For Immediate Release

Mooresville, NC (October 9, 2018) – Wendell Chavous made an announcement via FaceBook and Twitter this past Monday morning stating that he will step away from NASCAR competition indefinitely following this weekend’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ‘Fr8Auctions 250’ at Talladega Superspeedway. Sobriety Nation, Chavous’ primary sponsor since the beginning of the 2018 season wishes him well and respects his decisions for leaving. Sobriety Nation will remain the primary sponsor of the Premium Motorsports #49 Chevy Silverado until the end of the 2018 season.

“This was a hard decision to make and it took me a long time to get there but I know it’s the right thing to do at this time. I want to be there for my family and I want to watch my son grow up and help him develop his racing career. He’s really good for a 4-year-old! Plus, my business (Steel Barn & Truss) is doing very well and I’m grateful for it but I need to give it my full attention moving forward. I don’t want to say I’ll never be back because we all know how that goes, once bitten by the racing bug you find a way to come back (laughs) so I’m not saying it’s forever but for now I have to do what’s right for me and my family.” – Wendell Chavous

“We are so proud of how Wendell has represented Sobriety Nation both on and off the track. Wendell is a man of humility and integrity. We admire Wendell for making the difficult decision to put his family and business before his own desires to race professionally. Wendell Chavous will always be a winner in our eyes!”- Joe Testino, President Sobriety Nation
