STATESVILLE, N.C. — Midnight Moon Moonshine will sponsor the No. 24 Chevrolet Silverado of reigning NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series champion Brett Moffitt at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 17.
Midnight Moon is inspired by Junior Johnson’s family moonshine recipe and true to the roots of moonshine, it is made from 100 percent American corn and handcrafted in small batches.
They use a state-of-the-art distillation process to make a superior quality spirit that’s very clean and ultra-smooth. Midnight Moon does not have the heavy corn taste people often associate with illegal moonshine. It’s then blended with ultra-clean water that has been through a five-step filtration process, and the result is a very smooth spirit with a subtle sweetness from the corn.
Midnight Moon offers an unflavored, straight style, as well as a number of moonshine flavors hand-packed with real fruit. Flavors include Apple Pie, Cherry, Strawberry, Blueberry, Blackberry, etc.
“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to partner with the GMS Racing team and honored to have Midnight Moon on the reigning champ’s truck,” said Joe Michalek, president of Piedmont Distillers. “Junior and I can’t wait to see Brett back at victory lane.”
In two Truck Series starts at Charlotte, Moffitt has earned one top-five finish. He was fourth in last year’s event after leading 28 laps.
“I’m excited to have Midnight Moon on board with us in Charlotte,” Moffitt said. “To have a connection to a legend like Junior Johnson and his history with moonshining in NASCAR’s own backyard is really cool. Hopefully I can sip some in Victory Lane next Friday.”
