Truck Emblazoned With America First Action Logo To Race In NASCAR Camping World Truck Series On Saturday

America First Action is pleased to announce that a Chevy Silverado featuring the America First Action logo will race in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Virginia, this Saturday. 

The NASCAR Camping World Truck Series is a pickup truck racing series owned and operated by the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR), and is the only NASCAR race series that features modified production pickup trucks.

The truck, also emblazoned with conservative youth organization Turning Point USA’s logo on its hood, will race this Saturday, October 27, at 1 PM EST, in the “Texas Roadhouse 200” race, which features 32 trucks racing 200 laps (105.2 miles). It will air live on FOX Sports. 

The truck will be driven by Tyler Dippel, an 18-year-old professional stock car racer from Wallkill, New York. Dippel, who is affiliated with the GMS Racing team out of Statesville, North Carolina, started his racing career at age 7 and won his first national championship at the age of 10. He made his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut in July 2018 at Eldora Speedway in Ohio. He is coming off a win two weeks ago at Talladega Superspeedway.

“I'm very excited to get on track with the 25 team this weekend,” said Dippel, referring to his racing number. “Hopefully we can have a strong day, run up front, and bring some attention to the two great organizations we have on the truck this weekend: America First and Turning Point USA.”

“It will be a thrill to see our logo on the famed Martinsville Speedway this Saturday,” said Brian O. Walsh, president of America First Action.

“We hope that when NASCAR fans around the country see the America First truck, they will remember to vote Republican on November 6 so that our President can continue to enact the America-first policies that have put our country back on the right track (no pun intended),” added Thomas O. Hicks, Jr., chairman of the board of America First Action. 

America First Action, the primary super PAC dedicated to electing congressional candidates in support of the Trump-Pence agenda, has invested more than $20 million into competitive House and Senate races ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.
