Viva Motorsports announces its partnership with NASCAR veteran team owner Frank Cicci. Viva Motorsports, which fields the #55 Chevy Camaro in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, is pleased to announce the addition of legendary racer, Frank Cicci, to the team. The team will now operate under the name “Viva Motorsports with Frank Cicci.”
Cicci brings over 25 years of experience at the helm of winning NASCAR race teams. A force in the Nationwide Series, Frank Cicci racked up 752 starts and 19 victories during his tenure as a car owner and had a hand in beginning the careers of many drivers such as Jimmy Spencer and Todd Bodine.
Cicci also introduced high profile sponsorships in which many are still involved in the sport. He will use his expertise to help guide Viva into the future by focusing on securing a long term sponsor. “We are thrilled to have someone with the name recognition of Frank Cicci to come on board. This only makes our team stronger going forward,” said Jamie Dick, Partner and Team Manager of Viva Motorsports. Cicci commented on his involvement, “I have been waiting for the right opportunity and Viva Motorsports has it all. My marketing team will get the team sponsored so that we can build a competitive organization.”
For the remaining 2013 season, Viva Motorsports with Frank Cicci will operate out of its China Grove headquarters and continue a partial schedule in the Nationwide Series with support from Viva Auto Group. The team looks forward to securing sponsorship that will enable them to run a full schedule in 2014.
