Market leader in power generation equipment to be primary sponsor for Grant Enfinger in select races during the 2016 season.
Statesville N.C. (February 5, 2016) – Champion Power Equipment (Champion) will expand their partnership with GMS Racing in 2016, as the primary sponsor of driver Grant Enfinger for select NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) events. Champion, a leading supplier of durable engine products, will kick off the season with Enfinger at the historic Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway later this month.
“Having Champion renew their partnership for 2016 is a testament towards Grant (Enfinger) and GMS Racing as a whole,” said Nic Moncher, Team Manager for GMS Racing. “We appreciate the support Champion has given us over the past two years, and look forward to continuing our growth together. I look forward to seeing Enfinger kick off the season in his No. 33 Champion Power Equipment Chevrolet at Daytona.”
Champion has been a longstanding partner with the Statesville, N.C.-based team since the beginning of 2014. The 2015 season marked Champion’s first primary sponsorship in the motorsports realm, seeing their notable yellow design adorn Enfinger’s car while competing in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards season finale at Kansas Speedway.
“Champion is tremendously excited to be partnering with GMS Racing and driver Grant Enfinger,” said Dennis Trine, Champion Chief Executive Officer. “We believe Grant is a strong fit for our organization and will continue to represent the logo well in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. It’s fitting that Champion was behind Grant as he became a champion, and now we stand behind him as he takes the next step in his career.”
Champion is a market leader in power generation equipment for work, recreation or home use. Champion has years of experience providing dependable and durable power products designed and engineered in the United States for the North American and world markets.
“I am excited to have Champion Power Equipment on board the No. 33 Chevrolet,” said 31-year-old Grant Enfinger. ”Champion has been a great partner to work with over the past two years. Without their durable products each week we would be at a loss at the track and at the shop. I am hoping to bring Champion a new level of success in the (NCWTS) Truck Series.”
The No. 33 Champion Power Equipment Chevrolet Silverado will take to the track at Daytona International Speedway for the first time this season with live coverage on Fox Sports 1 and MRN Radio Friday, February 19 at 7:30 PM EST.
