A.J. Allmendinger, driver of the No. 16 Camaro ZL1 for Kaulig Racing (seen in red shirt and shoes in above photo) and Andy’s Frozen Custard owners Cara, Dana and Andy Kuntz have announced their partnership for NASCAR All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway for the second year running. They have also unveiled a new product: the All-Star Jackhammer.
In addition to the All-Star competition on May 22, Andy’s will act as the primary partner on Kaulig Racing’s No. 16 Chevrolet and race entitlement sponsor at the Andy’s Frozen Custard 300 at Texas Motor Speedway on September 24 for the NXS race. Andy’s will also bring back the A.J. AlmondDinger treat for a limited time.
In adding color to the continued partnership, a new paint scheme featuring the Andy’s logo is now in high profile on Allmendinger’s car, which will be driven in the All-Star race on May 22.
“It means so much to our family, as lifelong motorsports fans, to be supporting NASCAR via our partnership with A.J. and Kaulig Racing,” said Andy Kuntz, chief executive officer of the Springfield, Missouri-headquartered frozen custard chain. “Our brand hallmarks are like that of NASCAR: quality, constant innovation, a commitment to family and community and, of course, speed. We are delighted that our loyal customer base continues to grow with our expanded position in the sport and that our sponsorships of tracks, drivers and races are contributing to our development strategy.”
As an added bonus for auto racing fans, a new, limited-time All-Star Jackhammer will be offered at all Andy’s locations through May 22. The sweet treat features Andy’s chocolate frozen custard blended with Oreo and peanut butter, then drilled and filled with marshmallow.
“I’m excited to have Andy’s Frozen Custard back with us for a second-straight year,” said Allmendinger. “Having them onboard last year, as well as having a flavor of custard named after me, was awesome. Now being able to do it again this year for the All-Star race makes this relationship even more special.”
Last year in only its first, limited schedule NCS season, Kaulig Racing won the Verizon 250 at The Brickyard at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Allmendinger, making them eligible to compete in this year’s All-Star race.
“We’re pumped to be able to compete in the NASCAR All-Star race in just our first, full season in the Cup Series,” said Kaulig Racing team owner Matt Kaulig. “Winning a Cup race as a young team and being eligible for the All-Star race is truly an honor and having Andy’s team up with us for this race makes it even more special.”
