Legrand backs NASCAR driver JJ Yeley at Daytona

Monday, March 6, 2017


 Legrand sponsors Nascar car.

The Legrand team had a real blast on February 24th, at the Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway!

What were we doing in Daytona, the “World Center of Racing” for NASCAR?

Watching the Legrand truck – #22 in the program– at the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250.

This unique opportunity came about through our partnership with Superior Essex and AM Racing (@AMRacingNASCAR). We teamed with Superior Essex to back veteran NASCAR driver JJ Yeley as he piloted the Legrand truck (a Toyota Tundra) in his 23rd career NCWTS start – and first since last March’s race at Atlanta (Ga.) Motor Speedway.

This was a first for Legrand – sponsoring a NASCAR truck and participating in the excitement with some of our customers. It was an exciting race with JJ Yeley narrowly missing a large pile-up early in the race and finishing P9 in the race. Great job to JJ and we are excited for the opportunity to be a sponsor of more races to come.
