Nascar’s Ryan Reed Gets New Drink Sponsor

By Community | May 4, 2012

Ryan Reed, who drives the No. 15 Venturini Motorsports racecar in Nascar, has announced he has a new partner on board, PacificHealth Laboratories, Inc (PHLI) and their premium sports product, ACCELERADE.


Through PHLI, ACCELERADE has begun an exciting new joint venture with Ryan Reed, powering his health on the race track, and with Ryan’s Mission.


As a JDRF National Celebrity Advocate, Ryan’s awareness and funding drive for the cure of type 1 diabetes (T1D) inspired PHLI and ACCELERADE.


Fred Duffner, president and CEO of PacificHealth Laboratories, said: “We are very proud of our partnership with Ryan Reed and his mission to help inspire other athletes like himself with diabetes as well as to help fund research for a cure. We are proud to say that ACCELERADE is able to Power Ryan’s Passion.”


“The partnership with ACCELERADE just seems perfect,” said Ryan. “Ever since I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, my doctor (Dr. Anne Peters) told me to make sure I always have ACCELERADE in the race car to keep my blood sugar up during the race. I can’t race without ACCELERADE.”


Most racecar drivers usually have a water drink bag inside of their racecar to keep hydrated. Along with all the extra wires and gauges inside of Ryan’s car to monitor his blood sugar levels, Ryan also has an extra drink bag with ACCELERADE in it to maintain his blood sugar.


“It is really neat that PacificHealth Labs found my story and need for their product so compelling that they joined my team and mission. It means a lot to have a company with so much passion stand behind me,” said Ryan. “It is pretty cool that ACCELERADE is going to be in my drink bag and on the in car camera spot light at Talladega — how perfect!”


Reed looks to back up his first Superspeedway ARCA start with Venturini Motorsports where he qualified on the front row.


“After running second most of the race at Daytona I know our chances are good here at Talladega. The guys at Venturini Motorsports have worked really hard to bring me a great racecar. I have a great team behind me and I just have to run a smart race,” said Reed.
