Joe Graf Jr. will have a new sponsor on board his No. 08 this weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
Bucked Up Energy and Graf have agreed to a multi-year sponsorship deal, both sides announced today, June 12.
“We are super excited to join forces with Joe Graf and also excited about getting our foot in the door with NASCAR,” Bucked Up Energy CEO Ryan Gardner said in a release. “The sport and the fans are incredible and [we] can’t wait to see what happens next.”
Added Graf: “I’m super pumped to bring Bucked Up Energy as new sponsor to NASCAR. I have been using their workout supplements for a long time and they are awesome. When I learned they were launching an energy drink, I pitched them on NASCAR being the perfect platform for their products.”
Graf drives the No. 08 full time in Xfinity for SS-Greenlight Racing, his first full schedule in the series. Entering Homestead, he is 22nd in points with a best finish of 13th at Bristol Motor Speedway.
A specific schedule for the sponsorship outside of Saturday’s (June 13) race at Homestead was not disclosed.
