Estes Opts Out of 2015 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
Estes Express Lines, a national provider of freight transportation services, announced today it will not continue as the primary sponsor of the #13 ThorSport Toyota Tundra in the 2015 season of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
“Estes is proud to have been part of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2014. We found benefit in the brand promotion and employee engagement opportunities available through the sponsorship, and as much as we would have liked to continue working with ThorSport and driver Jeb Burton, we just weren’t able to reach mutually agreeable terms with the team,” said Rob Estes, President and CEO of Estes Express Lines.
“While many of us at Estes are disappointed we weren’t able to find a way to reasonably continue the sponsorship, this is an opportunity for us to direct even more attention to our core business. We still have every confidence in Jeb’s ability and performance as an up-and-coming NASCAR star, and we wish him, his family and everyone at ThorSport all the best in 2015 and beyond.”
