We are proud to announce that Windward has officially ventured into NASCAR! Never in a million years could we have envisioned seeing our logo on a racecar. However, thanks to Dollar Shave Club and their #DSC500 promotion, we were 1 of 500 businesses picked to be featured on Matt Tifft’s No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR XFINITY Series. The DSC500 was Dollar Shave Club’s way to pay it forward and celebrate small businesses by giving 500 companies a chance to be a NASCAR sponsor for one day on Saturday March 10th, 2018 at ISM Raceway in Phoenix.
“We definitely appreciate [Dollar Shave Club] letting these small business owners have a chance to have their logo on a NASCAR,” said Matt just before the start of the race.
With our logo on the hood of the car and jerky in hand, we eagerly tuned in to cheer Matt on. After a long day and a rare rain delay in the desert, Matt was able to power through the wet conditions and finish strong in 7th place overall. It was his first top 10 finish this racing season and we are sure there will be many more to come.
We can’t say enough how proud we are to have partnered up with Dollar Shave Club and Matt Tifft. On this day, Windward was just 1 of 500 logos represented on a NASCAR but it got us thinking about how cool it would be to have one to ourselves…Stay tuned for any future Windward racing updates, in the meantime we will soak this one in and focus on making great jerky.
