BRANDT, a leading agriculture retailer and manufacturer of agricultural specialty products, will celebrate the future of agriculture with two industry leaders, FFA and 4-H, at Chicagoland Speedway. BRANDT has been a long-time supporter of both organizations and recognizes the positive influence they have in personal and professional development of young people into future leaders. The BRANDT No. 7, driven by Justin Allgaier, will run a special paint scheme at Chicagoland Speedway focusing on the two organizations and celebrating the role they each play.

BRANDT has been a supporter of each organization through scholarships, project funding, volunteered time and gifts through the BRANDT Foundation.

“I’m proud to see both the FFA and 4-H emblems on the car. They represent the future of our industry and that’s reason to celebrate it,” said Rick Brandt, President & CEO of BRANDT. “I’m always impressed by the professionalism and work ethic of these young kids. The resources and leadership provided by these two organizations play a key role in that positive development.”

BRANDT has fielded the all Ag Car for seven consecutive seasons in NASCAR.

“These are two great organizations that I’ve had the pleasure of being involved with over the years through my partnership with BRANDT,” said Justin Allgaier. “I’ve seen firsthand some of the incredible things these kids accomplish through the programs and resources that FFA and 4-H provide. Agriculture definitely has a bright future.”

Headquartered in Springfield, Ill., BRANDT has been part of NASCAR since 2011, building awareness for the world’s most vital industry. Joining BRANDT on the car are The Nutrients for Life Foundation, Precision Tank, TradeMark Nitrogen, ResponsibleAg, Monterey Lawn and Garden, Grigg Brothers and BRANDT iHammer.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Chicagoland Speedway is Saturday, September 16th at 2:30pm CT and will be aired on NBCSN.
