Noah Gragson has an interesting primary sponsor on his No. 9 JR Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro SS for this weekend’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoff race at Dover International Speedway. The mobile game PUBG will adorn the hood and body of Gragson’s race car.
Gragson made the announcement via a video posted to social media on Thursday.
Check it out! Pumped to have @PUBGMOBILE on this No. 9 Chevrolet this weekend @MonsterMile! This game is awesome and it’s great to have them on our car! Hopefully this No. 9 squad can bring home a nice chicken dinner on Saturday! pic.twitter.com/XUBgvNpBcg

This is what Gragson was referencing on Wednesday in an odd Tweet about having a craving for a chicken dinner.
Gragson, a Las Vegas native, hasn’t won a race in his rookie campaign in the series, but he has 19 top-10 finishes through the first 28 races of 2019 and he sits seventh in the championship standings.
