Joe Graf Jr. will have a new multi-race, multi-year sponsorship deal with Bucked Up Energy, the driver and sponsor announced the deal on Friday.
The black and red colors will adorn Graf’s No. 08 SS GreenLight Racing Chevrolet Camaro beginning in Saturday’s Hooter’s 250 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
The 21-year old driver is charged up about his new partnership.
“I’m super pumped to bring Bucked Up Energy as new sponsor to NASCAR. I have been using their workout supplements for a long time and they are awesome. When I learned they were launching an energy drink, I pitched them on NASCAR being the perfect platform for their products,” said Graf in a team press release.
“It’s a new product with a lot of potential and a drink that I feel resonates with the NASCAR fanbase.”
After eight races in 2020, the New Jersey-native sits 22nd in the NASCAR Xfinity Series championship standings and he just scored a career-best 13th-place finish at Bristol two races ago.
Bucked Up Energy shares the same enthusiasm in the partnership as Graf.
“We are super excited to join forces with Joe Graf and also excited about getting our foot in the door with NASCAR,” said Bucked Up Energy CEO Ryan Gardner. “The sport and the fans are incredible and can’t wait to see what happens next.“
