Faison and Sherwin-Williams are heading to Daytona

Mooresville, NC - NASCAR K&N driver CJ Faison planned to kick off his 2013 race season at Bristol next month until just two days ago a phone call from Sherwin Williams changed that plan entirely. Faison answered the call and a deal was struck to put the #39 Sherwin Williams Impala SS in the field at the UNOH Battle at the Beach inaugural event at Daytona International Speedway on February 19.

It was business as usual around the JMI shop, with Faison and crew chief Mark McFarland building a new short track car for the Greenville Pickens race. Since the call from Sherwin Williams, the team has switched gears, as this car will now be the primary car for the UNOH Battle at the Beach.

“I was really excited when the call came in from the folks at Sherwin William” said Faison, the 19 year old Seaford, Delaware native. “Finding out our race season is starting sooner than anticipated thanks to our partnership with Sherwin Williams was great news and I can’t wait to get to Daytona.”

McFarland is confident going into the Daytona race. “With the new sponsors plan for us to run Daytona, we had to put our efforts into high gear. We will have a fresh power plant from Robert Yates Racing Engines and a new short track car complete, Faison will be poised to chase the win at Daytona”, stated McFarland.

McFarland and Faison ended the 2012 season on a high note with the Pole at Rockingham and a top 10 finish at Dover, this duo will not only challenge for the win in Daytona, but a run for the 2013 NASCAR K&N Pro East Series championship is surely in clear sights. Be sure to catch Faison at the UNOH Battle at the Beach, live from Daytona International Speedway on SPEED at 8:30pm, February 19. Also follow Faison @cjfaison on Twitter and on Facebook.

Since its founding by Henry Sherwin and Edward Williams in 1866, The Sherwin-Williams 
Company has not only grown to be the largest producer of paints and coatings in the United States, but is among the largest producers in
the world.
