LG Air Conditioning Technologies Joins Baker Distributing's 2019 NASCAR Sponsorship.
NASCAR Truck Series Partnership with Nationwide Distributor Raises LG's Profile with HVAC Customers, Installers.

LG Electronics USA Air Conditioning Technologies, in conjunction with nationwide HVAC distributor Baker Distributing Company, is supporting winning race car driver Gus Dean and Young's Motorsports for the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series 2019 season.

The collaboration kicks off with the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona International Speedway on Feb. 15. LG Air Conditioning Technologies will support Dean in a primary role for eight races – with LG branding included on trucks, equipment, uniforms and promotional items, while serving as an associate partner for the remaining 15 races of the season.

"By supporting Gus and the Young's Motorsports team during the 2019 NASCAR Truck Series, LG and Baker are forging a new path together on the race track," said Kevin McNamara, senior vice president and general manager, Air Conditioning Technologies, LG Electronics USA. "This alliance marks the next evolution in an already successful collaboration between two companies that are dedicated to bringing award-winning solutions to the HVAC industry."

Dean, a native of Bluffton, S.C., is a two-time winner of the ARCA (Automobile Racing Club of America) Racing Series. For the 2019 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, he is joining Young's Motorsports full-time to compete for Rookie of the Year honors in the No. 12 Chevrolet Silverado. 2018 ARCA Championship Crew Chief Jeff Stankiewicz will lead the team's efforts this season.
