Sponsorship dubs November 3rd race The JAG Metals 359 Driving Hurricane Harvey Relief
Jag Metals has been named title sponsor of November’s Nascar Camping World Truck Series Playoff Race at Texas Motor Speedway taking place Friday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m., according to a news release.
The Weatherford-based company, specializing in metal buildings and roofing materials, has reached an agreement for the title sponsorship of the Nov. 3 race that will have an emphasis on helping those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
The new partnership will begin with a $5,000 donation to Speedway Children’s Charities-Texas to benefit the hurricane relief efforts in south Texas, the release says. JAG Metals also is working with the speedway to organize drop-off destinations for non-perishable items that will be located at the main gates as well as the infield for fans attending the JAG Metals 350 Driving Hurricane Harvey Relief race day.
“We welcome JAG Metals to our family of sponsors, particularly because they are wanting to support folks in Texas who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” Texas Motor Speedway President Eddie Gossage said. “We know many are hurting there and struggling, so any time one of our sponsors wants to develop a support program we know they are good people. There is so much to address in south Texas and now people in Florida are struggling, too. Sponsors like JAG Metals are trying to ease the load, so those are the kinds of companies we like to represent to race fans.”
JAG Metals, located west of Fort Worth and less than 50 miles southwest of the speedway, is looking for the motorsports partnership to help build and expand their brand in the local marketplace with business to business opportunities, according to the release. The NASCAR fan demographics also align with the company’s target audience for their various products.
“JAG Metals is a young gun company itself, so it was a great fit to support the young guns in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series who will become the sport’s next stars,” JAG Metals LLC co-owner Justin Bradley said. “While in discussions on this entitlement with Texas Motor Speedway, (co-owner) Blake Bailey and I also wanted to use this platform to help continue to bring awareness and aid to the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. It’s Texans helping Texans and we’re proud to lend a hand.”
Tickets start at $25 for adults and the race is free for children 12 and under. Ticket information can be found at the Texas Motor Speedway website.
