LEGACY MOTOR CLUB has picked up sponsorship from AdventHealth for the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season, the organization announced on Tuesday, which will see the network of hospitals support drivers Erik Jones and Jimmie Johnson in a combined nine races.
The company, which has sponsored an entry in the NASCAR Cup Series since 2019, will be prominently displayed on the No. 43 Toyota Camry XSE in six events during the upcoming season, beginning with the season-opening event at Daytona International Speedway.
Additionally, AdventHealth will also adorn the No. 84 Toyota Camry XSE in three NASCAR Cup Series events in 2024, with seven-time champion and co-owner of LEGACY MOTOR CLUB, Jimmie Johnson, behind the wheel at Texas, Charlotte and Kansas.
We whole-heartedly feel that this partnership is one that legacies are made of. Welcome to The Club, @adventhealth!
Tune back in at 7:30 p.m. EST for the full view of the new car ? #TeamToyota

“This is a wonderful day for LEGACY M.C.,” said co-owner Johnson. “AdventHealth believes health should be measured in terms of the whole person — body, mind and spirit. This partnership is a natural fit for our Club and I know we will do great things together. I can’t wait for this season to get started.”
The announcement comes as Jones and LEGACY MOTOR CLUB participate in a NASCAR-sanctioned test session at Phoenix Raceway on Tuesday, December 5, and Wednesday, December 6 — marking the inaugural on-track run for the team since switching from Chevrolet to Toyota.
“We are thrilled to partner with LEGACY MOTOR CLUB and drivers Erik Jones and Jimmie Johnson and are looking forward to a winning 2024 race season,” said Terry Shaw, President and CEO of AdventHealth. “AdventHealth has been in the sport since 2015 and we appreciate the opportunity to provide care for this team and the passionate NASCAR fanbase. Together we can make a tremendous impact in our communities and ensure more people have the opportunity to access whole-person care.”
With more than 50 hospitals in nine states, racetracks like Daytona International Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway, and Atlanta Motor Speedway are all located within an AdventHealth market and near an AdventhHealth facility.
“This is a great partnership for me on the professional and personal level,” said Jones. “Healthcare is one of my key pillars in the Erik Jones Foundation and when I met with the leadership of AdventHealth our values aligned instantly. I hope we can forge a great path together in this new relationship and do many things to positively impact the community both around the tracks and across the US.”
As the Official Healthcare Partner of Daytona International Speedway, AdventHealth cares for more than 6,000 patients each year on-site. In addition, the faith-based not-for-profit healthcare system serves as the Official Health Care Provider for Kansas Speedway and the inaugural Chicago Street Course, which took place in July of this year.
The 2024 NASCAR season kicks off on Feb. 4, 2024, at the L.A. Coliseum with the “Clash” exhibition event, followed two weeks later with 2024 Daytona Speedweeks presented by AdventHealth on Feb. 14 with DAYTONA 500 qualifying.
