STATESVILLE, N.C. (June 6, 2014) – BK Racing announced today a partnership with Vertx® for the upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Kentucky Speedway on June 28. Vertx® will ride-along with the No.83 car driven by Sunoco Rookie of the Year contender Ryan Truex.
Born out of necessity, Vertx® was established after a top federal agency approached a group of award-winning designers with one simple request – to develop a line of apparel bearing full tactical features and a low-profile appearance for covert application. Since hitting shelves in 2009, Vertx has evolved into a brand known for durability, fit and function, crossing over into the lifestyle of operational athletes. With performance in the forefront, Vertx® delivers the best in apparel and accessories, from durable yet comfortable pants to feature-rich every day carry bags and packs.
“Vertx® is excited to bring our high-performance apparel to the track,” said Ginger Rohlfs, Director of Marketing for Vertx®. “Our core audience of military and public safety officers know Vertx® stands for durable functionality. Now our goal is to deliver the best in comfort to those who demand more from their wear on a daily basis. Outfitting the BK Racing team is exciting for us and we are looking forward to a great future.”
"Vertx® will be a tremendous partner for BK Racing," said team owner Ron Devine. "The fine products Vertx® offers will be used each and every day both in the shop and at the track.”
