TC Daily Pit Stop: Byron Lands New Sponsor for Martinsville; Parsons Tapped to Drive Rackley WAR 25 at Phoenix; Friday TV Schedule
TC Daily Pit Stop: Friday, October 19th, 2023
William Byron has enjoyed the best season of his young NASCAR Cup Series career in 2023, and he’ll carry a new primary sponsorship partner into the penultimate race of the season at Martinsville Speedway. PODS Moving and Storage will bring its red, white, and blue colors to the No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
The 25-year-old driver, who has earned a series-best six wins this season, is excited to have the PODS brand on his race car.
“It’s awesome to have PODS come on board for such an important race,” Byron said. “PODS is a nationally known company, and to have their support in our team is so cool. Hopefully we have a good race and can help bring awareness to PODS as well as their initiatives.”
Stefan Parsons will have possibly the most competitive ride of his NASCAR National Series career as he’ll pilot the No. 25 Chevrolet Silverado for Rackley W.A.R. in the 2023 NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series season finale at Phoenix Raceway.
The team made the announcement in a press release, which was shared on Thursday morning. Parsons says he’s been rendered nearly speechless at the opportunity to drive a truck, which made it into the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Playoffs this season.
“It’s hard to put into words what this opportunity means to me,” said Parsons. “Curtis [Sutton, co-owner] and Willie, along with Chad [Kendrick, Crew Chief] and the entire team have built a winning playoff-caliber organization,” Parsons said in the team’s press release. “I’m honored to climb behind the wheel of the No. 25 Chevrolet Silverado and represent the Rackley Roofing and W.A.R. Shocks brands at Phoenix Raceway.”
