CONCORD, N.C. -- Trackhouse Racing today announced that Florida Coast Equipment will join the organization as an associate partner on the No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE, driven by Ross Chastain.
The West Palm Beach, Florida company will have a significant presence at the NASCAR Cup Series races at Daytona International Speedway on Aug. 27 and the Oct. 23 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
Chastain, 29, a native of Alva, Fla. has won twice in the 2022 Cup season and is battling for the points lead.
The eighth-generation watermelon farmer said home state support is important to him.
"Florida Coast equipment has great equipment and a great reputation and we can't wait for them to help us out on the farm," Chastain said. "Watermelon farming is grueling, tough work. We all know about the heat and humidity of Florida so we need reliable machinery to grow our crop and keep the farm going."
Florida Coast Equipment joins Altamonte Springs' AdventHealth as Florida-based partners at Chastain's Trackhouse Racing organization.
“Florida Coast Equipment’s customers expect only the best from our team,” said Todd Bachman, president of Florida Coast Equipment. "Ross Chastain and Trackhouse racing are one of the most exciting teams in NASCAR and it was a no-brainer for us to join their team.”

About Trackhouse Racing:
After retiring from a driving career in NASCAR and sports cars, Justin Marks created Trackhouse Entertainment Group in 2020 with the goal of creating a racing brand that transcends the sport. The Nashville, Tennessee company formed Trackhouse Racing that took to the track in 2021 with Daniel Suárez behind the wheel. In January 2021, the team announced a partnership with international superstar entertainer Pitbull who has been a frequent guest at NASCAR races and elevated Trackhouse’s presence through inclusion in several of his songs and music videos over the last two years. Midway through the 2021 season, Trackhouse Racing purchased the NASCAR assets of Chip Ganassi Racing and began the 2022 season as its own two-car team with Suárez and Ross Chastain as drivers. Chastain gave the organization its first victory at Circuit of the Americas in Austin Texas on March 27 and won again at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on April 24.
