YellowCover Joins Forces with MSR for 2020 Season
Transport and logistics specialist NTI have joined Matt Stone Racing as naming rights partner with their YellowCover brand aboard the teams lead 35 car driven by Garry Jacobson for the 2020 Supercars season.
YellowCover specialises in mobile plant and equipment insurance Australia wide. They join industry leaders Kubota and Genie (A Terex Brand) in support of the rise and expansion of Matt Stone Racing as the team makes the step up to a two car operation this year.
The Matt Stone Racing team have been working around the clock over the holiday season expanding every aspect of the team. As the engineering and commercial departments step up, the MSR Factory has seen the construction of new offices alongside the investment into new cars and a long list of equipment including; the impressive new iSeek Data Station and D2N Communication Centre.
In no small part and due to the expertise and support of Brisbane based SS Signs, the team's presentation is also taking a big step up this year.
"SS Signs joined MSR in late 2019 as the team's new signage and presentation partner and have supported us 100% in our goal to build MSR into a top tier team. Without SS Signs and all our new and longstanding team partners there's no way we could have expanded to two cars for this year. We have some very clear goals for the future and it's great to have team partners that also support our goals for this year and the future." Matt Stone
With MSR driver Garry Jacobson coming from his family transport company in regional Victoria and team partners Kubota and YellowCover specialising in agricultural machinery and heavy equipment, this combination is undoubtedly a perfect fit.
