We are hoping Johnny can win the Championship

As the last NASCAR race weekend approaches, the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series point race has come down to the final race of the season. When the checkered flag flies at the end of next week’s Ford 200 at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, Mud Jug Portable Spittoons is hoping Johnny Sauter can pull win the Championship. Just 20 points out of the lead spot, the wiley veteran knows it’s the difference between a good day for one team and a bad one for another. Says Sauter, “I’ve said all year – the new points system plus all the competition this year, it would all come down to Homestead. I’m hoping to be like the 1992 Winston Cup championship run of Alan Kulwicki – taking it down to the last lap of the last race. We can definitely still win the championship”. Mud Jug will have the associate sponsorship spot on the No.13 truck, owned by Sandusky, Ohio-based ThorSport Racing.

“We are hoping Johnny Sauter can win the Championship. If anyone can come back from a 20 point deficit, it’s Johnny" said Mud Jug's owner Darcy Compton. "We believe our product is tailor-made for the NASCAR fan-base, and what better way to get involved with the sport than with a team that is battling for the NCWTS Championship”.

We’re hoping to help get them to Victory Lane at Homestead”.
