Wicked Cushion Welcomes the Alkaline Water Company and its Alkaline88 brand as a new Partner for the 2020 Race Season
New York, NY (JANUARY 24, 2019) - Wicked Cushion, LLC announced today that it has arranged and is party to a new sponsorship agreement for Justin Sanders in the various Justin Sanders Racing prepared race cars and Brent Marks driving the CJB Motorsports number 5 and one other driver to be announced at a later date. Wicked Cushion signed a co-primary sponsorship agreement for Sanders and an associate sponsorship agreement for Marks for the 2020 racing season including events with the World of Outlaws, All-Star Circuit of Champions, King of the West Series, Sprint Car Challenge Tour, the ASCS National Tour and other events around the country.
Justin Sanders is one of the most prolific racers out of the California circuit. Justin has won a combined total of 30 races over the 2018 and 2019 race season, including the 2019 Copper Classic, making him one of the winningest drivers on the west coast. The Justin Sanders Racing team will carry the Alkaline88 branding on the body of its race cars as well as on the top of the top wing for the entire season.
The Alkaline88 branding will also be prominently displayed on the side rear panels as well as on the underside of the top wing on the CJB Motorsports number 5 for the entire 2020 racing season. Brent Marks is no stranger to competition as he has competed as a full-time World of Outlaws series driver over the past four years. Brent capped off an amazing 2019 race season with his win of the Williams Grove National Open!
“We are happy to be back with Wicked Cushion for 2020,” said Justin Sanders, driver of the Justin Sanders Racing sprint cars. We won quite a few races with a Wicked Cushion “WC” on the car in 2019 and are excited that they came back to help with this new sponsorship opportunity. “We’re are really looking forward to having Alkaline88 on board this year and know that the race fans are going to love learning about their amazing products”.
Brent Marks echoed the sentiment by saying that, “Wicked Cushion has been in constant contact with me for over a year. They have been trying to find the right fit with sponsorship opportunities and I am glad that we found an opportunity for Alkaline88 with the CJB 5 car. I look forward to adding to the Wicked Cushion winning tradition during the 2020 race season”!
“We are excited to partner with and introduce Alkaline88 products to the racing community as well as the Esports community,” said Matthew Henninger, founder of Wicked Cushion. “The Alkaline88 products are really fantastic and we have been hooked on their taste profile ever since they were introduced to our company in late 2019. We know that all of the race fans will love their alkaline and flavored waters.”
