BugBand joins Cornett-Ching and her Race 101 team as a new partner for 2016. The company, which makes an all-natural, DEET-FREE insect repellent, will not only have their logo on her NASCAR K&N Pro Series car, but they will also support her in the ARCA Racing Series and Super Late Model events she will be racing while in Florida.
In a continuing effort to provide support to the Tim Horton Children's Foundation, the Summerland, British Columbia native has teamed up with BugBand and will use that partnership to provide insect repellents to the camp throughout the year.
"BugBand has a great all natural product that I'm proud to say we will be able to give to all the kids who attend Tim Horton Children's Foundation camp Kentahten this year,” said Cornett-Ching.
After making three K&N Pro Series East starts last year, Cornett-Ching announced in January that she will race the full schedule this year in pursuit of Rookie of the Year honors. Her car number in NASCAR KNPSE events will be No. 02.
The NASCAR KNPSE season kicks off on Sunday, February 14th, with the Jet Tools 150 at New Smyrna Speedway.
"It's an exciting next step in my career to race under the NASCAR banner just one step away from the Truck and Xfinity level,” Cornett-Ching added.
However, before taking the green flag at New Smyrna, the Summerland, British Columbia native will return to the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards, where she competed full-time last year. She will be making her second start at the world-famous Daytona International Speedway, after debuting in the ARCA Series on the 2.5-mile high banks last year.
"Last year we came here on a hope and dream, while I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to do it again, this year we enter the weekend with much higher expectations,” she said. “A top-five finish would be a great way to kick the year off and head to my season debut in the NASCAR K&N East Series at New Smyrna with momentum."
Cornett-Ching is currently the only female driver on the entry list for ARCA’s 53rd visit to Daytona, which will be broadcast live on FS1 Saturday, February 13th beginning at 4:00pm Eastern.
