Ty Dillon, K&L Team for Michigan

A new sponsor and new colors comes aboard Germain Racing’s No. 13 Chevrolet this weekend at Michigan International Speedway.

K&L Ready Mix joins Ty Dillon and the team for Sunday’s (Aug. 11) Consumers Energy 400.

This is the first time K&L Ready Mix will be in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, but it previously partnered with Dillon in the Gander Outdoors Truck Series at Eldora Speedway in 2017-2018.

“K&L Ready Mix has been a great partner of mine for many years,” Dillon said in a team release. “I’m thrilled that our relationship has evolved into an opportunity to have them on our No. 13 Camaro ZL1 for the race this weekend. I’ve found success at Michigan before, and I’m looking forward to heading back with K&L Ready Mix to see what our Germain Racing team can do.”

Dillon has seven Cup starts at Michigan, earning a track best finish of 14th in 2015. In addition, he has two top 10s in four Xfinity Series starts and a third- and sixth-place finish in the Truck Series in two starts.

The Consumers Energy 400 is set to run on Sunday, Aug. 11 at 3 p.m. ET, with TV coverage from NBC Sports Network.

He will be driving Cup for this sponsor so forget the other series finishes. As far back as he finishes in Cup this sponsor will be lucky if it’s ever shown on tv. I reckon it’s possible he may stay out while others pit just to get air time. Hope K&L didn’t pony up too much money.
