STATESVILLE, N.C. – Jacob Companies will be the primary sponsor on Ben Kennedy’s No. 96 Chevrolet Camaro this weekend during the NASCAR XFINITY Series Hisense 4k TV 300 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Kennedy has made three previous starts at the 1.5-mile track in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, but this will be his first XFINITY Series start there under the GMS Racing banner.
“I am looking forward to representing Jacob Companies at Charlotte (Motor Speedway) this weekend,” said Kennedy. “Jacob Companies has been a long time supporter of mine, so having them as a primary on the GMS Racing No. 96 Chevrolet Camaro is really special to me. Hopefully, we can put on a strong showing for Jacob Companies and the fans.”
Jacob Companies sponsored Kennedy numerous times in his 2016 Truck Series campaign with GMS Racing, including his first Truck Series win at Bristol Motor Speedway in August.
“We are really excited to welcome Jacob Companies back with Ben,” said Mike Beam, GMS Racing competition director. “Jacob Companies is a great company to partner with. This will be the team’s first time fielding two XFINITY cars at an event so it’s going to be a big race for this organization, and to have Jacob Companies and Ben to be a part of it is really great.”
