The movement continues as POWERHOME SOLAR is excited to announce the formation of a partnership with two-time IndyCar Series champion Josef Newgarden!

Newgarden, the 2017 and 2019 IndyCar champion, will be a brand ambassador for our fast-growing solar company and will have solar panels installed on his Nashville, Tennessee, home with help from POWERHOME SOLAR. Newgarden’s YouTube Series, ADMIT1, which takes fans behind the scenes of his life and race team, will also be rebranded as part of the partnership, with the show being “Driven by POWERHOME SOLAR.” Our sponsorship of the YouTube series begins with the final race of the year this weekend in St. Petersburg, Fla.

POWERHOME SOLAR recently expanded into Tennessee in April 2020, and added a second office in the Knoxville area in September.

“POWERHOME SOLAR goes full throttle in everything we do, which is why we’re excited to partner with Josef Newgarden,” POWERHOME SOLAR CEO Jayson Waller said. “We’re also excited that he’ll be a guest on an upcoming episode of my True Underdog podcast. I can’t wait to let him share his story.”

The 29-year-old Newgarden is having an exceptional 2020, currently in second place. He trails series leader Scott Dixon by 32 points with one race remaining.

“I’m super excited to partner with the team at POWERHOME SOLAR,” Newgarden said. “We’re all about power and efficiency in racing and the team at POWERHOME SOLAR shares this same focus. Their product speaks for itself. I can’t wait to have my system installed at my home and to work with Jayson and the team to continue to build upon their tremendous success.”

Newgarden has compiled an impressive list of accomplishments since joining the IndyCar Series in 2012. Here are some his highlights:
