To kick off their partnership, John Hunter Nemechek will pilot the No. 36 Yanmar/Martin Generators Ford Mustang for Front Row Motorsports in just his second Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series start this weekend at ISM Raceway in Phoenix, Ariz.
For over a century, YANMAR has grown to become a major supplier of YANMAR branded industrial and marine diesel engines, diesel generators, micro cogeneration and gas heat pump energy system solutions, compact construction equipment and compact utility tractors, employing thousands of dedicated team members throughout the world. Martin Generators builds YANMAR diesel powered generators that help operate FRM's team haulers at the track each week. Without the continued reliability of the Martin Generators, FRM's trackside operations would be severely disrupted.
"I'm really excited to work with Yanmar and Martin Generators this weekend in Phoenix," said Nemechek. "They literally help power this team at the track each week. Matt Tifft had a successful run at ISM Raceway in the spring, and I've won the pole there in Xfinity previously. I'm ready to get back into the Cup car and make all of them proud."
In addition to helping power the team's haulers and serving as the primary sponsor this weekend, Yanmar is also working with FRM to produce "Inside Front Row Motorsports," a behind-the-scenes video series, featuring an exclusive look at the preparations involved in a typical race weekend for the team. The first installment of the series was released today on FRM's YouTube channel.
The No. 36 Yanmar/Martin Generators Ford Mustang will make its debut at ISM Raceway on Friday, November 8 for practice. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at ISM Raceway will air Sunday, November 10 at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
