THOMASVILLE, N.C. – Joey Gase and Agri Supply are teaming up to pay tribute to NASCAR Hall of Fame driver Bobby Allison in the 71st running of the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway in September.

Gase will pilot the No. 51 Rick Ware Racing entry with the familiar colors of red and gold from Allison’s 1971 Southern 500 win.

“I am thrilled to be teaming up with Agri Supply for the 71st Annual Southern 500 at Darlington to honor a true hero and legend in our sport, Bobby Allison,” said Gase. “Darlington is one of those race tracks that you always get chills at when you drive through the tunnel. Ever since they have started throwback weekend, it has made everything more special and fun for both the teams and fans.”

Agri Supply started as a farm supply store more than 50 years ago but now has grown to over 26,000 items and counting for your Farm, Tractor, Garden, and Home needs. Agri Supply has eight retail locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia; releases several unique catalogs per year; and has a thriving website with a huge product selection available.

“Agri Supply is great family-owned business that always has done everything the right way, and treated their customers like family.” continued Gase. “In these uncharted waters we are in right now, that treatment is no different. They are keeping all of their stories open in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and keeping all of their prices fair and affordable for families during these hard times. I could not be more proud to represent such a great company.”

“Our sport has a strong history of NASCAR champions who have helped to shape this sport,” said team owner Rick Ware. “We are honored to carry the colors of one of the most influential drivers in our sport, Bobby Allison, at Darlington Raceway in September, with Joey Gase behind the wheel of the No. 51 Agri Supply car.”
