SafeAuto Insurance Company, a leading state-minimum Insurance provider based in Columbus, Ohio, is the proud sponsor of NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Johnny Sauter and the No.13 SafeAuto Truck. In the final race of the season, Sauter executed a near-flawless performance at Homestead-Miami Speedway, taking home the checkered flag and winning his second race of the 2011 campaign.
“What a phenomenal year,” remarked Sauter. “I’ve always wanted to have two wins in the NASCAR series in the same year, so this is a huge accomplishment.” Earlier in the year, Sauter won one of the most exciting races of the season by defeating Kyle Busch at Martinsville. Sauter finished the 2011 season second in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series points standing and was a threat for the championship all year long. The Necedah, Wisconsin native finished in the top ten an astonishing 16 times!
The No.13 Truck has been vying for the championship all year long and SafeAuto has been thrilled to be a sponsor. The famous SafeAuto logo received amazing exposure throughout the country at famous racetracks such as Daytona, Bristol, and Talladega. SafeAuto also leveraged the sponsorship by conducting nationwide competitions on Facebook for “VIP” trips to races and routinely posting behind-the-scenes videos. “SafeAuto has been a huge supporter!” said Sauter. “They were extremely hands-on with this sponsorship and that was cool to see.”
“ SafeAuto was proud to have its name on the No. 13 truck this season. Johnny Sauter and the ThorSport race team were excellent partners during the 2011 Camping World Truck Series.” exclaimed SafeAuto President Jon Diamond. “We couldn’t have envisioned a better way to end the 2011 season then by winning this final race at Homestead.”
