MOORESVILLE, NC – Former NASCAR driver and current FOX Sports commentator Hermie Sadler added a new, unexpected title to his list after interviewing NASCAR Camping World Series driver Jordan Anderson during a rain delay at the Kentucky Speedway. While chatting, Anderson revealed that he and his crew received free sandwiches from Sadler’s Virginia based travel plaza while making the long trek to the Dover International Speedway. Hermie stated that he guessed he was now, “indirectly a sponsor” of the #1 Jacob Industries/Bommarito Chevrolet. Anderson jokingly responded that Sadler should have a decal on his truck in return for the sandwiches and, just like that, a “sponsorship” was formed.
Taking the joke one step further, Anderson worked in conjunction with Shawn Magee from ShawnMageeDesign.com (SMD) and Shane Smith from workingonmyredneck.com to create a “Fueled by Hermie’s Sandwiches” decal to place on the side of the #1 Chevrolet. Shawn, owner and Creative Director of the Canton, Ohio based agency and Shane, a representative of the NASCAR media outlet workingonmyredneck.com, worked alongside Jordan to ensure the decals were designed, printed and placed on Anderson’s #1 truck for the Overton’s 150 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Pocono Raceway.
“Anytime you can leverage exposure on prominent networks such as Fox Sports (FS1), it’s a huge benefit. Especially for small race teams fighting to make it in NASCAR,” said SMD owner Shawn Magee. “We saw an opportunity during the interview between Anderson and Sadler on a rain delay in Kentucky and we jumped on it.”
Anderson plans on racing in the LTI Printing 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the Michigan International Speedway on August 12th.
