BATESVILLE, Ark (June 1, 2018) – The Mark Martin Podcast will sponsor Jordan Anderson at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event at Texas Motor Speedway on June 8th. Anderson, who is amidst his fourth full season with the series, has ties to Mark Martin back to when he was a kid.
"I first learned of Jordan when he was about 10 years old racing in the Bandolero division at Charlotte with my son, Matt," said Martin. "He was practically unbeatable. He was racing some really fierce competition every week and if he didn’t have trouble, he was the man to beat."
In a world where car owners hire drivers to run their equipment, Anderson counters that trend. The Columbia, South Carolina native is both the owner and driver for Jordan Anderson Racing.
"I love that he does things the old school way," continued Martin. "He pulls a smaller enclosed trailer with a dually crew cab pickup truck. There’s no big money involved. He has just enough equipment for a couple trucks. He has a couple full-time employees and everybody else is volunteer help. He’s doing it the old school way like a lot of us did a generation before him coming into NASCAR."
Anderson has a big following across several social media platforms. He has taken to social media to interact with his fans to help with crowdfunding efforts to secure sponsorship and keep his team out on the road.
Last year, Anderson ran the majority of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series schedule running just one truck. This year, he has a four-car stable, which includes one Toyota, two Chevrolets, and one Ford.
Through the first seven races, Anderson sits 16th in the point standings with one top 10.
Catch the Anderson and the Mark Martin Podcast No. 3 NASCAR Camping World Truck at Texas Motor Speedway on June 8th at 9:00 pm Eastern on FS1 and MRN.
Anderson will be a guest on Episode 8 of the Mark Martin Podcast to chat about their partnership for the Texas race, Anderson’s career, and much more. The episode will be released on June 4th.
About the Mark Martin Podcast: The all-new Mark Martin Podcast launch on March 12, 2018, and has touched on several different eras and divisions within the sport in its first seven episodes as told by the man himself; Mark Martin.
"It’s about getting together and telling old stories. Telling the tales of racing, working, struggling and coming up through the ranks," explained Martin. "I like to share the stories of other great racers from that era or a story like Jordan’s. I like to use the podcast as a platform to give people who don’t usually get the recognition they deserve because they don’t have the same opportunities that others do, but they have the drive, desire and skill."
