WHITINSVILLE, Mass. – Stan Mertz Racing announced a partnership with the Twisted Tea and Truly Hard Seltzer brands for the upcoming season on Sunday.

Stan Mertz Racing driver Woody Pitkat is one of the most recognized fans of Twisted Tea in the modified community, and now, he will get to showcase both Twisted Tea and Truly Hard Seltzer brands on the No. 6 modified during the year.

A new paint scheme has been created by Thirty Two Signs that will be used to wrap the car.

“Stan Mertz Racing is thrilled to have these two Boston Beer Company flagship brands as our primary sponsors for the 2021 season,” Mertz said. “We will be rotating the brands on our car throughout the season at all of the tracks across New England. We can’t wait to showcase them on our modified, where we strive to end up in victory lane.”

Stan Mertz Racing already visited Victory Lane in a Twisted Tea-sponsored race last season, winning the Twisted Tea 80 at Stafford Motor Speedway. Now, they will be on the car for every race as primary sponsor for this year.

“When Stafford Motor Speedway partnered with Twisted Tea, I went to meet up with the local leader and he was an awesome, down to earth guy, and someone I knew I would love to work with,” Pitkat said. “The fact that Twisted Teas are my drink of choice, I knew it was someone we needed to partner with for sure. Having Twisted Tea and Truly Hard Seltzer brands on the car will be so exciting. I’m ready for 2021.”

With Pitkat behind the wheel, Stan Mertz Racing plans to compete in 10 races in New England – all six races with the Tri Track Open Modified Series and the four Stafford Motor Speedway open modified events.
