DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Wayne Taylor Racing has added two new sponsors in advance of the season-opening Rolex 24 at Daytona Int’l Speedway.

North Carolina-based AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection and CIT, a leading national bank empowering businesses and personal savers, have joined the team as a sponsor of the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R.

CIT leverages its expertise in equipment financing and vendor programs to provide Konica Minolta and its customers with the financing they need for office imaging products and services.

“We are proud to associate the excitement of racing with CIT’s reputation for speed, precision and agility in helping customers navigate their financial goals,” said Mike Jones, president of CIT’s Business Capital division. “We value our longstanding and successful relationship with Konica Minolta and look forward to a thrilling season of racing ahead.”

AMETEK Electronic Systems Protection, with its ESP and SurgeX brands, and the company’s Illinois-based subsidiary Powervar, are leading global providers of advanced power protection.

“We are excited to partner with the prestigious Wayne Taylor Racing team and the Konica Minolta Cadillac family of partnerships for the 2019 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season,” said Dave Perrotta, Vice President Business Unit Manager for AMETEK ESP Powervar. “At AMETEK, we have a wide variety of brands and product solutions that have grown based on our successful relationships with customers and business partners. We truly believe that the relationship with WTR, IMSA, and Konica Minolta will provide many new business-to-business opportunities for our organization. The No. 10 team’s success and commitment to excellence is mirrored by the same at AMETEK, and we are excited about what the future holds.”
