“Hoker Trucking is excited to partner with the Patrick Emerling team for the HyVee Perks 250 at Iowa Speedway,” said Hoker Trucking owner Jeff Hoker. “This will be our first time sponsoring an Xfinity Series driver, and we are excited to be part of such a great event on a track in our home state of Iowa.”

“I’m stoked to be able to race at Iowa this weekend in front of a sold-out crowd! It’s a cool track, and with my roots in modified racing, I love short tracks,” said Emerling. “I have a great partner this weekend in Hoker Trucking. They’re big supporters of local racing, so it’s exciting to bring them into the top tiers of NASCAR.”
