MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Warrior Energy Inc. recently signed a sponsorship deal with the Keystone Motorsports team in the Nascar Nationwide Series.   

The drivers are Amber and Angela Cope, nieces of Daytona 500 winner Derrike Cope. The twins, heralded as the “first twins of NASCAR,” have been featured in Sports Illustrated magazine and have a lifetime of racing experience.

Warrior Energy is led by President and Chief Executive Officer Arthur Ebeling, Vice Presidents Chris Perkins and Brent Garrett, and Chief Operating Officer Audra Grapes.

The company’s product is an all-natural, low-calorie, tea-based energy drink that functions as an energy and recovery aid, and averts the use of artificial flavors, sweeteners and preservatives, Ebeling said.

The company offers a green tea and a white tea, and is developing a line of single-serve liquid vitamin packs for government distribution.  

The Martinsburg-based company opened in July 2009. It presented its first product in October 2009, sold out and had to raise capital to begin mass production. Mass production began in March 2011.

The company started working with the International Trade Administration under the U.S. Department of Commerce to begin international distribution, with a goal of starting exportation this summer.

In addition, Ebeling recently was named the 2011 Small Business Administration Young Entrepreneur of the Year in West Virginia. He also received other honors this year, including winning the State Journal’s Generation Next Award and being on the cover of West Virginia Executive magazine as one of the 2011 Young Guns.    

Warrior Energy, at 142 N. Queen St., suite 206 in Martinsburg, is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. It can be reached by calling 304-264-0437; sending email to; or by going to
