Jeremy Clements will have the logo and website of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on his No. 51 Chevrolet for the remainder of the 2012 season. Clements serves as a owner/driver in the NASCAR Nationwide Series.
“JCR is a family team and we proudly support the research and care that St. Jude provides to families all over the world,” said Jennifer Clements Zellner, marketing manager for JCR. “We feel that while we actively search for sponsors, we can use the marketing power of our racing program to help raise awareness and funding for St. Jude.”
The logos and information on Clements car will come at no cost to St. Jude. Clements has run must of the season without any sponsor backing. Despite the limited funding Clements has attempted to run the full race at each of the 22 Nationwide events. Thus far he has two finishes inside the top-ten, most recently at Indianapolis.
“We are incredibly excited to be a part of Jeremy Clements Racing and their efforts to raise awareness for St. Jude,” said JD Peeples, sports marketing director for ALSAC/St. Jude. “NASCAR fans are exactly the type of caring, loyal and giving people that we strive to reach.”
