StarCom Racing anchors down new partners for the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway with Landon Cassill as Captain of the Local Knowledge 00 Chevy and Kyle Weatherman at the helm of the International Marine 99 Chevy.
With the perseverance and enthusiasm of our First Mate David Ducharme of Superior Essex, SCR’s team associate sponsor, this partnership was able to set sail.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Local Knowledge since the first episode and always thought it would be great to somehow incorporate NASCAR into the show,” David Ducharme, of Superior Essex. “I reached out to Ali via social media and the rest is history! I’m very excited for the millions of fans that will be tuning in for the Championship race at Homestead to see the 00 Local Knowledge Mahi and the 99 International Marine Marlin Chevy.”
Local Knowledge, a fishing documentary hosted by Ali Hussainy and Rush Maltz which airs on the Discovery Channel, explores the culture of fishing while focuses on the differing and often humorous viewpoints of its two hosts that dedicate their lives to fishing and the outdoors.
“We were very excited when David Ducharme of Superior Essex reached out to us with an opportunity to sponsor the 00 Car in Homestead this year,” said Ali Hussainy, Host of Local Knowledge. “Local Knowledge is more about the people that fish than just fishing alone, and we couldn’t think of two sports that go together better than NASCAR and fishing! Be sure to look for the show to air on season four of Local Knowledge on the Discovery Channel.”
“As a FL Keys native, I’m really looking forward to being part of the Championship race at Homestead this year. Many of viewers are big NASCAR fans and I’m looking forward to bringing the two worlds together,” said Rush Maltz, Host of Local Knowledge
International Marine built its reputation on trust, reliability and above all, quality of work. International Marine has taken the guess work out of who to choose for your boat maintenance needs and offers a one stop shop for everything from: Electronics installation, Suzuki outboard service and repowers, JL audio system design and installation, boat detailing, and much more.
“The entire International Marine/ Native Boatworks team is very excited to be involved with NASCAR for the Homestead race,” said Brian Kock, Director of Sales, International Marine Services. “The opportunity to broaden our exposure for our boats and services is a natural fit with the fans, and teams alike.”
We are looking forward to Kyle Weatherman driving the International Marine/ Native Boatworks car for us at Homestead and are sure that he will chase down the Dolphin / Local Knowledge car,” said Micheal Reimer, Vice President, International Marine Services
