Richmond, V.A. (April 27, 2017) – JES Foundation Repair (JES), a subsidiary of JES Companies, the nation’s largest foundation repair company, announces a pass-through partnership with Fifth Third Bank to capitalize on the economic engine and marketing platform in Richmond this weekend with NASCAR. Through this unique motorsports pass-through rights program with Fifth Third Bank, JES will be able to tap into the loyal NASCAR fan base at the Toyota Owners 400 to promote its brand and services in impactful, new ways.
“Fifth Third selected the Richmond market to launch its ‘Fueled by Fifth Third Bank’ pass-through program because of Richmond’s rich history with NASCAR and a robust business environment that could benefit from the program,” notes David Morton, Managing Director of Fifth Third Bank Motorsports. “JES Foundation Repair, an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Company, was a natural fit for the partnership given its growing presence and reputation in Virginia, and the relevance, quality and value of their services for NASCAR fans.”
Matt Malone, CEO and Owner of JES Companies, adds, “Fifth Third’s holistic, strategic approach to our relationship goes beyond traditional banking. They bring fresh ideas and creative solutions to the conversation, such as the pass-through program, which helps us grow our business. We are thrilled to be able to leverage their investment in the sport with Roush Fenway Racing and Richmond International Raceway to harness the power of NASCAR to drive more business.”
The Fifth Third Richmond team, spearheaded by Bob Bennett, SVP of Commercial Banking, collaborated with JES to give them access to a number of exclusive race assets. The JES logo will be prominently displayed on the decklid of the Roush Fenway Racing No. 17 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup car driven by two-time NASCAR XFINITY series, Ricky Stenhouse Jr. during the Toyota Owners 400 race on April 30, 2017.
