NASCAR: CorvetteParts.net to sponsor Travis Kvapil’s Ford at Kentucky

2 Comments

This one doesn’t make a ton of sense, but it’s happening anyway.

CorvetteParts.net will sponsor a Ford at Kentucky, Travis Kvapil’s No. 32 FAS Lane Racing Ford for Frank Stoddard.

It’s part of a deal via the parent company Keen Parts, which will also see the CorvetteParts.net signage on Chad Boat’s NASCAR Nationwide Series car on Friday night.

Keen is based in nearby Cleves, Ohio; Tom and TJ Keen, the company’s owners, considered Kentucky this sponsor’s home race.

Keen has been on the car for several races this year, but not with the CorvetteParts.net signage. It will this weekend at Kentucky.

Kvapil hasn’t had much to be talked about this year anyway, with only one top-30 finish (29th at Pocono on June 8) all season in 11 starts. He ranks 38th in the points standings.

The focus this week is on the United States Grand Prix from¬†Circuit of The Americas in Austin, but because it’s Tuesday, the Pirelli tire selections for next week’s Mexican Grand Prix are also out.

And for once, there’s a wide variance in selections.

Both Red Bull and Ferrari have gone for a more balanced portion of supersoft and ultrasoft tires, with Red Bull only selecting six sets of ultrasoft tires.

Meanwhile all other teams have gone between eight to 10 sets of ultrasoft tires.

The full breakdown is below.
