Jordan Anderson needs the help of NASCAR fans.

Last Saturday, Anderson’s No. 12 Chevrolet was involved in a two-truck crash on Lap 102 of the Camping World Truck Series race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Anderson’s truck, owned by Rick Ware, was badly damaged after taking a trip through the frontstretch grass and was eliminated from the race.

Now Anderson, 26, is seeking to build another truck to continue with his season. He has relaunched his website in order to raise funds. Anderson used the website during the 2016 season.

On the website, fans can help Anderson out by donating at specific monetary levels and receiving special gifts in exchange.

Similar to the websites Patreon and Kickstarter, the levels range from “Green Flag” ($20) to “Premier” ($5,000).

“Having grown up as a middle-class kid in Columbia, S.C., and wanting to one day become a NASCAR driver, I’ve had to work and fight for every opportunity that has come my way,” Anderson said on the website. “The whole reason I have been able to move from Go-Karts, to Dirt Late Models, to Daytona - has been because of their belief in me and what it is I am trying to do in a sport that I love so much. Your support means the world to this underdog; I’m looking forward to having you join the team.”
