Jordan Anderson asks fans for help to build new truck after Atlanta crash

Leave a comment

Jordan Anderson needs the help of NASCAR fans.

Last Saturday, Anderson’s No. 12 Chevrolet was involved in a two-truck crash on Lap 102 of the Camping World Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Anderson’s truck, owned by Rick Ware, was badly damaged after taking a trip through the frontstretch grass and was eliminated from the race.

Now Anderson, 26, is seeking to build another truck to continue with his season. He has relaunched his website sponsorjordan.com in order to raise funds. Anderson used the website during the 2016 season.

On the website, fans can help Anderson out by donating at specific monetary levels and receiving special gifts in exchange.

Similar to the websites Patreon and Kickstarter, the levels range from “Green Flag” ($20) to “Premier” ($5,000).

“Having grown up as a middle-class kid in Columbia, S.C., and wanting to one day become a NASCAR driver, I’ve had to work and fight for every opportunity that has come my way,” Anderson said on the website. “The whole reason I have been able to move from Go-Karts, to Dirt Late Models, to Daytona – has been because of their belief in me and what it is I am trying to do in a sport that I love so much. Your support means the world to this underdog; I’m looking forward to having you join the team.”

NASCAR America: Is there cause for concern with Jimmie Johnson’s performance thus far?

Leave a comment

It’s no secret that Jimmie Johnson is off to a slow start in 2017.

The defending and seven-time NASCAR Cup champion has a starting average of 21.8 and a finishing average of 18.8 in the first five races of this season.

He has just one top-10 finish (ninth at Phoenix), along with 34th at Daytona, 19th at Atlanta, 11th at Las Vegas and 21st Sunday at Fontana.

And let’s not forget he’s 17th in the NASCAR Cup standings heading to one of his strongest tracks, Martinsville Speedway, this Sunday.

On Monday’s edition of NASCAR America, we discussed this: After such a slow start to the season, is there a cause for concern over Johnson’s performance?

Kyle Larson‘s spectacular weekend at Auto Club Speedway — winning both Saturday’s Xfinity Series race and Sunday’s Auto Club 400 NASCAR Cup event — left him feeling good.

But shortly upon exiting the facility, Larson and several others were involved in a fender-bender right outside the Speedway. Larson was a passenger, not the driver.

No one was injured, Larson tweeted.

But somehow, isn’t that strange fate?
