PITTSBURGH & CHICAGO & CONCORD, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 6, 2019-- If you were to ask Ryan Newman what his favorite food on race day is, he would tell you it’s Oscar Mayer Bacon.

“We’re excited to continue our promotion of Oscar Mayer’s quality meats this season,” said Ryan Newman, driver of the No. 6 Oscar Mayer Ford Mustang. “This paint scheme is mouthwatering. Almost everyone loves bacon, so there’s no better way to celebrate it than to spotlight the gold standard of Oscar Mayer Bacon on the side of our car this weekend in Phoenix.”

As part of the season-long rollout celebrating Oscar Mayer’s quality meat offerings, Newman’s scheme this weekend in Phoenix will feature individual slices of delicious bacon across the machine he will wheel in Sunday’s Ticket Guardian 500.

“We at Oscar Mayer are incredibly passionate about bacon, and we know that a lot of drivers and racing fans share that love as well,” said Matt Riezman, Associate Director of Marketing, Oscar Mayer. “We’re proud to offer families the gold standard of bacon that they know they can always count on to be high-quality and cook up perfectly every time.”

Oscar Mayer Bacon is hand-trimmed, naturally hardwood smoked and naturally sugar cured — it’s no surprise that it’s on more family tables in the America than any other bacon out there. The Oscar Mayer team is proud of the quality taste and flavors featured in their line of bacon products. In addition to the best-selling Naturally Hardwood Smoked Original Cut, the Oscar Mayer Bacon line includes a variety of different cuts, from thick cut to center cut, flavors such as Cracked Black Pepper and Maple, as well as Turkey and Fully Cooked bacon products.

After kicking off the 2019 season debuting the Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh car in the Daytona 500 and this weekend’s bacon car, the nationally recognized brand will continue to celebrate its love of meat throughout the season. In addition to the bacon wrap, the iconic Wienermobile will once again take the track at ISM Raceway. Be sure to look for the 27-foot hot dog on wheels and its full-time brand ambassadors, the famous Hotdoggers.

Phoenix happens to be a special place for Newman, who claimed his last win in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) there in 2017. He also won at the 1-mile track there in 2010. Overall, the 2008 Daytona 500 Champion has 12 top-ten and 10 top-five finishes along with four poles.
