Story By: JEFF DENNISON / FRONT ROW MOTORSPORTS – MOORESVILLE, NC – Fr8Auctions, a staple partner of Front Row Motorsports (FRM), today announced its continued support of the organization for its eighth consecutive season.
The Atlanta, Georgia-based asset recovery business has been one of the longest-tenured and loyal partners to FRM and has supported its growth into a winning and championship team.
Fr8Auctions began its partnership with FRM with support of its No. 34 team before supporting Georgia-native David Ragan during his tenure racing the No. 38 Ford. Now, for the second consecutive season, Fr8Auctions.com will partner with both the 2021 Daytona 500 champion, Michael McDowell and the 2022 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series champion, Zane Smith
“We are thrilled to continue our support of FRM, Michael and Zane as they both build on their huge successes of 2022,” said Marcus Barela, Founder, Fr8 Auctions. “It was awesome to be part of the championship year with Zane, and watching Michael run his best statistical season in Cup to date only excites us more for what is coming this season for him and that team.”
Fr8Auctions, the leading asset recovery organization in the Southeast, will adorn the No. 34 Ford Mustang in both their home state and at marque NASCAR Cup Series events in 2023, starting at The Clash at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on February 5.
Along with The Clash, Fr8Auctions.com will join McDowell’s No. 34 car at both the Atlanta Motor Speedway events, the All-Star race at the North Wilkesboro Speedway, and finally the regular-season finale at the Daytona International Speedway.
“This is a big milestone to be celebrated and admired,” said McDowell. “Fr8Auctions has been a loyal supporter of Front Row Motorsports and have been a critical part of our growth. It is great to have their continued support because we can’t continue to get better without their support. We have bigger goals this season and Fr8Auctions.com will get us started in the right direction at The Clash and be with us all season.”
Smith and the Ford F-150 team will run the Fr8Auctions.com branding at the Fr8 208 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series on Saturday, March 18. Smith hopes to bring Fr8Auctions.com a win at their home track.
“We really want to get the Fr8Auctions.com Ford into victory lane at Atlanta during their race event this year,” said Smith. “That is a goal that we have this season. Also, they were one of the biggest supporters of our program last season, and I am excited to have Fr8Auctions.com with us as we chase our second championship together.”
