LEGACY MOTOR CLUB announced on Wednesday a new multi-year partnership with Massey Motor Freight, a Texas-based delivery service of national road transportation. The deal will see Massey Motor Freight become a multi-race primary sponsor of the team's No. 42 and No. 43 entries, and the official kickoff of the partnership is the Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway on Sunday, June 30.

Additionally, Massey Motor Freight will serve as an associate sponsorship partner of the No. 42 machine, which is driven by John Hunter Nemechek for the duration of the of the partnership. Massey Motor Freight has also been declared the Official Trucking Partner of LEGACY MOTOR CLUB. LMC will utilize three of Massey Motor Freight's tractors to pull the team's race haulers to each NASCAR Cup Series event.

“The Massey Motor Freight team is thrilled to announce our partnership with LEGACY MOTOR CLUB. The foundation on which Massey Motor Freight was built - integrity, hard work, and teamwork - aligns perfectly with those of LEGACY MOTOR CLUB, making this sponsorship an ideal fit for Massey,” said Troy Massey, Owner and Chief Executive Owner. “We anticipate a successful finish to the 2024 season and beyond with the team LEGACY has assembled.”

For LEGACY MOTOR CLUB the partnership with Massey is a no-brainer. The team feels the company shares the same dedication to excellence and the overall mantra of the team aligns with that of Massey.

“This is really exciting for LEGACY M.C.”, said co-owner Jimmie Johnson. “Massey trucks are top of the line, and their mantra of ‘Hustle Hard, Stay Humble’ really aligns with our values at the CLUB. They are passionate about trucking, racing, and their drivers. This is the start of a great partnership.”

After Sonoma Raceway, Erik Jones (driver of the No. 43 Toyota) ranks 25th in the NASCAR Cup Series driver standings, while John Hunter Nemechek (driver of the No. 42 Toyota) finds himself in 28th.

Jones did miss two NASCAR Cup Series events after sustaining a fracture in his back in a hard crash at Talladega Superspeedway earlier this season, but received a medical waiver from NASCAR and is eligible to contend for the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs if he's able to point his way in, or if he can win a race.

Jones started the season off with a hope-inducing eighth-place finish in the Daytona 500, but it's been a struggle since then for consistency for the No. 43 team. Jones has yet to score any top-10s aside from the season-opening race, but he does have three additional top-15 finishes. Jones has finished 19th in three of his last four starts, including this past weekend at Sonoma Raceway.

Nemechek has two top-10 finishes this year, a seventh-place finish in the Daytona 500 and a sixth-place effort at Bristol Motor Speedway. However, Nemechek racked up back-to-back DNFs at Martinsville and Texas earlier this year, and he currently sits on a four-race streak of finishing 27th-or-worse.

The team will look to right the ship this weekend at Iowa Speedway to set themselves up to carry momentum into their first race weekend with Massey on their cars at Nashville.
