Carquest, Worldpac to sponsor Riggs, No. 92 Chevy at Chicagoland
After a 12-year separation, Carquest is reuniting with driver Scott Riggs in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS).
Carquest, along with sister company Worldpac, will serve as primary sponsors for the Ricky Benton Racing (RBR) Enterprises No. 92 Chevrolet Silverado in Friday's EnjoyIllinois.com 225 from Chicagoland Speedway.
Carquest and World Pac will also be on the No. 92 at Texas Motor Speedway in November.
"We had some great success with Carquest on the truck during my first stint in the series," said Riggs. "I'm looking forward to duplicating that success at Chicago and Texas. This team has made some great strides in our overall program this year and I think we can end 2013 on a high note."
In addition to Chicago and Texas, the team plans to run Martinsville in October, a race in which Riggs piloted the No. 92 to a fifth-place finish in 2012.
"We couldn't be more excited to have Carquest and World Pac on the truck for Chicago and Texas and to have Scott back behind the wheel," said Ricky Benton, owner of RBR Enterprises and BTS Tire and Wheel Distributors, which will serve as an associate sponsor this week. "They have served as great partners and suppliers in our core business (at BTS Tire and Wheel Distributors) and I can't wait to go racing with them."
Goodyear FleetHQ will also be on the truck as an associate sponsor.
The EnjoyIllinois.com 225 will be RBR Enterprises' seventh attempt of 2013. Scott Riggs has starts at Daytona, Martinsville, Charlotte and Kentucky. Clay Rogers drove the truck at Rockingham in April, with Matt McCall driving the truck at Bristol last month.
The team's best finish of 2013 was an 11th-place run at Charlotte with Riggs behind the wheel.
After Bristol, the team plans to return to the NCWTS at Chicagoland with Riggs back behind the wheel.
