Morgan & Morgan, America’s largest personal injury law firm, will be the official sponsor of pro driver Chris Hacker for the upcoming NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Rackley Roofing 200 race at Nashville (Tennessee) Superspeedway in Lebanon, Tennessee on June 24th.

Chris Hacker is the first NASCAR driver known to have had a birth injury to the brachial plexus that limits movement of his left arm. Brachial plexus injuries occur when a baby’s neck is stretched to one side during birth, damaging the network of nerves that control the muscles from the shoulder to the fingers.

The injury can result in loss of function, loss of feeling, and complete paralysis of the upper arm. After three major surgeries, including nerve transplants and tendon transfers, Hacker has gained enough mobility in his arm to race.

“Chris is an incredible young man who has overcome many obstacles to achieve his dreams and we are proud to help make his dream a reality,” said John Morgan, Founder of Morgan & Morgan.

“Morgan & Morgan’s mission, For The People, was inspired by my brother Tim, who was left paralyzed in a tragic accident. Chris and Tim’s experiences are the stories of countless Americans.

“Every day, our attorneys give clients a fighting chance to seek justice, get the compensation they deserve, and have the opportunity to keep their injuries from dictating the rest of their lives.”

Hacker began his racing career at the age of eight with the Quarter Midgets. He quickly rose to Bandolero, where he won two state championships, and then to INEX Legend Cars, where he won the Indianapolis Speedrome Championship in the Young Lions category.

At the age of 13, he became the youngest driver ever to win a Champion Racing Association event. After an unfortunate accident in 2015 that required costly auto repairs, Hacker’s dream of becoming a NASCAR driver seemed unattainable.

It was then that his parents informed him that they had sought justice for the medical malpractice that contributed to his birth injury and that he had settlement funds from the injury, which he would acquire when he turned 18.

With the funds from his settlement, Hacker was able to make the necessary repairs and modifications to his car and jump-start his racing career. He made his Camping World Truck Series debut on August 20, 2021 at the World Wide Technology Raceway in Gateway in the Toyota 200.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to work with Morgan & Morgan,” said Chris Hacker. “The work they do every day to fight for families and children affected by birth injuries is life changing. I suffered this injury in the first few minutes of my life and if my parents hadn’t worked to take on this responsibility I would have been limited by it my whole life.

“Without lawyers like Morgan & Morgan, I couldn’t live my dream as a racing driver.”

As part of the partnership, Hacker’s Reaume Brothers racing truck will be decked out in Morgan & Morgan branding with founder John Morgan and will be dressed in a branded firefighter suit in the company’s blue and yellow color scheme at Nashville Superspeedway.

The Rackley Roofing 200 (150 laps | 199.5 miles) is the 13th of 23 races in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on the 2022 schedule. Practice begins Friday, June 24, 2022 from 3:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m . Qualifying follows immediately from 3:30 p.m. The 36-strong field will go green just after 7:00 p.m. (8:00 p.m. ET) later in the day with live coverage on FOX Sports 1 (FS1), the Motor Racing Network (radio) and SiriusXM NASCAR Channel 90.
