Lt. Iwuji, US Naval Officer and Race Car Driver Lands Big Sponsor for Daytona and Beyond
In a sport that has the reputation for supporting our nation’s military, the excitement is palpable as the first ever Naval Academy graduate, Lt. Jesse Iwuji, prepares to debut in the ARCA racing series at Daytona International Speedway.

Lt. Iwuji, who is understandably invested in promoting brands that support our military, is particularly proud to team with BBMC Mortgage who is helping propel his dream of moving from Navy to NASCAR. BBMC Mortgage is a full-service lending company that specializes in VA loans and supports Veterans with a monetary donation on every qualified closed loan.

Iwuji states “I am honored to represent a company that is so focused on giving back and serving members of the military.”

To add to the frenzy of activity surrounding Lt. Iwuji’s debut at Daytona on February 10th, the US Navy will be filming a special piece on Lt. Iwuji being “forged by the sea.” The special will be featured on NAVY.com in the coming months.

“I am so thankful for my time at the Naval Academy” says Lt. Iwuji. “It was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Also, my time spent playing football for Navy and serving our country taught me the priceless lessons of teamwork and trust - all skills that will translate well into my racing journey.”


For their part, BBMC Mortgage couldn’t be prouder to be teaming up with Lt. Iwuji.

Todd Jones, president of BBMC, said, “Jesse represents all that is best in our great country and he particularly demonstrates the values that BBMC Mortgage holds dearest: commitment to excellence, service to our great nation, professional composure, attention to detail, and commitment to speed. BBMC Mortgage believes this team is going to change the face of racing, grant greater access to the American Dream of Homeownership to millions of racing fans through outstanding execution of our mortgage products, and, in the process, care for our veterans better than any team or company in America.”

“This partnership is so authentic and full of great synergy,” says Matt Casto, President of The Sports Agency. It is a great honor to come alongside both parties as we embark on this exciting journey together.”

You might have noticed Jesse is sporting a different racing number than you have regularly seen him with. Patriot Motorsports Group has partnered with Darrell Basham Racing to help DBR keep their points up in the points standing this year. DBR has competed in ARCA since 1972 and the #34 will continue to live on in the series with Patriot Motorsports Group taking the helm for some races this year.

Iwuji later.
