Transportation Impact to Sponsor Wallace, RPM at Kansas

By Seth Eggert, Staff Writer

For the fourth time this season, Richard Petty Motorsports driver Bubba Wallace will have a new sponsor to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. Transportation Impact will adorn the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway.

Transportation Impact joins Click n’ Close, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, and World Wide Technology as sponsors of the NASCAR’s Premier Series team. In the debut race for Click n’ Close, the team finished runner-up in the Daytona 500.

Across NASCAR’s three National Series, Wallace has six starts at Kansas Speedway. His best finish at the 1.5-mile track, seventh, came in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2013. In the Cup Series, Wallace has one start at the track earlier this season, where he finished 23rd, five laps down.

Transportation Impact co-founders Travis Burt and Keith Byrd spoke highly of their partnership with one of NASCAR’s most iconic teams.

“This is a huge opportunity for our company,” said Byrd. “Richard Petty Motorsports is one of the most respected brands in racing, and we are very proud to support them this weekend. As a business owner, I want my company to be the best, but not at the cost of integrity, and the Petty team operate on the same principle. It’s an honor to be associated with Richard Petty and the virtues of character, sincerity, and candor.”

“We have an amazing relationship with the Petty family and love to be part of NASCAR with them,” added Burt. “Bubba has been one of NASCAR’s fastest-rising stars the sport and that aligns with our fast growth as a company. There is no better time than to be with Richard Petty Motorsports.”

Transportation Impact was founded in 2008. Through its’ proprietary technology, the North Carolina-based company saves customers an average of 15% on shipping small packages and  LTL rates.

The Hollywood Casino 400 is the final race of the Round of 12 for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. Although Wallace is not a part of the Playoff Grid, he will have the chance to assume the role of Playoff Spoiler on Sunday, October 21.
