STATESVILLE, N.C. (Wednesday, Feb. 17) – Brad Keselowski Racing announced today that Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO), a leading global aero communications service provider, will serve as primary sponsor for the No. 2 Gogo Ford F-150 driven by Austin Theriault in the season-opening NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race February 19 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway.
Gogo entered into a multi-faceted personal services partnership with NASCAR champion Brad Keselowski in 2015. The company seized the opportunity to expand its relationship with Keselowski to include an on-truck branding component in the season-opening Truck Series race at Daytona. Additionally the Gogo company jet will be staged at SheltairFBO at Daytona Beach International Airport throughout race week to demonstrate its products and services.
“We’re very excited to expand our partnership with Brad Keselowski,” said John Wade, Gogo Business Aviation’s Executive Vice President and General Manager. “Brad has been a tremendous asset to the Gogo brand. We didn’t hesitate to jump at this terrific opportunity and create a highly visible Gogo race week with different touch points. It’s going to be such a thrill to see Austin and the No. 2 Gogo Ford F-150 on the racetrack at Daytona.”
Gogo offers a complete suite of solutions including in-flight Internet, entertainment, text messaging and a host of other communications-related services to the commercial and business aviation markets, and is widely credited with many of the industry’s most influential achievements.
“It’s always exciting when a partner like Gogo grows their relationship,” Keselowski said. “Gogo has made such a positive difference in what I do both as a driver and team owner by allowing me to stay connected when I travel. I’m confident that Austin and our race team will deliver a quality performance and experience for them at Daytona.”
Gogo’s partnership is a perfect fit with Keselowski, one of NASCAR’s most tech-savvy and high-profile drivers. The 2012 Sprint Cup Series champion and 2010 XFINITY Series champion is also the owner of Brad Keselowski Racing, an organization that fields two full-time entries in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. Those responsibilities – plus interacting with his Twitter followers (560,000 and counting), whom Keselowski considers his “fan club” – add up to a critical need for communications services whether on the ground or in the air.
Gogo is a leading global aero-communications service provider that offers in-flight Internet, entertainment, text messaging, voice, connected aircraft services and a host of other communications-related services to the commercial and business aviation markets.
