Johnny Sauter will pilot the No. 83 Dustless Blasting Toyota Camry for BK Racing in the 57th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday February 22nd, 2015 at Daytona International Speedway.
The Wisconsin native is well-known in all three of NASCAR's top series. Sauter had his start in the sport in 2001 and has raced in over 400 NASCAR events, with 10 wins, 56 Top-5 and 86 Top-10 finishes. In addition, Sauter has finished in the Top 10 in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship points the past six years running.
"We are very comfortable with our chances to race our No. 83 Dustless Blasting Camry into the Daytona 500 with Johnny behind the wheel. He has a lot of experience running upfront, a veteran in the sport and a loyal Toyota Racing driver," said Ron Devine, owner of BK Racing. "Regardless of the outcome of the Budweiser Duels, we look forward to working with Johnny on a select race schedule in 2015."
"I am excited to be joining the BK Racing team for the start of the 2015 NASCAR season,” said Sauter. “I am thankful for the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the No. 83 Dustless Blasting Toyota, and compete with the top athletes in the motorsports industry. We are going to get out there and give it our all and hopefully come home with a good finish for this team and sponsor."
Dustless Blasting will return to BK Racing in 2015 for the second season and will be a primary sponsor for at least four races, including the Daytona 500. In addition to the premier race of the season, Dustless Blasting will also be on the No. 83 Toyota at both Talladega Superspeedway races and Daytona in July.
"We're very excited to continue our support of BK Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series," said Benny LeCompte, owner of MMLJ Inc. "Much like Johnny Sauter, Dustless Blasting has made a monumental rise over the last few years, and it has an extremely bright future ahead of it. We are excited to give our customers, many of whom are NASCAR fans, something to cheer for at the biggest race of year, the Daytona 500!"
