MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Green Smoke, a leading producer of electronic cigarettes, will sponsor T.J. Bell and the No. 32 FAS Lane Racing Ford during the Coca-Cola 600 Sunday.
In addition, to help celebrate the sacrifices of our service men and women on Memorial Day weekend, Green Smoke is hosting Jay Carey, a 14-year military veteran who was injured on duty, through its support of the HERO organization.
Carey is a decorated U.S. Army and USAF veteran who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, but suffered injuries during his enlistment that made him unable to continue his military career.
“It’s our honor to have Jay Carey as our guest at Charlotte,” said Bell. “Fortunately the HERO organization and Green Smoke are helping to support him. Jay is a hero in every sense of the word. He’s made invaluable contributions to our nation as a member of our armed forces. There’s no way we can repay him for the service and sacrifices he’s provided for our nation, but hopefully the race will be a nice way for us to offer a token of appreciation. We’ll be rolling out the red carpet for him and doing all we can to make this a special weekend for him.”
Green Smoke’s first NASCAR sponsorship was aboard Bell’s car in the 2011 Coca-Cola 600. Since then, it has served as a primary and associate sponsor for several vehicles in NASCAR’s top-three series.
Green Smoke is a full-time sponsor of FAS Lane Racing in 2012 and plans to sponsor the No. 32 Ford in four other races this season with Bell behind the wheel.
“It’s great to have Green Smoke back on our car for the Coca-Cola 600,” Bell said. “They’ve been a strong supporter of our sport over the past year and I appreciate all they’ve contributed. Racing has helped spread their name to millions of fans and helped boost their website activity. They’re looking to utilize their sponsorship this year as they start to partner with retailers. They’ve enjoyed success on and off the track and I’m proud that I’ve helped play a part in that.”
