“As a veteran I was looking forward to racing this Memorial Day weekend at CMS. Monday of this week I had sponsor back out at the last minute, and I put out a feeler on Twitter hoping for a miracle and a few hours later I was talking to Dave Portnoy about having Barstool Sports on the truck and the rest is history;” Said McGee.
“I am very fortunate and grateful for all the companies out there like Barstool Sports that are willing to recognize and give back to the Military and support our Veterans. It is all very fitting everything was able to come together on the grand weekend of celebrating the servicemen and woman of our United States Military. As a kid I always dreamed about driving the iconic No. 3 in NASCAR, it is such surreal feeling knowing I will have the opportunity to run that number, but also be out on track competing for all my brothers and sisters in arms that made the ultimate sacrifice. For Barstool Sports and Jordan Anderson to give me this opportunity truly means a lot.”
Competing in a partial season of ARCA Menards Series — West competition in 2018 & 2019, McGee was able to capture a pair of top-ten finishes at Meridan Speedway in Meridan, Idaho and Placer County Speedway in Roseville, Calif.
McGee‘s No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado will carry primary branding from Barstool Sports and Barstool Sports Military podcast Zero Blog Thirty.
