BK Racing will be adding a new driver and a new sponsor to match for select 2016 Sprint Cup Series Races, starting with late April’s Richmond International Raceway’s 2016 Toyota Owners 400.
Ryan Ellis will make his first start for BK Racing in the No. 93 Toyota Camry, sponsored by new sponsor Ellis brought with him, ScienceLogic.
“It’s an amazing opportunity for me and I’m so happy to bring ScienceLogic with me to the BK Racing program,” Ellis said.
“I’ve gotten to know the ScienceLogic employees and brand a lot in the last year, and really feel like part of their family.”
Ellis is a a third generation racer driver who has competed in the NASCAR Xfinity and Camping World Truck Series since 2012, along with a single start last year in the Sprint Cup Series for Circle Sport’s No. 33 entry at the fall 2015 Phoenix International Raceway Sprint Cup race.
His best finish in the Xfinity series came in 2015, driving the No. 15 for Rick Ware Racing at Watkins Glen, finishing 22nd. His best finish in the Camping World Truck Series came FDNY Racing, also in 2015, finishing 16th at Daytona to start the season.
“Ryan is a driver that we’ve been watching for quite some time as he raced in the Trucks and XFINITY,” said BK Racing team owner Ron Devine.
“We’re proud to bring him to BK Racing this season and welcome ScienceLogic to our family.”
The sponsor ScienceLogic describes themselves as the global leader in hybrid IT monitoring for the network of everything, and has over 25,000 global service providers, enterprises, and government organizations utilizing ScienceLogic.
“We see a lot of similarities between ScienceLogic and our driver Ryan Ellis — both in our passion for what we do every day and the speed at which we are advancing and growing in our respective professions. ScienceLogic is proud to continue our participation in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series by sponsoring Ryan Ellis and BK Racing this season,” said Yama Habibzai, Chief Marketing Officer at ScienceLogic.
Further dates for the driver/sponsor combination have not been announced.
