ST. HELENA, Calif. – Rico Abreu and California-based Golden State Restaurant Group have joined forces as part of a 22-race sponsorship deal on Abreu’s No. 24 sprint car.
The pairing will make their season debut Wednesday night at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif.
Family-owned and operated since 1966, Golden State Restaurant Group owns a network of 43 McDonald’s franchises located throughout much of northern and central California, stretching from Modesto in Stanislaus County to the state capital in Sacramento County.
With the intent to shine light to their company’s mission of providing excellent service, guest satisfaction and community involvement, GSRG will rally behind Rico Abreu/Curb-Agajanian Racing throughout the next four months, kicking off with King of the West-NARC Series competition in Placerville.
All 22 nights of action with Golden State Restaurant Group on the wing panel, ranging from World of Outlaws action to Sprint Car Challenge Tour 360c.i. competition, will be contested within the heart of California’s open-wheel scene.
“On behalf of the Golden State Restaurant Group, we are excited to be in the position to be able to support and partner with Rico Abreu and Rico Abreu Racing,” said restaurant owner Dylan Schrader of GSRG. “We look forward to not only supporting Rico and his team throughout the racing season, but we are also excited to involve the community in order to expose this new relationship we have formed. We wish the best of luck to Rico and team on the remainder of the season.”
“We are very excited to have Golden State Restaurant Group join our team for the next few months. I’m confident we’ll do a great job in representing their organization at the highest level,” added Abreu. “They not only provide a great service, but they also do wonderful things for the surrounding communities within their restaurants’ markets. We want to do our part in sharing their mission with the race fans. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
