WELCOME, N.C. (May 31, 2018) - Richard Petty Motorsports (RPM) announced today, Weis Markets will be the primary sponsor of Darrell "Bubba" Wallace Jr. and the No. 43 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 team during this weekend's events at the Pocono Raceway. Eckrich, the makers of naturally hardwood smoked sausage and deli meats, will also be a partner of Wallace Jr. and the team this weekend at Pocono, Pennsylvania.
Weis Markets, based in Sunbury, Pennsylvania., operates more than 200 grocery stores in the Mid-Atlantic States. The company also offers a growing online ordering program, Weis 2 Go, which provides curbside pick-up. The service is currently offered in 79 locations.
Recognized for its great taste and quality, the Eckrich brand has a rich heritage starting from a small meat market in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Weis Markets and Eckrich partner for the return of Wallace Jr. to Pocono Raceway, the track where he made his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut one year ago. Wallace Jr. is looking forward to this weekend.
"This partnership between Eckrich and Weis Markets is perfect for race fans," said Wallace Jr. "If you live in Pennsylvania, you know all about Weis Markets and all their great food and service and how Eckrich makes great sausage for tailgating. Fans can go to Weis Markets, get some Eckrich for the grill, and come root for us at the track or during their homegating parties."
The Pocono 400 at Pocono Raceway is scheduled for this Sunday, June 3. The race will be televised live on Fox Sports 1 at 2:00 p.m. ET and broadcast on Motor Racing Network and SIRIUS/XM NASCAR Channel 90.
