ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. — For the first time in company history, State Water Heaters crossed the finish line as a winner in NASCAR competition.

State Water Heaters, an associate sponsor, saw its driver, Ryan Newman, win the Brickyard 400, a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

Newman’s No. 39 Chevrolet SS took the checkered flag at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 28.

“State Water Heaters is thrilled to congratulate Ryan Newman on the victory at the Brickyard,” said Jeff Storie, State Water Heaters’ senior marketing manager. “Being part of a winning team is an exciting way to get people to notice and celebrate the State brand.” Newman kicked off the weekend by setting the track record during qualifying on Saturday, completing the 2.5-mile loop in just 47.992 seconds at an average of 187.531 mph. On Sunday, Newman led the pack four times for 48 laps, ultimately securing his first win of the season and his first win at Indianapolis.

The Brickyard win marks Newman’s 17th career Sprint Cup victory. This is Newman’s first victory since April 2012 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. Newman will return to Martinsville in October in the No. 39 State Water Heaters racecar.
