TALLADEGA, AL — Shawn Magee, owner of Shawn Magee Design (SMD) will wave the green flag to start the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoff race, Fr8Auctions 250 on Saturday, October 13th at Talladega Superspeedway.
“I’m honored that Fr8Auctions asked me to bring the field to green on Saturday,” Magee said. “This will be an experience to remember. I look forward to what the future holds for SMD and Fr8Auctions!”
Fr8Auctions owner, Marcus Barela will serve as the Grand Marshall for the Fr8Auctions 250.
“Talladega Superspeedway has provided Fr8Auctions the best return on investment in track marketing with the Fr8Auctions Qualifying sponsorship in the spring,” Barela said. “We are thrilled to partner again with Talladega for the Fr8Auctions 250!”
As the official graphics partner of Fr8Auctions, SMD worked with Fr8Auctions to craft the Fr8Auctions 250 logo, which can be found all over the track from the infield grass, pit road banners, victory lane backdrops, stage banners and other marketing materials. The new race logo was a spin off from the Monster Energy Cup Series qualifying event last April in Talladega where Fr8Auctions served as the qualifying sponsor.
You can find SMD’s work in all 3 NASCAR series in the form of special commemorative race logos, hero cards, social graphics and race car wrap designs.

The Fr8Auctions 250, set for a noon (CDT) start, will play a pivotal part in the NCWTS Playoffs, which will serve as the final race in the Round of 8 where the field of eligible title contenders will be trimmed from eight to six at the checkered flag. The eight drivers are comprised of Alabama’s own Grant Enfinger (from Fairhope), Justin Haley, Johnny Sauter, Noah Gragson, Brett Moffitt, Matt Crafton, Ben Rhodes and Stewart Friesen. Part-time NCWTS driver Parker Kligerman, the defending Fr8Auctions 250 victor, hopes to be a spoiler in that event and become the first driver in history to win three NCWTS races at the legendary 2.66-mile venue.
Talladega Superspeedway’s doubleheader NASCAR Playoff weekend kicks off on Friday (Oct. 12) with qualifying for the Fr8Auctions 250 at 4:35 p.m. CDT.
