Will Participate in ARCA Test at Daytona
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (December 12, 2011) – Alli Owens is back. The new mother will return behind the wheel of Andy Belmont’s No. 1 BABY JOCK-sponsored car for ARCA Series testing at Daytona International Speedway December 16-18. The session will mark Owens’ first time on a race track since February 2011.
Owens decided to take the 2011 season off to get married and start a family. In October she gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Braelynn and is anxious to get back in the seat of a competitive race car for 2012.
“I can’t put into words how great it feels to know that I’ll be testing at Daytona,” Owens said. “I’ve been so anxious to return to the track. Now that I’m settled in with being a wife and mother, it’s time for me to go racing again. I’m so excited to be a mom and get back in the driver’s seat.
“While I was away, I did everything I possibly could to prepare for my return. I’ve been exercising and working on my fitness so that I’ll be at the top of my game. I’ve been calling on companies and organizations to secure a sponsorship. Hopefully it will all come together.”
Owens’ plans beyond Daytona are not complete. She is still seeking sponsorship support in hopes of running the 2012 season in one of racing’s top national touring series. Owens anticipates that motherhood will be appealing to potential sponsors and that it will open new doors to the sport.
“I know there are a lot of companies out there that have wanted to get involved in racing, but didn’t have the right fit for a driver. Now they have the right outlet,” Owens said. “There are so many companies that are relevant to women, especially mothers, that would be perfect for the sport. This is a great opportunity for them to share their brand with a whole new audience.”
One corporation, M4M Ventures has aligned with Owens for Daytona with their brand BABY JOCK. BABY JOCK is a brand new company that will soon debut a line of products. Product lines will include everything from diapers, formula, baby food, and gear. BABY JOCK will be the all-encompassing branding statement of healthy active babies and kids. BABY JOCK is starting the movement to end childhood obesity. This is the launching pad for the BABY JOCK brand as they seek corporate partnership. Team BABY JOCK will bring families back to the grandstands of NASCAR.
“As a new mother, I’m so proud to carry the BABY JOCK sponsorship at Daytona,” Owens said. “Obviously I want my daughter to grow up to be active and healthy, so I’m thrilled to align with a company that has similar ideals.”
Parent company M4M Ventures Corp. is launching another company, Going Fit, with the sponsorship of Owens and the race team. Going Fit provides the average consumer with motivational products and services; putting the power of change in their hands with product lines that promote a healthy and active way of life.
Owens has three partial seasons of ARCA competition under her belt, having driven for Mario Gosselin in 2008, D’Hondt Motorsports in 2009, and Venturini Motorsports in 2010. In 2009 Owens captured the outside pole at Daytona International Speedway for the Lucas Oil Slick Mist 200.
