SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The Independence Bowl seems to have found a new sponsor, according to Camping World CEO Marcus Lemonis.

On July 4, Lemonis tweeted:

Very excited to announce that @CampingWorld will be sponsoring the #independencebowl @theACC @SEC @ESPNCFB #campingworldindepencebowl

Camping World is a major retail company that sells camping supplies, as well as parts for recreational vehicles.  The company is also the title sponsor for the NASCAR Camping World East Series, West Series and Truck Series.

After KSLA News 12 Sports retweeted Lemonis' Twitter announcement regarding the sponsorship, Lemonis replied to the tweet, "We will be there."

Independence Bowl Foundation Executive Director Missy Setters would not fully confirm Lemonis' announcement Thursday night, but released a very brief statement to KSLA News 12:

"We hope to have an announcement regarding our title sponsor soon."

Camping World would become the Independence Bowl's 7th title sponsor after Duck Commander announced it was pulling out as the Bowl's sponsor back in March.
