Brad Jones Racing has unveiled a Plus Fitness-backed livery for recruit Todd Hazelwood ahead of the BP Ultimate SuperTest today.
Hazelwood will get his first official hitout in the #14 Holden at The Bend Motorsport Park, before lining up in his hometown round, the Superloop Adelaide 500.
The 24-year-old’s Commodore will feature backing from Plus Fitness, who have supported various teams and drivers in recent seasons, as well as Lionize and South Australian company Bella Build and Design.
Minor signage from Freightliner remains, having been the #14 entry’s primary backer for the previous five seasons.
Having made progress in his second main game season for Matt Stone Racing last year, including qualifying a stunning fourth in Townsville, Hazelwood is keen to begin the next chapter of his career.
“I am very proud to be racing for Brad Jones Racing and our group of extraordinary partners in 2020,” Hazelwood said.
“This is an amazing opportunity for me, and I’d like to thank Brad and Kim [Jones, team owners], our sponsors and the team for believing in my ability and seeing the value in what I can bring to the side.
“This is the next step in my career, and I’ll be giving it everything I have.
“I’m looking forward to the future and what we can all achieve working together. I can’t wait to line up on the grid in Adelaide with the BJR crew.
“The Plus Fitness Racing design looks great and it’s awesome to have their support.”
Plus Fitness co-founder John Fuller was excited to get behind the 2017 Dunlop Super2 Series winner.
“Supercars offer a terrific reach across a diverse audience and Brad Jones Racing is a great team to demonstrate this,” Fuller said.
“We were involved with the team in 2018 and like their attitude towards young drivers. To improve oneself you need to be willing to take a chance, it’s the same philosophy we share with our members.
“The first step to improving is committing to something outside of your comfort zone. We know BJR and Todd Hazelwood will put their best foot forward.”
