Akinori Ogata, ENEOS Return to NASCAR Truck Series at Phoenix


Nov 12, 2015

(November 11, 2015) -- Kanagawa, Japan's Akinori Ogata will compete in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race this Friday, Nov. 13 for MB Motorsports. ENEOS, a brand of JX Nippon Oil & Energy, will be the primary partner on Ogata's No. 63 Chevrolet Silverado at Phoenix International Raceway.

ENEOS, Japan's largest oil company, first partnered with Ogata in 2012 in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series.

"I'm grateful that ENEOS is joining me for this weekend's race in Phoenix," said Ogata. "They have been a tremendous partner for my development in NASCAR, and this will be an exciting next step."

This will mark Ogata's third NASCAR Truck Series start this season, following races at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway. At New Hampshire - like Phoenix, a mile-long racetrack - Ogata drove his ENEOS Chevrolet to an 18th-place finish out of 32 trucks.

Ogata, a former Motocross racer, began his assimilation to American Stock Car racing in 2003, driving Late Model Stock Cars at North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway. He continued in Late Models after moving to the United States in 2010, and later graduated to the NASCAR's K&N Pro Series East, where he competed in 12 races over three years, scoring five top-20 finishes.
