Scopyd Crossbows Backs Whitt’s No. 26
STATESVILLE, N.C. – Scorpyd Crossbows has joined BK Racing as a two-race primary sponsor aboard the No. 26 Toyota driven by recent addition Cole Whitt.
Scorpyd Crossbows will sponsor Whitt’s No. 26 this weekend at Richmond (Va.) Int’l Raceway and the following weekend at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway. Scorpyd Crossbows and Reverse Draw Technology are both creations of Crossbow innovator Jim Kempf. The technology that Jim Kempf created has now lead Scorpyd Crossbows to be one of the most effective hunting tools to date.
The Scorpyd Crossbows announcement comes on the heels of Swan Racing’s No. 26 Toyota team joining BK Racing as a third entry. The No. 26 Sprint Cup Series team was merged with BK Racing this week. Whitt will remain behind the wheel of the No. 26 with crew chief Randy Cox making the calls from atop the box.
“This is truly an exciting day for BK Racing,” said team owner Ron Devine. “I am thrilled to continue growing our organization into a top contending NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team. Cole is a very talented driver and Randy as his crew chief make a great combination and I’m excited to have them both in our stable.”
“We are extremely excited to be a sponsor in NASCAR and partner with BK Racing for select races in 2014,” said Scorpyd Crossbows President and CEO Jim Kempf. “I have been a big fan of NASCAR ever since I was a kid, this is a dream come true, and Scorpyd Crossbows has a lot in common with the BK Racing team. Scorpyd Crossbows makes the world’s fastest, highest performance crossbows, and we look forward to aligning ourselves with crossbow hunter and NASCAR driver Cole Whitt.”
“I’m really excited to get on the track for BK Racing. It was a lot of work this past week with the team swap, but I’m so thankful for the opportunity that Anthony and Ron have given me. Being an avid outdoorsman, it’s really cool to represent a brand like Scorpyd. I can’t wait to hit the track this weekend in Richmond.” commented Cole Whitt.
