Welcome, N.C. – May 31, 2019 – World Wide Technology (WWT), a market-leading technology solutions provider, in collaboration with Victory Junction, a camp committed to enriching the lives of children with chronic medical conditions and serious illnesses, today announced a special collaboration. Through a leadership donation to Victory Junction made by WWT Founder and Chairman David Steward and his family, Victory Junction will sponsor NASCAR driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. and the Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) No. 43 Camaro ZL1.
Wallace will drive the Victory Junction car in select races during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS) in 2019. Victory Junction will retain the typical sponsor benefits granted by driving teams, to be used for the benefit of their campers. More importantly, WWT’s support of Victory Junction provides the camp with a profound cause-driven opportunity to raise awareness and funds for their mission to provide life-changing camp experiences. The relationship also brings exciting opportunities for a key partnership with Wallace and RPM.
From the moment Wallace first spent time at Victory Junction in 2015, the smiles and laughter heard throughout the lush 84 acres in the rolling hills of Randleman, N.C. left an indelible mark and impact on the Mobile, Ala. native. “Victory Junction not only gives opportunities to children that have boundaries in their lives – it gives them a chance to be a kid,” said Wallace. “It’s just an incredible place.”
“NASCAR fans connect with drivers like Bubba and the causes they care about, so we’re excited for this opportunity to partner with Bubba Wallace, WWT and RPM,” said Chad Coltrane, Victory Junction president and CEO. “Thanks to the generosity of the Steward family and WWT, we’ll be able to share the message of how Victory Junction helps children living with serious illnesses and medical conditions, and how fans can support that mission.”
“The Steward family is blessed to support Victory Junction and their amazing work empowering kids with serious illnesses,” said David Steward II, Polarity, Ltd. CEO. “Given our family’s shared values with Bubba, the Petty family and Victory Junction leadership, this partnership is a natural fit. We are grateful for the opportunity to make a meaningful impact in the lives of the Victory Junction kids and their families. Together, we will show a global audience that diversity in all its forms is important.”
The partnership with RPM will commence at the Pocono (Pa.) Raceway this Sunday, June 2, and the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will feature a colorful Victory Junction paint scheme. Wallace made his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut, and his first appearance as a driver at RPM, at the 2.5-mile “Tricky Triangle” on June 11, 2017.
