MINNEAPOLIS – Snap Fitness has singed on to sponsor the No. 40 Hillman Racing Chevrolet SS driven by Landon Cassill in four NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events this season.
Snap Fitness will make its debut on the car June 28 at Kentucky Speedway. The company will also sponsor Hillman Racing and Cassill at Chicagoland Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Kansas Speedway.
“NASCAR is widely popular in the U.S., and as America’s fitness brand, we thought this was a great partnership between two brands that touch millions of people around the country,” said Snap Fitness Founder and Lift Brands CEO Peter Taunton. “Landon is also a fitness enthusiast who embodies everything our brand promotes: hard work, positivity and determination. We look forward to working closely with him on his road to success.”
Cassill has been racing professionally with NASCAR for seven years and was the 2008 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year. He is currently training for Ironman 70.3 half triathlon to be held July 20 in Racine, Wis.
“Fitness is a tremendous part of my life and I’m honored to represent the Snap Fitness brand in the NASCAR Sprint Cup,” said Cassill. “I’m also looking forward to workouts at Snap Fitness as I prepare for the Ironman competition and I look forward to helping them spread their message on fitness and living a healthy lifestyle.”
