FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Abingdon, VA – January 11th 2017
Martin-McClure Racing, owned by NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers Eric McClure and Hal Martin, announced today the team will field a second entry in the Pitt Lite 125 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event at Bristol Motor Speedway on April 22.
Chad Finchum, who scored the first win in MMR team history in a dominating performance in last season’s BMS event, will return to the Southwest, VA organization as he looks to defend his title. Bristol, VA native, Chris Carrier, who guided the effort in each of the three (3) team victories in 2016, will oversee the effort for Finchum.
The logos for Emory & Henry College will adorn the hood and TV panel of #39 Toyota Camry, while the college radio station, WEHC 90.7, will be displayed on the quarter-panels for the event. McClure, a 2000 graduate of EHC, and Martin will use this as a fundraiser for the college radio station to help ensure its long-term sustainability, as well as to provide opportunities for EHC students to benefit in a similar way as McClure. McClure credits his radio station experience and his education in Mass Communications at EHC to his becoming a NASCAR driver. All proceeds from the race at Bristol Motor Speedway will be donated to WEHC. Limited-edition merchandise will be available for purchase along with auction items and diecast model cars.
