Precon Marine, a Virginia-based company that specializes in heavy marine constructions, in an associate role. Additionally, Circle Sport welcomes marketing partners new to the sport of NASCAR – HotTorque.com and Moon Shine Attitude Attire – for this weekend’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. HotTorque, a social media forum and phone APP for car enthusiasts, was designed to help connect, communicate and share with automotive enthusiasts worldwide and will become the world’s first social media app for motoring enthusiasts to become a sponsor in NASCAR. Moon Shine Attitude Attire is a designer of quality brand name apparel that conveys the attitude and traditional values of every generation.
Complete details of the sponsor-driver lineup for the remainder of the season will be announced at a later date.
