Mooresville, NC - An off weekend for the NASCAR XFINITY Series? Not for Gase. He will be pulling double duty at Talladega Superspeedway teaming up with StarCom Racing for 1000Bulbs.com 500 in the #00 and Copp Motorsports in the #83 truck for the Fred's 250 powered by Coca-Cola. It will be Gase's fourth race with StarCom Racing this season and second time with the team at Talladega. However, it will be Gase's first ever start in the Truck Series. Gase is bringing along his NXS primary sponsor and Alabama native company, Sparks Energy Inc., on his #00 Chevrolet Camaro and #83 Chevrolet Silverado.
A Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series ride and Camping World Truck Series at the famed Talladega for Gase is always something special; but what he and Sparks Energy Inc are doing makes these rides even more special than most. Sparks Energy will be donating their sponsorship to the Prayers For Kayleigh Foundation for pediatric cancer research at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. The PFK Foundation was founded by the McClendon Family to help raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research after their daughter, Kayleigh, lost her battle to terminal brain cancer, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Gliomas (DIPG) at the tender age of 7.
Sparks Energy is reaching out to the community to help find associate sponsors to come aboard the PFK Foundation #00 and the #83. However, 100% of the sponsorship proceeds will be donated to the PFK Foundation for DIPG research.
If you would like to come on board to support this great cause, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
"We are thrilled to partner with Sparks Energy again at Talladega Superspeedway," said Bill Woehlemann, StarCom Racing CFO. "We are excited to have Joey behind the wheel once again and looking forward to what we can do in the Sparks #00 Chevy."
