Putinka Vodka to Battle on the Side of Bryan Ortiz in K&N Pro Series Exhibition at Daytona


Feb 18, 2013

CORNELIUS, N.C. (Feb. 18, 2013) – Putinka Vodka will sponsor the No. 4 Rev Racing Toyota Camry of Bryan Ortiz in his attempt to win the inaugural UNOH Battle at the Beach at Daytona International Speedway, an all-star event consisting of the top drivers in NASCAR’s K&N Pro Series East and West divisions broadcast live on SPEED on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 8:30 pm EST.

Tomorrow night’s race marks the second time that Putinka Vodka will support Ortiz’s NASCAR effort. The Puerto Rican driver, who finished fifth in last year’s K&N East point standings, piloted a Putinka-sponsored entry in last fall’s K&N West season finale at Phoenix International Raceway to an eighth-place finish.

“Putinka has been an amazing partner and I cannot thank them enough for coming onboard for the Battle,” said Ortiz. “I’m thrilled that Mr. Ramon Abad and everyone at Russian Roulette (parent company of Putinka Vodka) enjoyed their experience with us at Phoenix and I hope to give them a strong finish on Tuesday.”

Abad, President of Russian Roulette Puerto Rico, is similarly optimistic about Putinka’s continued relationship with Ortiz.

“I am proud to be associated with such a great up-and-coming driver like Bryan,” said Abad. “Phoenix was a great experience for us and we couldn’t ask for a better ambassador of the Putinka brand than him.”

Though Tuesday night will be Ortiz’s first oval race at the World Center of Racing, it will serve as his second DIS appearance in 2013; he and teammate Roly Falgueras finished 14th in the Grand-Am Continental Tire Series race in January.
