(HOUSTON) — Las Vegas is known for its Air Force military presence, but this time there will be a new “wave” coming in town. U.S. Naval Academy graduate and U.S. Navy officer Lt. Jesse Iwuji will be making his first Las Vegas Motor Speedway start in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series Race. Iwuji will be the only current military member racing in NASCAR that entire weekend and doing so with Reaume Bros. Racing.
“I have a new partnership this race with FuelTrax and this one’s special to me. FuelTrax is a U.S. company that has pioneered and led the industry in marine fuel management systems which speaks my mariner language. And to top it off, over 50 percent of their operations are based out of my native country, Nigeria.” said Iwuji.
Anthony George, CEO of FuelTrax, said, “It’s always been a passion for both me and my wife Michelle to give back to young men and women and help them reach their dreams. Lt. Iwuji is a big dreamer and a hard worker, and we are honored to help him continue on his journey to success in NASCAR.”
“We are so grateful for our Nigerian-based marine operators and proud to support Lt. Iwuji both as one of our very own from our community, and as a first-generation American pursuing his dreams. Nigerians everywhere should be proud of Jesse’s success,” said Bene Okorie, West Africa operations manager of FuelTrax.
From its inception in 2004, FuelTrax has grown to be a leading universal fuel management solution for offshore marine vessels, compatible with any class, engine or fuel type. Available in any location in the world, FuelTrax has grown recently in Nigeria by combating fuel accountability challenges for local operators. Together with its cloud-based data and analytics service, FuelNet, it reduces costs and sets the standard for data-driven decisions.
