Rally and rallycross driver, and co-founder of DC Shoes, Ken Block officially partners with cbdMD.


CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- cbdMD, a Level Brands company (NYSE American: LEVB), has officially announced its partnership with Ken Block, a professional rally and rallycross driver with the Hoonigan Racing division and Loenbro Motorsports.

During his nearly 15-year rally and rallycross career, Block has achieved many notable victories, including winning the Rally America Rookie of the Year award (2005), garnering an impressive 19 podiums and 8 overall victories in Rally events in a single year (2007), and achieving first place at the Rally New York USA competition (2008). On February 27, 2010, Block won the 100 Acre Wood Rally for the fifth consecutive time, thereby breaking the record held by driver John Buffum. Since then, Block has gone on to earn a total of 7 wins in 9 attempts at the popular Missouri-based event.

Most recently, Block raced his Ford Escort Cosworth ("The Cossie") in the 100 Acre Wood Rally held March 15-16, 2019. This event kicked off the start of the Cossie World Tour, a global racing challenge that will include stops in Ireland, New Zealand, San Marino, and England.

"We're thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Ken and continue our support within the racing community and motorsports vertical," said Caryn Dunayer, cbdMD President. "Can't wait to see him team up with fellow cbdMD athlete, Steve Arpin, and maybe a few other unexpected athletes throughout the year."

cbdMD is honored to support Block in the upcoming 2019 racing season, and as he continues to train naturally and compete supernaturally for years to come.
