Josh Berry will Pilot LubeZone Camaro for Two Events in 2023
LubeZone, Inc., an Epika company and the fastest growing network of preventative maintenance centers for heavy and medium duty trucks in the United States, will be the primary partner for Josh Berry and the No. 8 Chevrolet for two events during the 2023 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. The No. 8 LubeZone Chevrolet will debut at Michigan International Speedway on Aug. 5 and Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Oct. 14.
Although it marks LubeZone’s initial foray into NASCAR, for Berry, the partnership adds another chapter in the long-standing relationship with Mark Clark, Executive President and Cofounder of LubeZone, which dates back to Berry’s early Late Model days.
“It’s great to be able to work with Mark (Clark) again and to welcome LubeZone to this No. 8 team,” said Berry. “Mark and I had much success together in Late Models, and it’s really cool to see our paths cross again and that we get to continue this journey into the NASCAR Xfinity Series together. It will make our first race in Michigan that much more special.”
Founded in 2017, LubeZone provides timely preventative maintenance solutions to the transportation industry. Currently, with 11 locations across Texas, Oklahoma, California, and Georgia, the top-tier truck service company’s preventative maintenance is designed to get professional drivers back on the road with their high-speed, high-quality service.
“I am excited to be back with both JR Motorsports and Josh Berry to bring LubeZone to the Xfinity Series,” said Mark Clark. “I believe our success will continue on and off the track, and we’re looking forward to Josh winning the championship next year! Fast is Back!”
During their time in the Late Model ranks, Berry and Clark were a formidable pairing. Together, the duo brought home a staggering 38 wins at short-tracks across the southeast.
“We’re very grateful to have Mark (Clark) and LubeZone join JRM and support Josh for these races,” said Kelley Earnhardt Miller, JR Motorsports CEO. “They have a strong, successful history together from Josh’s time running Late Models. Now, it’s a special opportunity to have the two reunite as Josh enters his second full-time season.”
Additionally, LubeZone will continue its partnership at the grassroots level with Earnhardt Miller’s son, Wyatt Miller, for the third consecutive year. Miller competes in the Outlaw Kart and Micro Sprint levels all across the United States, most notably at Millbridge Speedway in Salisbury, N.C. He’s racked up multiple victories with Lubezone, including a Restricted Micro Sprint championship at Millbridge.
