BK Racing announced today that E.J. Wade Construction will be on board the No. 83 Toyota Camry of Corey LaJoie for both 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races at Richmond International Raceway. The E.J. Wade Foundation continues to serve as an associate sponsor on board all BK Racing Toyotas for the entire 2017 season.
E.J. Wade Construction made their debut in NASCAR on board the BK Racing No. 83 last April at Richmond International Raceway. E.J. Wade returned to sponsor eight BK Racing cars throughout the 2016 season.
E.J. Wade Construction is a Class A Contractor and a VDOT Prequalified Contractor that has highly trained professionals who have their tradesman licenses in electrical, plumbing, HVAC and gas fitting tradesman licenses.
In 2013, founders Jeff and Janet Wade created E.J. Wade Foundation, a public 501(c)(3) non-profit as a merger of their three, previously established 501(c)(3) organizations. The three primary focuses of the E.J. Wade Foundation are Rheumatoid Arthritis Patient Assistance, aid for the people of Niger, Africa, and Disaster Preparedness & Relief. Each pillar of philanthropy represents a deep, personal meaning for the Wade family. E.J. Wade Foundation will continue to encompass all three tenants of the elder foundations while adding community partnerships as a fourth focus.
“I have had a great experience working with the entire BK Racing organization in 2016, so I’m very excited to see the relationship expand in 2017,” said Jeff Wade, President of E.J. Wade Construction. “Everyone on the team has been amazing to me and my family, and Corey will do a great job representing my company and our foundation.”
“E.J. Wade has been with us since last year, so it’s great to see them sponsor our No. 83 at both Richmond races” says Doug Fritz, BK Racing CMO. “To be able to host the Wade family and to help them garner the value from their sponsorship is really something special.”
