AdventHealth has switched to Legacy Motor Club for the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series, the team confirmed on Tuesday.
AdventHealth has partnered with the NASCAR team to serve as Erik Jones and the No. 43 team’s primary sponsor for the upcoming season as Jimmie Johnson will also receive backing from the company during his part-time schedule.
Jones will race in the season-opening Daytona 500 on February 18 sporting the AdventHealth colors for the first time. After that, AdventHealth will get featured in five more races in the No. 43 Toyota Camry.
Johnson’s contract calls for three races. The first is scheduled for April 14 at Texas Motor Speedway, and the others for May 5 at Kansas Speedway and May 26 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Additionally, the company will serve as the title sponsor of the AdventHealth 400 in Kansas.
“We are thrilled to partner with Legacy Moto Club and drivers Erik Jones and Jimmie Johnson and are looking forward to a winning 2024 race season,” said AdventHealth president and CEO Terry Shaw.
“AdventHealth has been a sponsor in the sport since 2015 and we appreciate the opportunity to provide care for this team and the passionate NASCAR fan base.
“Together we can make a tremendous impact in our communities and ensure more people have the opportunity to access whole-person care.”
Jones will be running the No. 43 LMC for the fourth time in 2024 and it is his third under the Legacy M.C. banner after Richard Petty’s operation was largely taken over by Maury Gallagher in 2021.
“This is a great partnership for me on the professional and personal level,” Jones said. “Healthcare is one of my key pillars in the Erik Jones Foundation and when I met with the leadership of AdventHealth our values aligned instantly.
“I hope we can forge a great path together in this new relationship and do many things to positively impact the community both around the tracks and across the U.S.”
Johnson, who is also a co-owner of the organization, will drive the No. 81 Toyota on a part-time basis and will be operating a Toyota at the Cup Series level for the first time.
“This is a wonderful day for Legacy M.C.,” Johnson added. “AdventHealth believes health should be measured in terms of the whole person — body, mind and spirit.
“This partnership is a natural fit for our Club and I know we will do great things together. I can’t wait for this season to get started.”
The company sponsored the Trackhouse Racing Cup program in 2023 and entered six races featuring on Ross Chastain’s No. 1 car.
