Friday, October 2, 2015 Associate Sponsor for Joey Gase, Means Racing at Charlotte is proud to announce its associate sponsorship of Joey Gase and Jimmy Means Racing’s #52 Donate Life Chevrolet in the upcoming Drive for the Cure 300 NASCAR XFINITY Series race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Friday, October 9, 2015.  The site will join more than 20 other supporters whose names, photographs, and logos will appear on Gase's hood as part of a promotion with, a cancer research initiative.

A family-run operation like Means Racing itself, consists of brothers Brock and Miles Beard, who conceived of the website during the 2008-2009 offseason.  What started as statistical updates on NASCAR’s last-place finishers has evolved into full race reports and features on teams and drivers who fight from the back of the pack - both in NASCAR and in other forms of racing.  The site has been featured on, Jayski’s Silly Season Site, “Doin’ Donuts” on, “Manifold Destiny,” and “The Carey and Coffey Show” to name a few.  The brothers also report trackside at the Sonoma Raceway in their native northern California.

This is not’s first foray into associate sponsorship in NASCAR.  In September 2011, the site purchased space on Steve Park’s #35 “Ol’ Blue” Tribute Chevrolet, a Sprint Cup Series ride fielded by Tommy Baldwin Racing for the Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  Then in February 2013, supported the Daytona 500 effort of Brian Keselowski and the #52 Wreaths Across America / Highland Wealth Advisors Toyota from K-Automotive Motorsports.  While both cars barely missed qualifying for their respective races, Gase is locked-in to the Charlotte race by virtue of his current 21st-place spot in Owner Points, securing the site its first race-day appearance.

2015 has been a tumultuous year for Gase and Means Racing.  In their fourth season together, Gase stormed the iconic #52 to a career-best 5th-place finish at Talladega in April, besting such Sprint Cup stars as Kasey Kahne, Aric Almirola, Elliott Sadler, Regan Smith, and Kenny Wallace.  For Means, it was the veteran’s first-ever top-five finish in a sport he joined as an owner-driver in 1976.  Then as now, hard work and persistence have been rewarded, and the team remains both a respected member of the garage and a fixture on the racetrack. is thrilled to be a part of this effort.

So stay tuned on Friday, October 9 to the NBC Sports Network at 8:00 P.M. Eastern and on Twitter with the hashtag #LastMeansFirst as Means Racing and team up for 300 miles under the lights!
