A Week in Chicogoland PDF Print E-mail

It was certainly a busy week in the windy city last week!

 

Thanks to a newly-formed partnership with Jewel-Osco, we were able to proudly wear the Jewel-Osco logo on the track, and got to spend time with their employees and our fans in various stores in Chicagoland.

 

It was a whirlwind tour, but I got to talk to fans and sign some very cool souvenirs, all with the hospitality of Jewel-Osco and their great employees.

 

The Camping World Truck Series race was also a whirlwind. We had a little trouble early on that put us mid pack, and the truck just didn't do as well in the dirty air back there. So we took a chance with a 2 tire stop to regain track position and came out 2nd. Some trucks with 4 new tires were able to get around us, but it gave us the position improvement we needed. I was able to finish 9th for an all-around good day.

 

We couldn't do this without our sponsors and without our fans. We appreciate all, and we really appreciate when fans support our sponsors!

John Hunter Nemechek Learning from Joe

Following in the footsteps of your father is not an easy task.

 

It's especially hard when your father happens to be a professional race car driver. It's even harder when the father is a driver who many fans know and fondly remember his success.

 

The most famous example of this in NASCAR is Dale Earnhardt Jr., whose father will forever be remembered as one of he greatest stock car drivers to ever put rubber to road.

 

These days, the sons of former NASCAR drivers Bill Elliott (Chase) and Dave Blaney (Ryan) are also drafting in their more famous fathers' wake.

 

All of these drivers no doubt picked up tips and instincts from their fathers. The same goes for John Hunter Nemechek.

 

Nemechek is the 17-year-old son of Lakeland native Joe Nemechek, who has been racing stock cars since 1989.

 

Both father and son compete in the Camping World Truck Series as the younger Nemechek seeks to move up the ranks to the Nationwide Series and one day eventually make his NASCAR Sprint Cup series debut.

 

To get there, John Hunter has been soaking up as much knowledge as he can from his dad.

Nemechek And Team Are Making A Small Comeback

Source: Racin' Today

The story of SWM-NEMCO Motorsports goes well beyond Joe Nemechek’s third-place NASCAR Camping World Truck Series finish at Texas Motor Speedway last weekend.

 

But for a fledgling organization featuring “Front Row Joe,” teen-aged son John Hunter and a team-owner living-in-the-moment, that’s the perfect place to start.

 

“It’s really good to be back in the Media Center. It’s been a long time since I’ve been here,” a beaming Nemechek said after finishing behind winner Matt Crafton and runnerup Justin Lofton in last Friday night’s 18th annual WinStar World Casino & Resort 400. “This is really neat. You look at what our team is. I think we have seven or eight guys total on our whole team. We’re building everything and it’s a lot of work at the shop. We’ve built seven trucks so far this year and just trying to get performing better. The people that are really responsible are Sid and Dawna Mauldin from SWM.”

 

The Mauldins are proud residents of Pampa, the Texas Panhandle home to SWM International, Inc., a manufacturing facility specializing in the design and development of oil field completion tools including oil well perforating guns.

TWO GENERATIONS OF NEMECHEKS FORM THE DYNAMIC DUO WITH SWM-NEMCO RACING FOR THE 2014 NASCAR CAMPING WORLD TRUCK SEASON

 

Father and Son Nemecheks Announce a Full Truck Season For SWM-NEMCO Racing

 

For Immediate Release - Mooresville NC – SWM-NEMCO Motorsports today announced unprecedented plans for father and son Joe and John Hunter Nemechek to share a tag-team single season of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for 2014.

 

This move allows the #8 truck, owned by SWM-NEMCO Racing, to run the whole season with John Hunter racing the 10 races at all the tracks that NASCAR allows at his age of 16. His dad, Joe will be mounting a campaign at racing the other 12.  John Hunter will be running a combo of short track and one mile ovals, coupled with a road course and a dirt track. “Front Row Joe” will be taking the balance of the season at the larger tracks and super speedways. In the elite club of a few drivers with more than 1000 starts, only seven of those starts have been in a truck, with a best finish of 2nd place for the senior Nemechek.

 

Sponsorship partners are in process for supporting the Father-Son #8 NASCAR Camping World Truck entry along with primary principle supporter Pelletgrillusa.com.

Joe Nemechek Fueled by Herbal Mist Tea Sponsorship PDF Print E-mail

Here is an article that covers the Herbal Mist Tea sponsorship, talking about how the sponsorship started and the background on my own flavor of unsweetened tea.

 

"For a small team like the one owned by veteran NASCAR driver Joe Nemechek, sponsorship literally keeps his race car on the track. So for this season Nemechek’s No. 87 Nationwide and Cup cars are being fueled by a new relationship with, of all things, a tea company."
