– The No. 25 team will utilize GMS chassis No. 018 at ISM Raceway for Tyler Dippel’s third start with GMS Racing. This chassis has been raced once this season, by Timothy Peters, at Martinsville Speedway (start: 9th / finish: 10th).
– Dippel’s Chevrolet will feature Swedish producer Alesso and his latest single “Remedy”. After opening for Madonna on her 2012 MDNA tour, Alesso’s ascension was sped up with the success of 2014’s “Heroes (We Could Be)” featuring Tove Lo. He reached no. 1 on Billboard’s US Dance Club Songs and no. 11 on the Top 40. It was certified Platinum in the US. He has also moved fans at the biggest festivals music has to offer like Coachella, EDC, Ultra, and Tomorrowland. He and Hailee Steinfeld released “Let Me Go” with Florida Georgia Line and Watt; reaching no. 9 on the US Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and cracked the US Billboard Hot 100.
– Also on the #25 Chevy Silverado is 10:22 pm, a new label created by Celine Joshua under Universal Music Group (UMG), the world leader in music-based entertainment. The label is charged with signing and developing recording artists, social media influencers and digital media creators with a focus on creating multimedia content and advancing new forms of storytelling.
Tyler Dippel: “We’re getting better each week, so I’m looking forward to getting out to Phoenix and making my first start at ISM Raceway. Jerry (Baxter, crew chief) and I have spent a lot of time talking about what to expect and I have the benefit of never having raced on the old configuration. Hopefully, that plays into our hands, especially on restarts where the other guys will have to adjust to that change. I really appreciate this No. 25 team sticking behind me and preparing fast trucks each week. I expect it won’t be long before we’re able to come out with a top-10 finish.
“I’m excited to have Alesso and Remedy on our Silverado this week. It’s great when music and racing can come together. To be able to partner with someone who has had so much success is really special.”
Alesso: “Music, very much like sports, brings people together. It’s a universal language and powerful tool in life. Shots Studios has mastered cross-pollination in many aspects, including sports, and is always open to exploring unique opportunities.
“It’s always been my passion to create music that reaches and connects with everyone all over the world. Being from Stockholm, racing has always been big in Europe and it’s neat to be able to experience NASCAR here in the US and support young athletes chasing their dream. We wish Tyler all the luck and hope he continues to have the Remedy for long-term success in his career.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
