RESTON, Va., Jan. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Leidos (NYSE:LDOS), a FORTUNE® 500 science and technology leader, announced today it will join 23XI Racing as a primary partner beginning with the 2022 season. As part of this agreement, the company will become an official sponsor of NASCAR’s Bubba Wallace and the No. 23 Toyota Camry TRD.
“We are thrilled to once again team up with Bubba Wallace and 23XI Racing,” said Leidos Chairman and CEO Roger Krone. “Bubba’s efforts have paved the way for real change, while advancing a culture of inclusion and diversity in NASCAR and across the world. We see this as much more than a sponsorship – it’s an opportunity to showcase our shared values. We are proud to have Bubba Wallace representing Leidos both on and off the track.”
“I’m pumped to partner with Leidos again,” said Bubba Wallace. “We had a great partnership when I was running Xfinity and to now have them on board our No. 23 Camry TRD and continue supporting my career and what we are doing both on and off the racetrack at 23XI is really a cool thing for me. I’m excited to have them on board for the ride.”
“Bringing Leidos back to NASCAR and continuing their relationship with Bubba is exciting as we continue to grow 23XI and move into our second year,” said 23XI Racing President Steve Lauletta. “To add a technology brand like Leidos to our lineup gives us a new platform to reach a wider audience and help continue growing both the 23XI brand and the Leidos brand.”
Leidos will appear on the No. 23 Toyota Camry TRD for its first race at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas on March 27, 2022.
