STAUNTON, Va. As part
of its expanded motorsports program, Federated Auto Parts will sponsor
Roadrunner Motorsports in 2010. The agreement includes Federated’s
sponsorship of veteran NASCAR driver Jim Inglebright in two NASCAR
K&N Pro Series West races.
“We are very excited to be working
with Roadrunner Motorsports and Jim Inglebright in 2010,” said J.R.
Bishop, director of racing and event marketing for Federated Auto
Parts. “Last season, Jim won the Portland race driving the Federated
Auto Parts Chevrolet, so we are hoping for two wins from him this
season. The two races we are sponsoring will be held in areas where we
have members, so we plan on hosting two tremendous hospitality events
at those tracks for our members and their customers.”
As part of its
sponsorship, Federated will serve as the “Official Auto Parts Supplier”
to Roadrunner Motorsports and sponsor Inglebright when he races June 19
in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West Sonoma 200 at the Infineon
Raceway in Sonoma, Calif., and July 18 at the NASCAR K&N Pro Series
West 125 at the Portland International Speedway. Last season,
Inglebright was victorious in Portland in front of an enthusiastic
group of Federated customers and guests.
