HUNTERSVILLE, NC (November 1, 2016) – BK Racing announced that JAS Expedited Trucking will serve as the primary sponsor on Matt DiBenedetto’s No. 83 JAS Expedited Trucking Toyota Camry in the Can-Am 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.
The race on November 13, 2016 will be JAS Expedited Trucking’s first race with BK Racing. JAS Expedited Trucking LLC. is a small family-owned expedited trucking company, located in Imlay City, Michigan.
After 13 years of driving for other small fleet owners, Tony Freeland, owner of JAS, decided to purchase his first truck. With experience as both a driver and as an owner/operator, he thought he could provide a better environment for other drivers, so he started JAS Expedited Trucking and their second truck was purchased one year later. The company has since continued to grow.
“This relationship with JAS Expedited Trucking began earlier this season when we welcomed Tony as a guest for a race as well as during a visit to our shop,” said Doug Fritz, CMO of BK Racing. “We are proud to welcome a new partner to the BK Racing team and to NASCAR as well.”
“I have been a lifelong NASCAR supporter and now getting to see my company’s logo on a car is truly a dream come true,” said Tony Freeland II, General Manager and Owner of JAS Expedited Trucking. “The more I got to know Matt and the BK Racing team, the more certain I was that they would be a perfect fit for my goals for promoting JAS. After building my company over the years, this is a proud moment for both myself and my family. We’ll be cheering on Matt and the No. 83 JAS Expedited Trucking team at Phoenix.”
