MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Natalie Decker and DGR-Crosley will have sponsorship from Double D Express Towing & Transport this weekend when the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series visits Talladega Superspeedway.
Double D Express will have its logo on both sides of the rear quarter panels of Decker’s No. 54 DGR-Crosley Toyota Tundra at Talladega Superspeedway.
“I’m excited to get back to Dega, and adding this new partnership with Double D Express makes it that much more exciting,” said Decker. “They are a small business and my family has always been involved in small businesses, so it’s something near and dear to my heart. I am excited to race with them and see where the partnership goes in the future with Double D Express.”
Double D Express Towing & Transport is based out of Daleville, Ind. However, they operate throughout the South East and Midwest, with a secondary home base out of Naples, Fla. They have been in business since 1995 and are family owned and operated.
“The thought of partnering with Natalie has been on our radar for a few months. We then reached out to the Decker team to see if there was any way possible, a small company like ours could do anything with them.” explained Tracey Pierce, owner of Double D Express Towing & Transport. “They came back and said that they thought they could work something out with us to make our first splash into NASCAR. It was on from there.”
Though this will be their first time in NASCAR, the Pierce family is very familiar with auto sports, having an NHRA team of their own. Additionally, her children race and have been involved with the sport, from her children who race dragsters as well as karts, to her 6-month-old granddaughter. who spends time out at the track as well.
“We’re diehard drag racers. But, we were looking for something different to get our name out there, and Natalie caught my eye. I’ve been watching her for a while. She is pretty much on her game when it comes to racing,” said Pierce.
Though the current deal with Decker is set for one race, Pierce believes that Double D Express Towing & Transport will be working with Decker again in the future.
“We are planning on doing more stuff with Natalie. However, our focus is the Talladega race for now, and we will see what happens from there,” said Pierce.
