Saturday’s race marks a milestone for the Nationwide Series teams who are competing for the first time at the famous Brickyard 400 and their fans. For the past 30 years the NASCAR’s Nationwide Series ran at the Lucas Oil Raceway. The famous Motor Speedway was reserved exclusively for the Sprint Cup. Saturday’s race at the Brickyard will be the inaugural event for the Nationwide Series in Indianapolis, a town synonymous with racing. JD Motorsports with Gary Keller will have the #01 car and the #4 car competing.
Tradebank will be sponsoring both cars in the 250 mile race. Tradebank is an associate sponsor of the #01 car driven by racing veteran Mike Wallace. Jeremy Clements is driving the #4 car, the Tradebank Chevrolet. “Both Wallace and Clements will be competing in cars which have been built to be able to trade paint with the top finishers in the Nationwide Series. We look for a strong performance that allows both drivers to show off their racing skills in a car that is built for superior performance,” says Tony Priscaro of JD Motorsports.
“Tradebank has a strong presence in the Indianapolis market and having the Tradebank cars racing here gives us a great opportunity to showcase our barter services and the local trading partners,” says Lavonda Henry, Tradebank of Indianapolis Regional Owner.
