Benicia, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2010
Red Line Synthetic Oil Corp. is proud to announce the continuation of its NASCAR Nationwide primary sponsorship of MacDonald Motorsports and driver Michael McDowell for this weekend's upcoming Camping World 300 event at Fontana, California's Auto Club Speedway. In addition to Fontana, Red Line Oil will also support the team at the upcoming Dollar General 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway and the O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge at Texas Motor Speedway.
"The car looks great, the team works hard, and our customers and fans all responded in a big way to our sponsorship," said Cameron Evans, Director of Sales and Marketing for Red Line Oil. "We like this program since they were customers of our products long before we ever worked together at this level."
The MacDonald/Red Line team will campaign its black and red Dodge at the Camping World 300. Red Line has a long-standing relationship with MacDonald Motorsports, as the North Carolina based team has relied on Red Line synthetic lubricants for years to protect its engines and drivetrain components under the most punishing conditions at the toughest races on the stock car circuit.
McDowell took an unorthodox route to driving a stock car, first by establishing himself on the international racing stage as the first Junior American to ever podium in an International Competition CIK-FIA sanctioned event. He then moved on to the Star Mazda Series, where he worked extensively with Red Line products in his race cars. He took the series by storm in 2003, finishing in second place overall and earning Rookie of the Year honors and in 2004 became the Star Mazda North American Champion. Since that time he has spent time driving in ARCA, Grand Am, and Sprint Cup cars before being named the driver of the MacDonald Motorsports Nationwide car. McDowell lives in the Charlotte-area with wife Jami and son Christopher.
