MARTINSVILLE, Va., April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Outback Steakhouse was the primary sponsor of Ryan Newman and the No. 39 Chevrolet for the race in Martinsville yesterday where he crossed the finish line 1st after starting in the 5th position. Outback Steakhouse is celebrating with Bloomin' Monday which means free Bloomin' Onions® available to each table who mentions Newman's 1st place finish.
The Outback Steakhouse sponsorship of Ryan Newman began this season and whenever Newman finishes in the top-10, fans will get a free Bloomin' Onion® at Outback Steakhouse on the Monday immediately following the race. It's a promotion that has generated more interest than ever in where Newman and his No. 39 Chevrolet finish during each Sprint Cup race in 2012. So far, Outback and Newman have celebrated two Bloomin' Mondays after top-10 finishes with the 1st place finish in Martinsville marking the third.
"Our goals at the beginning of the season are always to win every race," said Newman, driver of the No. 39 Outback Steakhouse Chevrolet. "But we know it isn't realistic to win every race on the schedule, so we want to get as many top-5s and top-10s as possible. Now, we have even more incentive to get a top-10 finish every weekend – for us and for the fans. A free Bloomin' Onion® for every top-10 finish? You can count me in for that."
Outback Steakhouse will also be the primary sponsor of Newman and the No. 39 Chevrolet in Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway in August. When not serving as a primary sponsor, Outback Steakhouse will be an associate sponsor with placement on the B-post of the No. 39 Chevrolet Impala.
"Congratulations to Ryan on this tremendous win at Martinsville! We are thrilled to be partners with No. 39 and Stewart-Hass Racing and look forward to many more wins, top-10 finishes and Bloomin' Mondays," said Jeff Smith, president of Outback.
