Male Hair Care Provider Expands their “Championship Experience”
Tuesday, February 7, 2012 – (Austin, TX)
In a 1-year agreement, Sport Clips Haircuts becomes a key sponsor of the 07 Sellers Racing Chevrolet, in exchange for product endorsement and social media marketing support from Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing.
“We just feel so fortunate to continue to build the foundation of our program from within our home state of Texas. Sport Clips aspires to build a “Championship Experience” for their customers, and we believe that Austin, as a rising NASCAR champion who has built a very strong social media following, will bring tangible value to their brand,” says Tim Self, President of AM Racing.
Austin will compete in 27 NASCAR late model races in 2012 and will move to North Carolina in February to be closer to the team.
“Our momentum is really beginning to take hold as we get ready to start the 2012 season. It really feels good to get support from a Texas company. In a way, it helps make me feel like I’m still at home even though we’re moving out to North Carolina. This puts me one step closer to realizing my dreams, and I will definitely work hard to deliver results for Sport Clips and for my fans,” says Austin Wayne Self.
“We have enjoyed our partnership with Joe Gibbs Racing and are always looking to build relationships with emerging champions who have the ability to reach the top of their sport. We believe Austin has the talent and the support system to get to that level, and we also really appreciate the fact that he’s from Texas,” says Sport Clips CEO and Founder Gordon Logan. “As his sponsor and hair care provider, Sport Clips looks forward to the 2012 season and to helping him keep that winning look both on and off the track.”
