Texas Lottery to Sponsor Justin Allgaier at in 2015 AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway

HScott Motorsports announced on Thursday that the Texas Lottery will serve as the primary sponsor of Justin Allgaier‘s No. 51 Chevrolet in the AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.  It is the state lottery’s first primary sponsorship in NASCAR.

“The Texas Lottery is excited to enter into a partnership with such a notable organization and thrilled to have Justin Allgaier as the driver,” Texas Lottery executive directory Gary Grief said on Thursday. “We are always looking for innovative ways to spread the word about the games of Texas and we anticipate that this sponsorship will be successful in supporting our mission to generate revenue for Texas public education.”

Team owner Harry Scott Jr. is “delighted to welcome Texas Lottery to the HScott Motorsports family.”

They’re a great organization, and any time we have the opportunity to bring a first-class partner on board, it shows the strength of our team.”

For HScott Motorsports, it’s not the first time that they’ve had a Texas-based primary sponsor at Texas Motor Speedway.  Back in 2013 when the team was still known as Phoenix Racing, the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau served as the team’s primary sponsor with Kyle Larson driving. Larson started 36th that day and finished 23rd.

I am really at a lose as to how this guy gets sponsors. So many drivers with potential with no rides because of no sponsors…screwy.

A Lottery sponsorship in NASCAR is a perfect marriage. Isn’t the series sponsorship up for sale? Now glad I don’t play the Texas Lottery. Doesn’t Gary (Good) Grief realize the chase is on and the 51 will get little, if any, exposure.
