Carolina Skiff “Teams Up” with NASCAR’s #98 Cole Whitt!
Cole Whitt is one of the toughest, most skilled drivers in the NASCAR realm, so it comes as no surprise that the company creating the most versatile and durable boats on the market today has become a proud Cole Whitt sponsor!
“Team Skiff” brings a thirty-year glowing reputation with them for being one of the nation’s top fiberglass boat builders. The #1 manufacturer in retail sales of fiberglass outboard-powered saltwater boats, 14 feet+, they manufacture the Carolina Skiff, Sea Chaser, and Fun Chaser boat brands. Incredibly pleased with this new partnership with NASCAR’s #98 and Premium Motorsports, the sponsorship appeared at the Memorial Day Weekend NASCAR race—the Coca-Cola 600—held at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 29th.
Team owner Jay Robinson spoke about “Team Skiff,” stating: “We believe Carolina Skiff is a quality boat company that provides great options to families and fishing enthusiasts to enjoy their time on the water, no matter where they are. They are a great fit for our team and especially for Cole.”
Whitt, too, was excited about the sponsorship. A man who said the, “only thing I like doing more than racing is fishing and boating,” further stated that he’s looking forward “to being a big part of the Carolina Skiff family for the foreseeable future, and having some fun off the track and on the water very soon.”
Cole Whitt is as stable, skilled and reliable as Carolina Skiff. Beginning his racing career at a young age in his home state of California, Cole rose through the ranks of karting, midget and sprint car racing to become the youngest winner of the USAC National Midget Championship in 2008. Switching to NASCAR two years later, he ran a full season in the K&N Pro Series East. Moving on to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2011, and the NASCAR XFINITY Series in 2012, Cole finished in the “Top 10” in driver points both of those rookie seasons.
The Coca-Cola 600 brought extreme pride to Carolina Skiff, LLC, partnering with Cole and Premium Motorsports for the 600 miles of remembrance race that honored our men and women who bravely served and lost their lives while defending this great country. During the race at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, “Team Skiff” had the honor of paying tribute by remembering fallen American Hero Cpl. Michael D. Anderson Jr., a brave man, killed in action on 12-14-2004 in the “Battle for Fallujah.” As part of NASCAR’s program to honor these brave Americans, Cpl. Michael D. Anderson Jr.’s name plate was displayed on the front windshield of the #98 Carolina Skiff car during the race.
Talk about an ideal partnership: A company known far and wide for its genius in the boat-building world, teaming up with a driver who knows exactly how to get the job done while on the track and enjoy the peaceful world of boating while off, this is one “team” that definitely earns the checkered flag of success!
Look for “Team Skiff” on August 20th at the Bristol Race, then on to the Darlington Race being held on September 4th!
