Washington, D.C. – America’s Power announced today the launch of its third-annual “Meet Dale Jr. Contest.” Through its partnership with JR Motorsports, America’s Power is pleased to offer NASCAR fans across the country a chance to meet Dale Earnhardt, Jr. during NASCAR’s championship weekend.

 

“Our fans are what make NASCAR so great, so I’m excited to once again partner with America’s Power for this opportunity,” Dale Earnhardt, Jr. said. “America’s Power and JR Motorsports have had a great run so far, largely due to our shared commitment to protect affordable, reliable coal-based electricity for consumers and businesses across the U.S.”

 

Since 2012, America’s Power has sponsored a JR Motorsports car in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, including the past two seasons with driver Regan Smith. The partnership between America’s Power and JR Motorsports is designed to educate fans on the need for coal-fueled electricity.

 

Through America’s Power’s work with JR Motorsports, Dale Jr. has toured the country meeting with fans at NASCAR tracks and talking with local communities about the importance of coal-based electricity. Since the partnership began, Dale Jr. has witnessed first-hand how low-cost, reliable electricity is generated from coal, visiting the CONSOL Energy Enlow Fork Mine in Pennsylvania and traveling to some of the most advanced coal power plants in the world, including the John W. Turk, Jr. Power Plant in Arkansas and the Kemper County energy facility in Mississippi.
