Winston-Salem, NC – Kenzie Ruston has partnered with Bib’s Downtown for the NASCAR Hall of Fame 150 at Bowman Gray Stadium on Saturday May 31, 2014. The Bestern BBQ restaurant and its owners have been involved with the famed 1Ž4-mile for many years, which includes a current marketing partnership with the No. 71 modified, driven by Dean Ward. This support will now expand to a partnership with both Ben Kennedy Racing and it’s rising NASCAR K&N Pro Series Star Kenzie Ruston.

“Bib’s Downtown is very proud to be partnering with Kenzie Ruston in the upcoming NASCAR Hall of Fame 150 race at Historic Bowman Gray Stadium,” said Robert Moreau, co-owner of Bibs Downtown.  “Ms. Ruston made a great impression on us during last season’s race due to her outgoing spirit and obvious talent.   Kenzie raced hard every lap of this race and even came back through the challenging male dominated field to finish in the top five.  Bib’s Downtown supports athletes and others in our community who work hard at achieving their goals and we are honored to represent and work with this rising young NASCAR talent.”

Last season, Ben Kennedy, Team Principal of Ben Kennedy Racing, drove the #96 Chevrolet to victory in the NASCAR Hall of Fame 150. Ruston is poised to replicate that feat in the same car that Kennedy raced to victory last season. “I think I’m one of the few drivers who looks forward to this race”, said Ruston. “A track like Bowman Gray Stadium puts a lot of control back into the drivers hands. I know my team is going to show up with a strong car, so I’m really excited for the NASCAR Hall of Fame 150. Taking Bib’s Downtown to Victory Lane in the K&N Series would be great. They have been big supporters of racing over here, and they certainly aren’t strangers to Victory Lane.”
