DALLAS – Bob Vandergriff Racing is teaming up with NFL Hall of Famer and Heisman Trophy winner Tim Brown.

Brown’s company, 81 Logistics Group, will be the primary sponsor of the Top Fuel Dragster driven by Jordan Vandergriff in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series for five races and will serve as an associate sponsor for the remaining 2019 season.

“As we continue to build our program it’s great to have 81 Logistics Group join BVR on Jordan’s dragster,” said team owner Bob Vandergriff. “Tim Brown and I share the same mindset and I look forward to working with Tim and everyone at 81 Logistics Group next season.”

81 Logistics Group is a national fleet fuel supply and logistics business based in Texas. Brown, a graduate from the University of Notre Dame, has continued his success beyond the gridiron and leads an impressive team of client-focused professionals.

“I was blown away by the experience of attending my first NHRA drag race a few months ago and look forward to working with Bob Vandergriff as we use this program as a focal point in our business development strategy. I can’t wait to see our company logo in the winner’s circle in 2019,” said Brown.
