PLAYERS: Josh Wise
STATESVILLE, N.C. – NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team Front Row Motorsports and Carson-Newman University (C-N) have forged a one-race partnership featuring the University on Front Row’s No. 35 Ford Fusion. The Carson-Newman car will be driven by Josh Wise during the IRWIN Tools Night Race at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway on Aug. 24. “We are very excited about this unique opportunity that specific University donors and Front Row Motorsports have afforded us,” said Carson-Newman President Randall O’Brien. O’Brien says he is impressed with both the integrity and humbleness in which Front Row owner and Dandridge, Tenn., resident Bob Jenkins operates his team. “To be able to partner with Mr. Jenkins and his organization in showcasing Christian higher education on a national stage – well, it just doesn’t get much better than that,” O’Brien said. “One of the most gratifying parts of running a Sprint Cup team is bringing new partners into the sport,” said Jenkins. “And when it’s an organization as respected as Carson-Newman, it’s even better. Throw in that it’s one of the biggest races of the year and that’s going to make it a pretty special weekend.” The Front Row car will also highlight several area C-N supporters including Knoxville’s Ted Russell Automotive Group and Premier Building Maintenance Corporation, as well as Oak Ridge’s Denton Financial Group. Planning is also under way for a Carson-Newman/Front Row VIP event that will take place on C-N’s Jefferson City campus during the week leading up to the race. Proceeds from the event will go to the local Boys & Girls Clubs of Dumplin Valley. Details will be announced at a later date. The IRWIN Tools Night Race will air live in primetime on ABC. -Breaking Limits PR
