DALLAS — Freight shipper Worldwide Express and Richmond Raceway have partnered on the entitlement of the summer NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoff race on Saturday, Aug. 13. The official name of the first-ever Camping World Truck Series Playoff race at America’s Premier Short Track will be the Worldwide Express 250 for Carrier Appreciation.
“We welcome Worldwide Express for their first entitlement partnership in NASCAR with the Worldwide Express 250 for Carrier Appreciation NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Playoff race at Richmond Raceway,” Lori Collier Waran, Richmond Raceway president, said. “As Worldwide Express continues to grow its presence in NASCAR as part of its 30th anniversary, we look forward to introducing their brand as part of the iconic fan experience at America’s Premier Short Track.”
“As we deepen our relationship with NASCAR and work toward further involvement in the sport, we are excited to put our name on the race in Richmond,” Worldwide Express President Rob Rose said. “Our CEO Tom Madine and I both have ties to Virginia and many of our carrier partners have their homebase in the region, so the entitlement just makes good sense for us. The logistics and supply chain world have been chaotic the past year and our business wouldn’t be possible without those carriers, so this is a unique opportunity to say thank you to them leading up to and during the race.”
Through its WWEX Racing program, Worldwide Express, along with its sister brands GlobalTranz and Unishippers, earlier this year announced a multi-year partnership with Trackhouse Racing as a primary sponsor on the No. 1 driven by Ross Chastain and No. 99 driven by Daniel Suarez.
The brands also serve as the full-season, primary partner with Niece Motorsports on the No. 40 driven by Dean Thompson, the No. 41 driven by Ross Chastain for four Camping World Truck Series races and the No. 42 driven by Carson Hocevar in eight Camping World Truck Series races, which includes the Worldwide Express 250 for Carrier Appreciation at Richmond Raceway.
