Texas Motor Speedway has announced that Duck Commander, owned by the Robertson clan of Duck Dynasty fame, will sponsor the annual spring NASCAR race. The Duck Commander 500 will take place on April 6, 2014, making it the seventh race in NASCAR's 2014 season. The agreement with Duck Commander is for three years, with a renewal option for three more. The race has had multiple sponsors since it began in 1997, although Samsung was the primary sponsor from 2002 to 2012. The Robertson family is expected to play a big part in the race festivities, including one member or another serving as grand marshal and honorary starter.
Uncle Si's Tea™ will be introduced and sold at track in single-serve options in both the sweet and unsweetened varieties. Texas Motor Speedway also will look to integrate products such as Duck Commander Family Foods’ BBQ sauce, salsa and beef jerky with the speedway signature concession items.
Tickets for the Duck Commander 500 go on sale on Friday, February 14, although you can get tickets early by purchasing season tickets or becoming a member of the Texas Motor Speedway Fan Club.
