Golden Corral will be the primary sponsor of the No. 36 Chevrolet for 19 of the 28 remaining NSCS races and associate sponsor for the other nine races. Dave Blaney will pilot the No. 36 Golden Corral Chevrolet beginning this weekend at Richmond International Raceway. Through the remainder of the season, Golden Corral and TBR will run the “Racing for America’s Families” promotion for each race. Each time the No. 36 Golden Corral Chevrolet finishes in the top-10,Golden Corral will offer a one-day “Kids Eat Free” promotion the immediate Monday following the top-10 event. 
In addition to the “Kids Eat Free” promotion, Golden Corral will make a $5,000 donation to the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) on behalf of its operators.
“We are thrilled to team up with TBR and Dave and extend our already successful partnership,” said Ed Gleich, VP of National Marketing for Golden Corral. “This is a great way to reward families and recognize the Disabled Veterans who have honorably served our country.” 
Golden Corral supported TBR in both the Daytona 500 and Aaron’s 499 superspeedway races. Blaney drove the No. 36 Golden Corral Chevrolet to the front in both events, including leading 21 laps at Talladega Superspeedway.
“We are thrilled to have Golden Corral come back and support us for the rest of the season,” explained TBR owner Tommy Baldwin. “Golden Corral is a well-established company, and we are proud they recognized our team’s hard work and performance. We look forward to competing for a top-10 for the ‘Racing for America’s Families’ promotion and will work hard to build successful programs with all of our partners.”

Good to hear this . Blaney is a very good driver who deserves a full time competitive ride . I Watched him and his equaly talented brother Dale muscle the most wicked 410 Winged Sprints around Ohio dirt for years . those boys can wheel anything .

Blaney gets more sponsorship

It is good to see Dave get a sponsor to help with his efforts to move beyond the "Start and Park" runners.  With sponsors not a dime a dozen it is good that Dave will get an "All you can eat" after every race.  This is good to have the lower teams getting good sponsors.

Maybe Robby Gordon can get a real sponsor to suplement his enery drink one.
