John Hunter Nemechek has picked up additional sponsorship from Berry’s Bullets for his No. 38 Ford in the Pennzoil 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend in the NASCAR Cup Series, Front Row Motorsports announced Thursday, Feb. 20.
Berry’s has sponsored Nemechek before, serving as his primary sponsor in both NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series competition.
“I’m really looking forward to heading to Las Vegas this weekend with Berry’s Bullets on my No. 38 Ford Mustang,” Nemechek said in a team release. “They’ve been such a great supporter for me in my career and we’ve come really close to winning with them at this track in the past. I’m excited to give it another shot this weekend.
“We’re coming off of a really strong run with an 11th-place finish in the Daytona 500. It’s cool to be the highest-place finisher among the rookie class in my first race as a full-time Cup Series driver. I’m hoping we can carry that momentum over to our mile-and-a-half program with the team at Front Row Motorsports.”
Nemechek is currently in his rookie season in the Cup Series. He finished 11th in the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway. After the season opener, he is 16th in the championship standings.
Nemechek will race at Las Vegas for the first time in his Cup career this weekend. The Pennzoil 400 is scheduled to take place on Sunday, Feb. 23, at 3:30 p.m. ET.
