Gray Gaulding and the Jimmy Means Racing team will welcome a new sponsor on board their No. 52 Chevrolet Camaro in this weekend’s Alsco Uniforms 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. SVS Vision, a company based in Michigan, will adorn Gaulding’s car.
Gaulding is ecstatic to be working with the optics retailer.
“I cannot be more pumped about partnering with a high-quality optics provider like SVS Vision and showcasing their products and services to the NASCAR community”, Gaulding said in a press release. “The Stanns and Farrells are incredible owners that have built a very successful business based on integrity and care for their customers. Their story is one that inspires me to keep chasing my dream and to be the very best at what I do… race cars!”
For Ken Stann, president of SVS Vision, he and his wife opted to partner with Gaulding as they knew the young racer had something special when they first met.
“Sometimes in life opportunities and relationships are developed in the most unusual circumstances. This was one of them,” Stann said. “Lisa and I knew Gray had the “it” factor the moment we met him. Now that we are here, honestly, I am so fired up to watch Gray race in the SVS Vision car this season. I’m even more excited to broaden our relationship with such a great young man. His personality, love for life, and integrity make this partnership a natural.”
Gaulding is attempting to get his legs under him after a rough three-race start to the 2021 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. He has finished 21st-or-worse in each race this year, but if there was ever a place to go to snap out of it, Las Vegas Motor Speedway would be one of them.
Back in 2019, Gaulding turned in an impressive seventh-place finish at LVMS while driving for SS Green Light Racing.
Gaulding will look to mirror that success this weekend, and help his No. 52 team climb their way up the series standings.
