KFC’s patented Go Cup is designed for maximum portability, fitting in the cup holders of more than 80 percent of cars on the road today. On Sunday, the Go Cup will take portability to an extreme level when it goes “along for the ride” as defending NASCAR Aaron’s 499 champion David Ragan takes to the track.
KFC officially upgraded snacking with the Go Cup, which is a handy (and patented) container that fits in most vehicle cup holders. Perfect for consumers who want both value and portability, the Go Cup includes a choice of the brand’s signature chicken along with Seasoned Potato Wedges for a value price.Defending champion Ragan pointed out one other reason he’s excited about being a part of Team KFC for the Talladega weekend. He wants to “Double Down” on his popular 2013 win at the Aaron’s 499. “I know the KFC Double Down® has been the talk of the country over the past week,” Ragan said. “Our team is focused on a ‘Double Down’ of our own – repeating last year’s win at Talladega – this time with KFC on board.” Where To Spot David Ragan Looking for an autograph and a free snack? Ragan will make an appearance at the KFC restaurant at 75835 Highway 77 in Lincoln, Ala. on Thursday, May 1, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. He will sign autographs, pose for photos and buy KFC Go Cups for the first 100 fans in line. Ragan will also be the focus of FOX Sports’ Pre-Race Ritual segment, where he will talk about the preparations the defending race champion makes to get ready for the Aaron’s 499. That segment will air on FOX prior to the green flag. About KFC: KFC Corporation, based in Louisville, Ky., is the world's most popular chicken restaurant chain.
