Ryan Vargas will be sponsored by TikTok for the rest of the NASCAR Xfinity Series season, JD Motorsports with Gary Keller announced Sept. 24.
Vargas will drive the No. 6 Chevrolet in the remaining six races following this weekend, beginning at Talladega Superspeedway.
“TikTok has provided me with an incredible outlet to reach new fans and demographics through fun and creative content, and I’ve seen the highest growth in followers on TikTok over my other social channels,” Vargas said in a team release. “The opportunity to run the No. 6 TikTok Chevrolet Camaro in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for the rest of the season is an absolute dream come true.
“Johnny Davis and the whole JD Motorsports with Gary Keller team took a chance on me last year and I’m excited to bring this amazing TikTok partnership their way. I wouldn’t want to make this partnership a reality anywhere else.”
THE CAT IS OUT OF THE BAG!
I’m proud to announce my partnership with @tiktok_us as we will carry their colors on our #6 Camaro for the REST OF THE 2020 XFINITY SERIES SEASON!
