U.S. Xpress to sponsor TriStar Motorsports at Chicagoland Speedway

TriStar Motorsports is pleased to announce a one-race partnership with U.S. Xpress, the nation's third largest privately-owned truckload carrier.

Operating more than 8,000 tractors and 22,000 trailers, U.S. Xpress will serve as the primary sponsor of the No. 19 Chevrolet Impala in the Dollar General 300 at Chicagoland Speedway with NASCAR veteran Mike Bliss behind the wheel.

This partnership will mark the company's first NASCAR primary sponsorship endeavor.

"We're very excited about the race this weekend and can't wait to watch the U.S. Xpress car go around the track," U.S. Xpress President John White said. "It's an honor to be partnering with not only a great driver but also a well respected company like TriStar Motorsports."

Bliss reiterates White's excitement about the partnership.

"It's an honor to work with U.S. Xpress for this weekend's race at Chicagoland Speedway," Bliss said. "Not only is their equipment first class, they also put a large emphasis on commitment and customer service which is just one of the many reasons they are celebrating their 25th year in operation. I know we will represent them well and I hope we put on a great show for them and the fans this weekend."
