By Community | June 22, 2014
7-Eleven, Inc. with AmeriGas will be the primary sponsor on the No. 32 car owned by Go FAS Racing and driven by Boris Said in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series road course race at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway on Sunday, June 22.
“I’m thrilled to be back in a car sponsored by 7-Eleven,” commented Said. “We were partners at the 2008 Sonoma race with 7-Eleven and Slurpee on the car and I am pleased to be able to continue that partnership again this year with 7-Eleven and AmeriGas. I’m looking forward to having a great weekend back on the track. I’ve always enjoyed Sonoma and have had some solid top-10 finishes there. I’m looking forward to adding to that number on Sunday.”
Said has competed in 14 Sprint Cup races at Sonoma, earning one pole position and five top-10 finishes. In 47 career Sprint Cup Series starts, Said has earned two top-five finishes, eight top-10s and two pole positions (Sonoma in June 2003 and Daytona Beach, Fla., in July 2006).
“AmeriGas is excited to partner with 7-Eleven for this sponsorship in Sonoma with Go FAS Racing,” said Andy Patton, AmeriGas’ vice president of corporate development. “This is a way to market our partnership together to NASCAR fans around the country. Fans everywhere are using our product for grilling and camping at races and 7-Eleven provides for quick and easy propane exchange.”
“Ever since Boris and I started together in 2006, we have had a shot to win in Sonoma. I know with Boris in the car this weekend we will have another opportunity to compete for a win,” said Frank Stoddard, owner of Go Fas Racing. “We’ve been working over the past few years to have 7-Eleven back with us and with the support of AmeriGas this year we were able to bring it all together. We’re all looking forward to the race weekend and hopefully some great results for 7-Eleven and AmeriGas.”
