NEMCO Motorsports announced Tuesday that FoneFuel LLC will become the primary sponsor for the No. 8 Chevrolet in the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 at Charlotte Motor Speedway Friday night.
FoneFuel will also be featured as an associate sponsor for the rest of the year on the truck. The brand new company was founded just last year and will be making its NASCAR sponsor debut.
“The partnership is the start of a long-term relationship that benefits both FoneFuel LLC and NEMCO Motorsports,” Derrick Smith, co-founder of FoneFuel said in a press release announcing the move. “In the future, we hope the partnership translates to the NASCAR fan base and an expansion for FoneFuel to provide job opportunities to Spartanburg.”
The FoneFuel logo will be featured on the hood of the No. 8 truck this weekend.
The truck is shared throughout the year between Joe Nemechek and John Hunter Nemechek. Sprint Cup veteran Ryan Newman piloted the ride last Friday night at Kansas Speedway to help the team gain more information and feedback.
“The way this has come together is very exciting for us,” Nemechek, driver and co-owner of NEMCO Motorsports, said in a release. “Our NASCAR fan base sits for long hours having battery power drained from their mobile devices without an easily accessible way to charge their phones. Now, fans can use products like the FoneFuel Green, a solar-powered portable charger, to recharge their mobile devices while cheering on their favorite drivers from the grandstands. This also aligns with NASCAR’s Race to Green initiative. We’re happy to have them on board and look forward to going to work for their FoneFuel brand.”
Investing in education is the company’s primary goal. 10% of their sales go toward numerous education funds that are distributed throughout the United States and worldwide.
