Blackwell Angus Beef Race Car Takes Home First NASCAR Victory
The Blackwell Angus beef-sponsored Roush Fenway Racing team earned its first checkered flag at the Iowa Speedway on May 22. Ricky Stenhouse Jr., a 23-year-old native of Olive Branch, Miss. and 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series Rookie of the Year, received his first NASCAR Nationwide Series victory after leading a total of 41 laps throughout the afternoon.
Blackwell Angus beef is the lead sponsor of the No. 6 Ford Mustang. In 2011, the Cargill fresh beef brand expanded its sponsorship of Roush Fenway's NASCAR Nationwide Series team with an eight-race commitment as the primary sponsor of the No. 6 driver, Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
"We knew this day was coming, and we're glad to be right along side Ricky and the pit crew when it happened," said Ivan Brown, Angus brand manager, Cargill. "Ricky looked really good this weekend, and we couldn't ask for a better finish. We're excited for what this win can do for our retail partners."
