Killer Bees LLC and Blue Ox jointly announced that Blue Ox will serve as the primary sponsor of the #96 car driven by Ben Kennedy in the NASCAR K & N Pro Series East on Thursday (April 28) in Richmond International Speedway, Richmond, Va.

Blue Ox, of Pender, Neb., is a leading manufacturer of recreational vehicle and towing industry supplies and accessories.

“As the third generation owner of a family business, I am personally very excited to sponsor the #96 car this weekend,” Jay Hesse, president of Blue Ox, said in a news release. “Ben and his family’s time-honored foundation in NASCAR are a perfect reflection of Blue Ox’s respected tradition as the leader in the towing industry.”

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series features separate schedules and championships for the East and West, and makes up the top step of the NASCAR Home Tracks ladder. A launching pad for developmental drivers, as evidenced by the national series success of recent graduates Joey Logano, Trevor Bayne, Ricky Carmichael and Austin Dillon, the K&N Pro Series East has become the destination for the best up-and-coming prospects to launch their NASCAR careers, and the destination for fans to get a glimpse of the starts of tomorrow.
