Envela will step in alongside Barstool Sports, as co-primary sponsor for Reaume Brothers Racing's No. 43 truck.
United States Military veteran Keith McGee was slated to run the No. 43 truck for Reaume Brothers Racing this Memorial Day Weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway. McGee had secured a full slate of sponsorship but just a few days ago, one of primary sponsors backed out last minute putting his dream in jeopardy. McGee took to Twitter to find another sponsorship partner for the race on May 24th, and that got the attention of Envela.

"I'm so grateful for the continued support of all our corporate sponsors, but after a last-minute cancelation, I was facing the real possibility of not racing on Memorial Day Weekend. As a military veteran, I was beyond excited when Envela offered to co-sponsor me and the No. 43 truck this weekend," said Keith McGee, driver. "Representing veterans by in the number 43 truck this Memorial Day weekend is a dream come true, and I'm grateful for Envela's support and generosity".
