One of the world’s most well-known orange drink brands, SUNNYD will kick off Berry’s Cup Series rookie-of-the-year campaign by sponsoring him in the non-points Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum Feb. 4 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
SUNNYD will also serve as Berry’s primary partner for The Great American Race, the 66th annual Daytona 500 on Feb. 18 at Daytona (Fla.) Int’l Speedway.
Following those two races, SUNNYD will return to the No. 4 Ford Mustang as the primary sponsor for multiple races later in the Cup Series season. When not the primary sponsor, SUNNYD will have a yearlong associate presence on the No. 4 Ford Mustang, with additional branding on Berry’s firesuit.
“The 2024 season marks SUNNYD’s ninth consecutive year as a primary sponsor in the NASCAR Cup Series and we’re excited to align with Josh Berry and Stewart-Haas Racing right out of the gate with the Clash and Daytona 500,” said Henk Hartong, Chairman, SUNNYD. “We’re grateful to our fans and customers for their loyal support of SUNNYD and what can be considered the best paint scheme on the track.
“We look forward to our ongoing partnership with Stewart-Haas and the No. 4 car and splashing SUNNYD on Josh in victory lane.”
Berry comes to Stewart-Haas from the NASCAR Xfinity Series, where he was a five-time race winner.
The 33-year-old racer from Hendersonville, Tenn., earned his spot in the Xfinity Series by dominating late model racing across a variety of grassroots series, winning the 2017 CARS Late Model Stock Tour championship and then the 2020 NASCAR Weekly Racing Series championship.
“It’s a privilege to drive the No. 4 Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas and to represent an existing partner in SUNNYD, which brings an added sense of pride,” Berry said. “It’s an excellent opportunity and I’m incredibly grateful for it.”
In just 95 career Xfinity Series starts, Berry finished among the top-10 in more than half his races. Those exploits made him the go-to solution for Cup Series teams in need of an interim driver.
Berry made 12 Cup Series starts spread across three different teams, with his best effort being a strong second-place drive last April at Richmond (Va.) Raceway, while subbing for the injured Chase Elliott.
“It’s been very meaningful to get some opportunities in the Cup Series,” Berry said. “I’m proud of how they went, but I’m proud to drive a Cup car that’s got my name on it.”
