WELCOME, N.C. – World Wide Technology has extended its sponsorship agreement with Richard Petty Motorsports and driver Bubba Wallace.
As part of the extension, World Wide Technology will continue to be a primary sponsor of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by Wallace and will be a major associate sponsor throughout the upcoming Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. In addition, World Wide Technology will continue to provide Richard Petty Motorsports with data analytics, consulting and technology solutions.
“Our partnership with WWT allows us to use our own data in a way that is most useful for us,” said Wallace. “This isn’t something that is shared, but rather data that Drew (Crew Chief Drew Blickensderfer) and our engineers now use during the race weekend and the actual race itself. This season was just the beginning for WWT, and I think we are just scratching the surface of their capabilities. They are also giving us the sponsorship that we need to be better on the track– that’s something that we’re all looking forward to. They are a great company and I’m looking forward to working with WWT more in 2019.”
World Wide Technology will sponsor Wallace for multiple races, with the number of races and race dates to be announced at a later time. The No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and team will bear the World Wide Technology branding and Silicon Valley in St. Louis message.
“In a short time, we’ve seen the immediate impact World Wide Technology can make on our race program with their big data analytics,” said Brian Moffitt, chief executive officer, Richard Petty Motorsports. “Their continued partnership will have a significant impact on the performance of our race team through data analytics, application enhancements and creation of proprietary performance focused applications. We are fortunate to have WWT as a partner and they are committed to making Bubba and the No. 43 team a winner.”
“Our team at World Wide Technology is dedicated to making Wallace Jr. a winner with Richard Petty Motorsports,” said Matt Horner, senior vice president of global enterprise sales. “The partnership has energized our team to build programs that will help the team get an advantage utilizing our technology solutions. We’ve started that and now we want to continue to build and introduce new technology with the team in 2019. We’re looking forward to a great season in 2019 with Richard Petty Motorsports.”
