STATESVILLE, N.C. — Legacy Motor Club will join forces with AdventHealth to field the No. 43 Toyota for Erik Jones in six NASCAR Cup Series races, including the season-opening Daytona 500.
Additionally, AdventHealth will compete in three events with seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson behind the wheel of the No. 84 Toyota at Texas Motor Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway and in the AdventHealth 400 at Kansas Speedway.
“We are thrilled to partner with Legacy Motor Club and drivers Erik Jones and Jimmie Johnson and are looking forward to a winning 2024 race season. AdventHealth has been a sponsor in the sport since 2015 and we appreciate the opportunity to provide care for this team and the passionate NASCAR fan base. Together we can make a tremendous impact in our communities and ensure more people have the opportunity to access whole-person care,” said Terry Shaw, president/CEO for AdventHealth.
The announcement came as Jones and the No. 43 Legacy Motor Club team participated in a NASCAR test session at Phoenix Raceway on Dec. 5-6. This day marks the inaugural on-track outing for Legacy Motor Club since its manufacturer switched from Chevrolet to Toyota.
With more than 50 hospitals in nine states, race tracks like Daytona International Speedway, Charlotte Motor Speedway, Kansas Speedway and Atlanta Motor Speedway are all located within an AdventHealth market and near an AdventHealth facility.
“This is a great partnership for me on the professional and personal level,” said Jones. “Healthcare is one of my key pillars in the Erik Jones Foundation and when I met with the leadership of AdventHealth our values aligned instantly. I hope we can forge a great path together in this new relationship and do many things to positively impact the community both around the tracks and across the U.S.”
“This is a wonderful day for Legacy M.C.,” said co-owner Johnson. “AdventHealth believes health should be measured in terms of the whole person — body, mind and spirit. This partnership is a natural fit for our Club and I know we will do great things together. I can’t wait for this season to get started.”
