Federated Auto Parts has entered a multi-year agreement to sponsor the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car work area, select events and serve as title sponsor for DIRTcar Nationals.
The iconic auto parts brand will commence its new partnerships in 2023 with the 52nd DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park, Feb. 6-18, which will feature the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars, Feb. 9-11.
“We’re excited to partner with a leading motorsports event and series as we continue to grow our support in the dirt racing community,” said J.R. Bishop, director of event marketing & member services, Federated Auto Parts. “The World of Outlaws and DIRTcar have one of the most passionate fanbases with many already being loyal customers of ours. This will be a great opportunity to build and expand upon those relationships.”
For every World of Outlaws Sprint Car race, throughout the 87-race season, spanning from February to November, the work area will be known as the Federated Car Care Work Zone. Not only is the work zone a key element to every race, giving drivers and teams a space to work on their cars during a race, it also is one of the best representations of camaraderie in the sport. No matter the car, fans always see several teams pitch in and share parts to help with any issue.
The Federated Auto Parts DIRTcar Nationals will showcase two weeks of racing with seven different series and five drivers earning the prestigious Big Gator Championship. Week one will see racing for the DIRTcar UMP Modifieds, All Star Circuit of Champions and World of Outlaws Sprint Cars. Then, week two will have USAC Non-Wing Sprint Cars, DIRTcar Late Models, Super DIRTcar Series Big Block Modifieds and World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Models. Federated Auto Parts will also serve as the title sponsor of four World of Outlaws Sprint Car events, which will be announced at a later date.
“Federated Auto Parts has been a staple in dirt racing and motorsports for generations, so it is exciting to have them become a direct partner with DIRTcar Nationals and the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars,” World of Outlaws CEO Brian Carter said. “I know their partnership and dedication to the sport will help further enhance the event and series.”
