Business With Roots At Lake Of The Ozarks Enters NASCAR Sponsorship

A Local custard shop that got it’s start in the Lake of the Ozarks is now sponsoring a car in NASCAR.

Andy’s frozen custard originally started inside the King’s Plaza in Osage Beach, before moving into the Springfield market, then eventually re-opening a store here at the Lake.

The company, led by owners Andy and Dana Kuntz, is celebrating its 35th anniversary by being named the official custard facility for the Texas Motor Speedway.

They will also be sponsoring racer Austin Dillion’s #3 Cup Race Car in the coming Allstar race and other races throughout NASCAR’s season.
