WELCOME, N.C. – Richard Petty Motorsports has announced the extension of its sponsorship agreement with WIX Filters, a global manufacturer of filtration products.
WIX Filters will remain as the team’s official filter and will continue as a key technical partner. WIX Filters will supply Richard Petty Motorsports with filtration products and will also provide development support to the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by Bubba Wallace in the elite Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
As part of the partnership, WIX Filters will continue its technical support of Richard Petty Motorsports and their ECR Engines by supplying air and oil filters. The team will use WIX Filters to guard their ECR Engines from contaminants like dirt, grime and dust at the track.
“WIX Filters’ motorsports history started over six decades ago when we supplied racing legend Richard Petty with filters for his stock car engines,” Jennifer Gibson, brand manager for WIX Filters, said. “We are excited about a partnership of two iconic brands in the racing industry and look forward to equipping the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with the filters it needs to land “Bubba” Wallace in the winner’s circle.”
WIX Filters will have brand identification beneath the hood of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. In addition, the logo will be featured on the b-post of the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, as well as on team equipment, the transporter, and the driver and pit crew suits for the entire Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.
“We began racing with WIX Filters in the 1960s, and generations of our drivers have driven to victory lane with WIX,” Richard Petty, owner of Richard Petty Motorsports, said. “We are proud to continue our association with the No. 1 filter in motorsports and we look forward to accomplishing even more in 2019.”
