Many time when a person thinks of NASCAR and their sponsors they think of Home Depot, Lowe’s, Budweiser or any other national company. In team ownership, the powerhouses include names like Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing.


However, there is a company in Pampa who is a part of a race team who races in the Camping World Truck Series of NASCAR.


SWM International Inc., based in Pampa, is a company who is a premier manufacturing facility that specializes in custom design and development of the highest quality oil field completion tools including the best oil well perforating guns in the industry today. It is owned by Sid and Dawna Mauldin, who now also co-own SWM-NEMCO Motorsports alongside veteran NASCAR Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series driver, Joe Nemechek.


“He is a great guy,” Dawna said. “He is honest, easy to work with and is dedicated to Sid.”


SWM-NEMCO only raced in two events in the 2013 season, but have come on board to race in all 22 Camping World Truck Series races in 2014. Dawna said that Joe manages the race team while they put the money into the team.

NASCAR and Mother’s Day

NASCAR and Mother’s Day: As mom and grandmother, Martha Nemechek has memories of success and tragedy

The family-owned NEMCO Motorsports shop in Mooresville, N.C., is a treasure trove of NASCAR.


Martha Nemechek, matriarch of the racing family, has one of every racing suit her son Joe wore as a driver. His helmets, his gloves, his shoes. Hundreds of trophies, photographs, a wall of bookcases filled with scrapbooks. Scale models of every car Joe ever raced (and a dirt bike) are on display. And, parked in a warehouse is one car from every sponsor Nemechek has represented in a 25-year NASCAR career.


“Dale Earnhardt would come to our motor home to eat and come out to the shop and say to Joe, ‘I don’t have as much stuff as you’ve got. You are very lucky,’ ” Martha said.


For Martha Nemechek, that’s the world of a NASCAR mom. Collecting, saving and preserving memories is only one part of the job for these ladies, who like moms around the world are honored Sunday on Mother’s Day.


“My mom has been right there involved in everything I’ve ever done, from racing motorcycles to Cup racing, to sports back in school,” said Nemechek, the 1992 Nationwide Series champion who won both the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races at Kansas Speedway in 2004.

NASCAR veteran Joe Nemechek, a multiple winner in the Sprint Cup and Nationwide Series, figures he still has a lot of racing left in him.


But these days the 50-year-old Nemechek, who made his Sprint Cup debut in 1993, is also focused on helping his 16-year-old son, John Hunter, get ready to follow in his footsteps.


Joe and John Hunter are splitting duties in the No. 8 SWM-NEMCO Motorsports Toyota Tundra this season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, with John Hunter racing in 10 truck events and Joe racing in the other 12.

Joe Nemechek Fueled by Herbal Mist Tea Sponsorship

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."
