MOORESVILLE, N.C.

"We can't think of a better partnership," said Guy Trotter of Surface Sunscreen. "We are committed to providing high-quality suncare products for fans and participants who spend their days outside at the track. Aligning with Matt helps us carry our message to a broader NASCAR-focused audience."
Tifft makes his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut in 2019 with Front Row Motorsports this Sunday in the Daytona 500. Previously, he competed in the NASCAR Xfinity Series where he earned nine top-five finishes, 38 top-10 finishes and two poles.
