NAPA Auto Parts has expanded its involvement in New Zealand motorsport by securing naming rights of the New Zealand Super Trucks.

The NAPA Auto Parts NZ Super Trucks is one of the most exhilarating series in the country, with big road beasts that are generally reserved for hauling freight up and down the country transformed into pure racing machines.

The likes of Kenworth, Mack and Freightliner are all represented, hitting the track to the delight of the fans.

“NAPA Auto Parts is very proud to be supporting Truck Racing in NZ,” said Tony Walker, GM of sSales & oOperations at NAPA NZ.

“It is a natural extension of our connection with the commercial supply sector in NZ, and what an awesome series to be involved with,” he said.

“We are really pleased to be in a position to leverage our Global NAPA Racing to invest locally and support a great series in times like this.”

Dave West, president of Truck Racing Association New Zealand, said he is delighted to have a brand like NAPA show interest and drive awareness of the Super Trucks.

“As we hit the halfway point in our championship, we are excited to welcome NAPA Auto Parts as the naming rights sponsor for the remainder of the season,” he said.

“The points are close with the top runners having some misfortune in the previous two meetings. We are looking forward to the next two weeks racing in the NAPA Auto Parts NZ Super Truck Racing Championship.”
