“It’s great to have Uponor onboard for the final Nationwide Series race of the year,” said Earnhardt. “At the Charlotte race, I met a lot of customers that use Uponor’s products. It’s always cool to learn more about your sponsors, and getting the chance to spend time with the contractors is right in my wheelhouse. I like the hardworking crowd and look forward to giving them someone to cheer for in NASCAR.”

This will be Earnhardt’s fourth partnership race with Uponor, a leading manufacturer of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX-a) tubing and provider of plumbing, fire sprinkler and radiant heating and cooling systems for commercial and residential structures worldwide.
