"We're proud to have BUBBA burger® on board," Labonte said. "We're grateful to have some of the best sponsors in the sport supporting our efforts. This summer one of our biggest messages for our fans is to enjoy time with family and friends and get out and grill whether it's at home or at a sporting event."

In January, BUBBA burger® announced a two-race primary sponsorship with JTG Daugherty Racing during the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Pocono this week and also during the Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill. on September 16. 

BUBBA burger has had presence on Labonte's machine as an associate sponsor throughout the season at select events tying into the team's retail theme 'Racing Season is Grilling Season' along with Kingsford Charcoal, BUSH'S Beans and SCOTT Products.

"BUBBA burger® recognizes that NASCAR fans are very brand loyal and being part of NASCAR helps introduce our new product lines," according to Billy Morris President/CEO of BUBBA foods. "Our racing relationships allow us to partner with national brands that work well with our high quality BUBBA® products. We're really looking forward to being a primary sponsor at both Pocono and Chicagoland."

BUBBA burger® driver Labonte has enjoyed racing at Pocono recording three wins, five top-five and nine top-10 finishes in 27 starts. Before the typical practice sessions take place on Friday, there is a two-day NASCAR test session at the unique 2.5-mile tri-oval. The first Cup race on the new track surface is this Sunday and the second Pocono race will be August  5th. Both races have been reduced from 500 miles to 400 miles.

BUBBA burger is sold nationwide throughout the United States as well as world-wide through the U.S. Military Commissary system. BUBBA burger recently announced an expansion to their product line when they introduced BUBBA grillers. BUBBA grillers include items such as Italian Sausage, BUBBA brats, BUBBA steaks and BUBBA Pork Tenderloins. Race to your favorite local grocer's freezer and grab some BUBBA burgers or BUBBA grillers so that you receive first place this grilling season.
