Murphy In For NEMCO At Bristol


BRISTOL, Tenn. — Camden Murphy will wheel the No. 8 NEMCO Motorsports Chevrolet in Thursday night’s NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series event at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Advanced Collision will be the primary sponsor of the team as the 24-year-old driver makes his sixth start with NEMCO and his second at the .533-mile concrete oval.

“I am incredibly excited to be able to drive for NEMCO Motorsports,” Murphy said. “NEMCO Motorsports has been an institution for the Nemechek family. To be able to drive for the family is an absolute honor. The No. 8 has so much history behind it, and for Mr. Nemechek to give me this opportunity is truly a dream come true.

“I have a history behind the wheel with NEMCO Motorsports but not at this capacity,” he continued. “Having worked on the trucks as well, I know how much dedication and hard work goes into these fast trucks. I am excited to have Advanced Collision and the Southern Appalachian Ronald McDonald House Charities, Inc., on-board for this weekend at the Bristol Motor Speedway, as it is their first event on-track. I am so thankful to NEMCO Motorsports for giving me this opportunity, and I look forward to making them and my sponsors proud.”

Nestled between the rolling hills and mountains of Northeast Tennessee, Bristol Motor Speedway is the home track for primary partner Advanced Collision Inc., a locally owned and operated auto collision repair specialist company.

“Camden has been a huge part of the Advanced Collision family and the motorsports arm of our business since the beginning,” Curt Swearingin, chief executive officer for Advanced Collision Inc., said. “We are very excited about the opportunity to support Cam as he continues on his extraordinary growth and trajectory in the sport.”
