“Sim racing is an essential training tool for professional drivers like me. It helps us become better racers by simulating race experiences you can’t get anywhere else but on the track,” said Jesse Iwuji, TrueCar Military ambassador. “I’m excited to give one lucky fan the opportunity to have the ultimate sim racing rig and experience.”

“As a service member and professional racer, I know how important it is to have a support system to help make your dreams a reality,” added Iwuji. “I’m proud to partner with TrueCar to help empower someone to reach their goals and support their aspirations for sim racing. Who knows, we may even find the next professional racer!”

Jesse Iwuji is one of NASCAR’s few African American drivers competing in the sport. He is also TrueCar Military’s brand ambassador and was recently featured in TrueCar’s brand marketing campaign, “Drive On,” to build brand awareness and brand affinity for TrueCar’s military channel. TrueCar sponsored Iwuji’s NASCAR Xfinity Championship race in Phoenix, Arizona, over Veterans Race Weekend.
