Corey LaJoie driving Hawkeyes colors at Iowa

The No. 7 Chevrolet of Corey LaJoie will have University of Iowa colors it it this weekend for the Cup Series’ Iowa Corn 350 Powered by Ethanol at Iowa Speedway.

On the hood of the car will be the Iowa Hawkeyes logo while Gainbridge will appear on the side panels.

Gainbridge®, a Group 1001 company, is a proud sponsor of Iowa Athletics. The company is unique as it sponsors both the No. 7 team and recently signed a multi-year deal with former Hawkeye Catlin Clark.

“The No. 7 is extra special this weekend as we bring together two unique sports properties from our portfolio and give Iowans a home-state car to pull for in the inaugural NASCAR Cup Series race at Iowa Speedway,” said Mike Nichols, Chief of Sponsorship and Activation at Group 1001. “From Caitlin Clark to now this, Gainbridge® has stepped up to support Iowa athletics and we hope that all of Iowa will rally around Corey LaJoie and cheer him on to victory lane.”

“The NASCAR event at Iowa Speedway is a marquee event for the state and we’re thankful that Gainbridge® is shining a big spotlight on Learfield and Iowa athletics,” said Gabe Aguirre, Vice President & General Manager, Hawkeye Sports Properties. “We’re all rooting for Corey LaJoie in that No. 7.”

The Iowa Corn 350 powered by Ethanol will be televised live on USA Network Sunday, June 16, beginning at 7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
