“Once I saw what VZillion was building and what their plans for our fans were, I had to be a part of it. To be able to not only reach my die-hard fans, but to reach NASCAR fans on a global scale is a vision I share with VZillion. As a startup, VZillion has the passion and energy needed to create some exciting opportunities in this exploding space. It is going to be great to have a place where we can work in collaboration with fans and brands and drive this to a successful finish”, said Yeley.
