JR Motorsports announced a new sponsor for driver Tyler Reddick beginning this weekend in the Xfinity Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
Reddick, who won the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway, will be sponsored by Nationwide Children’s Hospital for five races this season.
The hospital, located in Columbus, Ohio, is one of America’s largest pediatric healthcare and research centers delivering care for more than 1.4 million patients each year.
Nationwide is a long-time supporter of owner Dale Earnhardt Jr.
The branding space on Reddick’s No. 9 Chevrolet on Saturday was made possible through the support of one of JRM’s partners, which made a donation to Nationwide Children’s in memory of one of its founders, Carolyn Brown.
“Our relationship and commitment to Nationwide Children’s Hospital goes much deeper than this partnership,” said Kelley Earnhardt Miller, general manager of JR Motorsports, in a press release. “The work they do is invaluable, and we are honored to partner alongside them and be continued advocates of their mission. Theirs is a cause that all of us at JR Motorsports, and our partners, are firmly supportive of.”
Reddick, a two-time winner in the Xfinity Series, is in his first year with JR Motorsports.
“I know how important Nationwide Children’s Hospital is to Dale and Amy (Earnhardt), Kelley and everyone at JR Motorsports,” said Reddick in a press release. “I’m proud to be supporting their cause and it’s been eye-opening to learn about the tremendous work they do for children and their families across the country. I’m looking forward to visiting the hospital and meeting their Patient Champions.”
Saturday’s Rinnai 250 begins at 2 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
