Mistic, maker of the HAUS Personal Vaporizer and other high quality, value-priced vapor products, is headquartered in Charlotte, N.C. and is entering its second year as a full-season partner of SH Rallycross. HAUS served as primary sponsor for the No. 07 SH Racing Ford Fiesta during last year’s GRC event at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway where Piquet Jr. finished on the podium placing third.
“After just one season, HAUS is quickly becoming the personal vaporizer and e-liquid of choice for Rallycross and motor sports fans across the country,” said James “Sulli” Sullivan, principal,SH Rallycross. “With the race on the base being live on NBC, this is going to be an incredible moment for the HAUS brand and the fans alike as we will be debuting a special livery to celebrate the Fourth of July.”
Piquet Jr., who became the historic first Formula E champion last weekend, earned his fifth podium of his Red Bull GRC career during the 2015 series kickoff event held in Ft. Lauderdale, as well as his eighth and ninth career heat victories. Last weekend at Daytona he finished seventh in Race 1 and sixth in Race 2. Piquet Jr. is currently in fourth place in the driver championship with 106 points, 31 points out of the lead. The former Formula One and NASCAR driver was in a tight points race in 2014 leading most of the season. He ended up finishing fourth overall in GRC supercars division, with four podiums and seven heat wins.
“It’s great to have HAUS Personal Vaporizers as our sponsor for the MCAS event,” said Piquet Jr. “This is the second year that Mistic has been a supporter of SH Rallycross and I am proud to have a North Carolina based company represented on my car with this awesome livery for the Fourth of July at the Marine Corps Air Station in Jacksonville, N.C. I look forward to giving Mistic and their guests something to cheer about in their backyard over the Fourth of July weekend.”
