John Hunter Nemechek Gains Death Wish Coffee Sponsorship

John Hunter Nemechek will have a new sponsor on board his No. 38 Front Row Motorsports Ford when the NASCAR Cup Series travels to Homestead-Miami Speedway this weekend.

Death Wish Coffee Company will sponsor Nemechek in seven races, Front Row Motorsports announced on Thursday (June 11).

Death Wish will sponsor Nemechek in the races at Homestead, Talladega Superspeedway, the Pocono Raceway doubleheader, Watkins Glen International, Michigan International Speedway and Martinsville Speedway.

“At Death Wish Coffee, we fuel passionate people wherever they go,” Mike Brown, CEO of Death Wish, said in a release. “NASCAR has such a passionate fan base, and we’ve really enjoyed our involvement with the sport. We’re excited to continue our partnership with John Hunter Nemechek in his rookie season in the NASCAR Cup Series.”

“Death Wish Coffee has been a great partner over the last few years,” Nemechek said. “You’re always glad to see a company like theirs come on board and stick with you as a driver, moving up through the ranks. Our Front Row Motorsports team has been really fast lately, and hopefully having ‘The World’s Strongest Coffee’ will give us a boost into Victory Lane.”

Death Wish has previously sponsored Nemechek’s efforts in the Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.

In his Cup Series rookie season, Nemechek is 22nd in the championship standings. He has one top-10 finish, a ninth in the 2020 The Real Heroes 400 at Darlington Raceway.

The Cup Series will race at Miami in the 2020 Dixie Vodka 400 on Sunday, June 14, at 3:30 p.m. ET, with TV coverage provided by FOX.
