FONTANA, Calif. — For the second consecutive year at Auto Club Speedway, BUBBA burger will join Rick Ware Racing as the primary sponsor of the team’s charted No. 51 Toyota Camry for Sunday’s Auto Club 400 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.
After finishing a respectable 33rd last weekend at ISM (Phoenix) Raceway, Timmy Hill returns to the driver duties of the No. 51 BUBBA burger Toyota looking for another fulfilling and stuffing finish at the two-mile oval.
BUBBA burger is also a proud partner and the official burger of Auto Club Speedway.
“As an owner and driver, I have been fortunate to have competed in the NASCAR Winston West, Truck, Xfinity and Cup races at Fontana, so everyone knows how important this race is to me,” said RWR team principal Rick Ware. “I was born in Los Angeles and I considered Riverside Raceway my home track before Auto Club was built.
“With Auto Club now representing this part of the area of California, it’s a track that has a lot of significance to me. It’s also nice to come home, but it’s important for us to run as competitive as possible too. We’ve made some gains this season. I’m confident we can continue our progress with Timmy on Sunday.”
Hill, the 2011 NASCAR Xfinity Series Rookie of the Year will make his third Cup Series start at Fontana and the second since 2013.
“I’m thankful to have the opportunity to drive for Rick and BUBBA burger this weekend,” added Hill. “Everyone at BUBBA burger is a blast to work with and their products are fantastic.
“BUBBA burger has been a strong partner to RWR and others for years and I’m honored to represent a company that has such a hungry appetite for Motorsports, particularly NASCAR.”
