Transportation Impact to sponsor Richard Petty Motorsports in Miami

Emerald Isle, N.C. (November 13, 2018) —

Transportation Impact (TI) announced today it will serve as the primary sponsor of Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) and the No 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by Bubba Wallace in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at the Miami Speedway on Sunday, November 18. The sponsorship continues the relationship by the Crystal Coast-headquartered parcel spend management firm with RPM.

One of the fastest-growing companies in North Carolina, TI has experienced robust growth since its 2008 founding, by helping high-volume parcel shippers reduce cost through innovative audit and negotiation services.

TI co-founders Keith Byrd and Travis Burt are thrilled by the opportunity to further strengthen the company’s long-time partnership with RPM.

“It was a great experience sponsoring Wallace Jr. in Kansas City last month, and we’re looking forward to being part of the team again,” said Burt. “As well as associating us with one of the most respected brands in racing, the sponsorship is a wonderful opportunity for us to give some of our most valued clients the experience of being trackside and meeting Richard Petty, “The King” himself. That’s something that doesn’t happen to people every day.”

The Ford EcoBoost 400 will air Sunday, November 18, at 2:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
