WELCOME, N.C. – E.E. Ward Moving & Storage has been named the official mover of Richard Petty Motorsports and will be an associate sponsor of the team and Darrell Wallace Jr. in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
E.E. Ward Moving & Storage previously worked with Richard Petty Motorsports when the organization moved from Mooresville, N.C., to its new home in Welcome, N.C.
“It’s not easy to move a race team once, but to do it twice, you need people you can trust,” said Richard Petty, co-owner of Richard Petty Motorsports. “E.E. Ward did such a good job the first time we knew they had to move us again. Once again, they delivered great service and we didn’t miss a beat.”
The No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by Wallace will sport a nostalgic E.E. Ward logo beginning this weekend at Atlanta Motor Speedway to celebrate Black History Month.
“E.E. Ward is the oldest continuously operating black-owned business in the United States,” said E.E. Ward co-owner Dominique Brooks. “We’ve made our own history and it’s thrilling to see the team at Richard Petty Motorsports and Darrell Wallace Jr. making their own in NASCAR. Darrell is a trailblazer who is bringing energy and diversity into the sport. We encourage and celebrate his efforts.”
Starting with just two helpers, a team of horses and a wagon, E.E. Ward has grown over the last 137 years into a multi-million-dollar moving business.
“To not only be selected once, but now a second time, to move Richard Petty Motorsports is a validation of the hard work and excellent service the E.E. Ward team provides to our customers on a consistent basis,” added E.E. Ward co-owner Brian Brooks. “This is an amazing opportunity for two great legacies, RPM and E.E. Ward to work hand-in-hand. We also stand firmly by the efforts of Bubba and the diversity he brings to NASCAR.”
