BDR confirms departure of Caterpillar as sponsor

Bill Davis Racing (BDR) announced today that Caterpillar, the team’s sponsor for the past 10 seasons, will not return as primary sponsor of the No. 22 Bill Davis Racing team following the conclusion of the 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.

“Caterpillar and Bill Davis Racing have enjoyed a long and successful partnership throughout the last 10 seasons, and we are proud of everything we’ve accomplished together, including wins in both the Daytona 500 and Southern 500," stated Team Owner Bill Davis. “This is an exciting time for our team, and we are looking forward to the future."

The No. 22 Bill Davis Racing team continues to impress on the track, and the team remains in the 29th spot in the Sprint Cup Series Owners’ point standings. The team, led by veteran crew chief Tommy Baldwin, picked up 10 championship point positions over the course of five events and has posted two top-10 finishes and six finishes of 22nd or better in the past eight races.

An announcement regarding the second Bill Davis Racing car for 2009, the No. 23 Sprint Cup Toyota, will take place in the coming weeks. See related rumor
