CONCORD, N.C. – TMS Titanium and Hendrick Motorsports have entered into a partnership as part of TMS Titanium’s commitment to providing continued support in the auto racing industry. Through the relationship, TMS will be a product sponsor of the 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions for the remainder of the 2014 season and the 2015 season to come.
Through the new partnership, TMS will provide Hendrick Motorsports access to its industry-leading products and knowledge base. Titanium is a highly sought after material in the auto racing industry due to its strength, light weight and durability with outstanding heat and corrosion resistance.
“We are excited to be partnering with Hendrick Motorsports, one of the top teams in NASCAR,” said James Hostetler, senior vice president at TMS Titanium. “They have been customers of ours for a long time, and we have been huge fans for even longer. We hope our titanium can continue to provide a competitive edge for the Hendrick Motorsports teams. TMS has a passion for racing and will continue to show its support and commitment to moving the industry forward.”
Hendrick Motorsports, which currently leads the Sprint Cup Series with six race wins in 2014, utilizes titanium in the manufacturing of its race cars and engines.
“We’ve enjoyed a terrific relationship with TMS Titanium for many years,” said Doug Duchardt, general manager of Hendrick Motorsports. “It’s exciting that they’ve recognized the opportunities our industry provides and see significant value in growing the relationship. The products and services offered by the TMS team directly impact the cars and engines we put on the racetrack, and we look forward to working together even more closely to build a winning program.”
