Burger King signs NASCAR licensing agreement with BK Racing: Burger King Corp. has entered into a licensing agreement with BK Racing LLC. As part of the agreement, BKC has licensed the primary paint scheme on the #83 and 93 Toyota Camry Sprint Cup cars, which debuted during Monday's delayed NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Daytona International Speedway. "I'm extremely happy to welcome Burger King Corp. to the team and really proud to be associated with such a great brand," said Scott Gunderson, president and co-owner of BK Racing LLC and a Burger King franchisee. "This demonstrates another important step in getting the BK Racing team ready for the season. As a longtime franchisee, I look forward to a successful racing season and know firsthand the benefits of a partnership with a winning team." BKC will leverage the sponsorship both on and off the track through select regional marketing programs and promotions. "This sponsorship with the BK Racing team provides the perfect scenario to get back into NASCAR. The team's passion, both on and off the track, resonates very well with an important segment of Burger King customers," said Alex Macedo, senior vice president, North America marketing, Burger King Corp.(Quick Service Restaurant News)(2-29-2012)

That's good news. Those guys ran good with the limited funds and time they had to prepare for Daytona. Wish Reutimann would drive the #93 full time but guessing he won't back out on TBR.

So does this mean Burger King is actually sponsoring them now?
Yeah, I'm unclear on that too. To me, it seems like the team now has the option to sell merchandise bearing the Burger King logo, but no money is being transferred. Perhaps I'm wrong, but the item doesn't clearly define what's happening here.

Was it common knowledge that Travis Kvapil will be in the No. 93 at Phoenix?

Oh yeah, never mind. Because Reutimann will be in the 10.

The statement is kind of unclear. It is nice to see that a team that didn't exist a month ago was able to leverage the exposure they got into some form of help from a major multi-million dollar company.

It will be interesting to see if the #10 or the #93 would have been the better full time ride for Reut. I was pleased with BK's performance at Daytona. They were able to stay with the pack and Reut even ran as high as 7th for awhile. Their performance this weekend will be more telling.

yeah, they announced kvapil was driving for them before speedweeks. personally, i'll be upset if reutimann drivers the #93 for the other 9 races danica is in the #10. reuty is already driving 10-12 truck races to make up for those. kvapil deserves to drive the #93 for the rest of the season.

This seems like a legit sponsorship.. by this line: "This sponsorship with the BK Racing team provides the perfect scenario to get back into NASCAR"

So, maybe it's a legit (paid) sponsor now?

Thats a iracing render not a offical paint scheme.
Robby Gordon's Daytona paint scheme was on a NASCAR The Game 2011 render. LOL!

Landon is on iRacing too.. so it's not a stretch that they had someone there paint it up for them. Plus, whomever did it obviously didn't do it for kicks to go as far as to make the Toyota grill/headlights, you don't have Toyota's in iRacing.

Well for one its not even Landons name on the car cant tell who it is and the iracing decal on the post dont think iracing is sponsoring any team.
