Jeremy Clements Racing announced on Thursday the launch of “Help Jeremy Clements Achieve Greatness,” an Indiegogo campaign to help support Clements’ efforts in the Nationwide Series.
For Jeremy Clements Racing, underfunded is the norm as they battle to remain competitive against the elite teams in the Nationwide Series. However despite having about 80% less funding than the bigger teams, Clements has enjoyed great success in 2014 by recording two top-10 finishes, highlighted by a sixth-place run at Road America in June. Also, Clements qualified for the Dash4Cash race at New Hampshire by virtue of his eighth-place finish at Daytona. Currently Clements sits 14th in the Nationwide standings heading into this weekend’s race at Indianapolis.
“Small teams like us, without full sponsorship are at a disadvantage against the larger teams.” said Clements. “Fans contact us all the time, asking what they can do to help, This crowd funding campaign will give them the opportunity to support us as a big group and help us to buy engine parts and new sticker tires that will allow us to be more competitive week to week.”
Jeremy Clements Racing is seeking to raise about $50,000 minimum through the Indiegogo campaign which is scheduled to launch on Saturday. Donors perks range from Twitter messages from Clements, pit passes, and advertising opportunities on the No. 51 Chevrolet. Clements is the only driver using the service to fund his racing efforts.
After the Saturday launch, full details of the campaign will be available at https://www.indiegogo.com/.
