Axalta Racing and Jeff Gordon teamed up to sponsor Jason Johnson Racing for the 59th Annual NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals.
“This brings tears to my eyes as it was always our dream to partner and proudly represent a large organization at JJR since we began our team back in 2010,” JJR owner Bobbi Johnson said. “We (Bobbi and her late husband Jason) never wanted to be given anything, but wanted to work hard for it and produce results on and off the track to earn it. We are very grateful for this opportunity with Axalta and Jeff Gordon and are going to work extremely hard to make them proud at the Knoxville Nationals. We have so many dedicated and loyal sponsorship partners that have believed in us and supported our dream through good times and tough times, and it is so cool to bring Axalta on board for the Knoxville Nationals.”
The partnership is extra special for David Gravel, driver of the JJR #41, as he has been a fan of Jeff Gordon since he was a kid.
“To say I am excited is an understatement,” Gravel said. “I am honored and proud to have Axalta Racing and Jeff Gordon join us for the Knoxville Nationals. The car is going to look great under the lights at Knoxville with our Axalta paint. I can’t wait to make them proud on the track!”
