Front Row Motorsports Announces Winner of Campaign Recognizing Frontline Workers
MOORESVILLE, N.C. (October 27, 2020) – During the summer months, Front Row Motorsports (FRM) teamed up with partner Death Wish Coffee for a new cause marketing campaign aimed at showing appreciation for truck drivers on the front lines who are working hard to deliver goods during the COVID-19 pandemic. The winning truck driver’s name will be featured on John Hunter Nemechek’s No. 38 Ford Mustang this weekend at Martinsville Speedway.
After receiving over 3,000 entries as part of the “Thank A Trucker” contest, FRM and Death Wish Coffee chose Jason Griffith as the winner. Based in Las Vegas, Nev., Griffith is on the road full-time, spending just a few days each month at home with his wife and twin six-year-old girls.
“It was a lot of fun to be involved in this campaign,” said Nemechek. “We received a lot of entries and our team really loved Jason’s story. We want to extend our sincere gratitude to Jason and all other truck drivers across the country who are working hard and making difficult sacrifices – not just for their families, but for us as a nation as we grapple with the pandemic.”
“We could not be more thrilled with our winner and this contest,” said Mike Brown, CEO of Death Wish Coffee. “Jason is a model driver and we are proud to honor him on the No. 38 Death Wish Coffee car. We are also excited to give a nod to 100 other drivers who entered the contest whom will be receiving a pound of Death Wish Coffee and a $100 visa gift card from us as a thank you for being on the front lines during this pandemic. We are very grateful to all of our truckers and haulers for keeping the country moving during this time!”
The No. 38 Death Wish Coffee “Thank A Trucker” Ford Mustang will make its debut at Martinsville Speedway on Sunday, November 1 for the “Xfinity 500.” The race will be broadcast on NBC and MRN at 2 p.m. ET.

Nemechek on Kansas:
"We've consistently made progress in our mile-and-a-half program at Front Row Motorsports. Michael [McDowell] and I both had top-20 finishes at Kansas earlier this year and I know we're both looking forward to having a good run on Sunday. Kansas is a little different in that you can run the top, which is the preferred groove. The straightaways aren't straight and the tri-oval at Kansas gives you a different feeling than a track like Charlotte.
"This will be Speedy Cash's final primary race of the year with us. It's been exciting to be a part of their program at FRM. I'm thankful they were able to step up their support this year and hope we can give them a strong finish on Sunday."
No. 38 CITGARD Ford Mustang
Nemechek on the ROVAL:
“The ROVAL was not our friend today, unfortunately. Our No. 38 CITGARD Ford Mustang fired off pretty decent, but the rear end just stepped out on me in the first half of the race and I couldn’t save it. We pitted for damage repair and received a penalty that put us two more laps down and we couldn’t really recover from there. Sometimes mistakes just hurt. Hopefully it was still a good show for the fans. It was great that we were able to have them with us in in person at home. We’ll add what we can to our notebook for next time and get ready for Kansas.”
Nemechek on Charlotte ROVAL:
"I ran the ROVAL at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Xfinity last year and we had a decent result. It’s a unique place so I think we’re going to see some great racing again this weekend. The weather may end up playing a factor, so that will make things interesting. Regardless, I’m looking forward to having a fast car to try and get us to Victory Lane.
"It’s great to see our partners at CITGARD back on our No. 38 Ford Mustang for the ROVAL. We had a decent car at the Daytona Road Course earlier this season, so I’m hoping we can channel our speed into a great result at our hometown track."
