On Tuesday, JD Motorsports announced their partnership with Mike’s Weather Page, Firman Power Equipment, OneSource Restoration (OSR), Victory Powerline Services, and Coastal Claims for the NASCAR Xfinity Series season-opener at Daytona International Speedway.
Bayley Currey, who returns to the No. 4 JD Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro for a second full-time season in 2023, will carry the aforementioned five partners prominently in the Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. 300 at the 2.5-mile superspeedway.
“I’m excited to be behind the wheel of the No. 4 Mike’s Weather Page Powered by Firman Power Equipment Chevrolet as we kick off the 2023 season,” said Currey. “I really respect what Mike and his team of partners do to keep us informed about Hurricanes.”
In addition to the organization’s five-way co-primary sponsorship, the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) will have a decal displayed on Currey’s No. 4 Chevrolet Camaro, in an attempt to bring attention to those that have been impacted by hurricanes.
“It’s also just so cool that [Mike] is such a huge NASCAR fan, and it gives me added confidence knowing his 1-million-plus social media followers will be cheering for the No. 4 car as well,” Currey stated.
Mike’s Weather Page, founded by Mike Boylan, a native of Florida, created a weather website to make tracking the tropics easy. Joining social media in 2009, his audience has expanded to a global level, now reaching more than 2 million followers, with his website becoming a ‘one-stop shop for tropics’.
Mike broadcasts live weather shows, called the ‘Daily Brew’ on the tropics, helping to educate people and prepare, and even drives into storms to provide live coverage to his followers. Mike’s Weather Page has been accredited by NOAA, the NWS FEMA, the Hurricane Hunters, National Meteorologists, the Weather Channel, Government officials, and several state county EOCs.
“I am so excited to bring together some great partners involved in the storm industry to build the Hurrican Awareness Machine for Daytona,” said Mike Boylan, founder of Mike’s Weather Page. “Helping inform people about potential storms and being there for them before, during, and after is our collective goal. Growing up in Florida and being a huge NASCAR fan my entire life, this is a wonderful opportunity to be part of!”
Currey will compete in the season-opening Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner. 300 at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, February 18, the first event in a long-winded schedule for the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
