CONCORD, N.C. (Jan. 30, 2023) – RFK Racing has announced that King’s Hawaiian, the iconic bread company that joined the team in 2022, has returned in an expanded role and will serve as a primary partner for Brad Keselowski and the No. 6 team in multiple races in 2023 and beyond.
“Our team and myself are really excited to continue our partnership with King’s Hawaiian, a brand that is a favorite of many fans and people across the country,” said Keselowski. “We had a ton of fun highlighting their products and activations in 2022, but are even more excited to see what 2023 brings. We’re thankful to the team at King’s Hawaiian for their continued support of our team and look forward to a fun and successful season in 2023.”
King’s Hawaiian, known for its famous irresistibly soft, and fluffy dinner rolls with just the right touch of sweetness – returns for its second season in the NASCAR Cup Series with Keselowski. RFK worked in conjunction with King’s Hawaiian to feature the ‘Slider Sunday’ theme, America’s new favorite mealtime ritual, across its social channels in 2022, with more exciting content planned for this season.
“We are so excited to be back as a partner,” said Chad Donvito, President, King’s Hawaiian. “We can’t wait to watch the King’s Hawaiian No. 6 Ford Mustang fly around the track for Slider Sundays throughout the season. We love bringing families together over their love of fast cars and delicious sliders.”
