Racing Force Group and NASCAR Cup Series team RFK Racing have announced a multi-year collaborative partnership, that will see the team work exclusively with the industry leader in motorsports safety products.
RFK's teams will utilize OMP's firesuits throughout the season as the first NASCAR Cup Series team in the garage to be fully outfitted by OMP. Driver and team co-owner Brad Keselowski, 2012 season champion and 35-time race winner, will wear OMP racewear throughout the season, while he and teammate Chris Buescher will be outfitted by Bell Helmets, the leading manufacturer in helmet safety and design in motorsports.
NASCAR Cup Series is the top competition on global scale for stock car racing, which celebrates in 2023 its 75th anniversary season. The new campaign kicked-off with the Busch Light Clash at the Los Angeles on February 5th. The Daytona 500 on February 19th has been the first points race of the calendar, followed by the Pala Casino 400 at Fontana and the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, while the 36th and final event will take place at Phoenix Raceway on November 5th.
Kyle Kietzmann, Co-CEO of Racing Force USA, Inc., commented: "Racing Force is honored and excited to partner with RFK Racing and Brad Keselowski to develop racing safety equipment, purpose-built for use in NASCAR by drivers and crews. Having a team crew fully outfitted by the OMP brand is a milestone for the Group in the United States. RFK and Racing Force share the same commitment and passion for innovation and the application of technology to enhance safety and maximize performance. We look forward to a successful and collaborative partnership with RFK in 2023 and beyond to develop advanced safety equipment to provide protection and help the team perform at the highest level possible in one of the most demanding forms of motorsports in the world."
Brad Keselowski, RFK Racing driver and co-owner, added: "We share a commitment to innovating together to create the next generation of racing gear. It's always a pleasure to work with like-minded people in pushing the envelope in everything we do in racing - including keeping safety No. 1 in mind, along with maintaining style and comfort at the same time."
