John Hunter Nemechek will continue a long-standing partnership with one of his closest sponsors as he transitions to the NASCAR Cup Series full time for 2020.
Fire Alarm Services will provide backing for Nemechek’s No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford in four events throughout the NCS season as he competes for rookie of the year in 2020, FRM announced Monday, Feb. 3.
The sponsorship deal extends a relationship that has lasted between the two parties since 2016, when a then-teenaged Nemechek was competing in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.
“I’m thrilled to see FAS come on board with Front Row Motorsports this year,” Nemechek said in a team release. “They have been a key part of my successful climb to the top level of our sport, and I’m so thankful for the relationship that we’ve been able to build. Shannon and Connie Smith have high expectations for their customers and products, and I’m glad that they continue to see us as part of that.”
Last season, Nemechek competed full time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for GMS Racing. The 22-year-old netted six top fives and 19 top 10s in his 2019 NXS campaign. Nemechek also made his Cup debut last fall, driving for FRM. In three Cup starts, Nemechek scored a best finish of 21st at Texas Motor Speedway.
