Wyndham extends Petty motorsport partnership
Wyndham Destinations, the world’s largest vacation ownership and exchange company, has extended its sponsorship of Richard Petty Motorsports through 2020.
As the longest serving hospitality sponsor of the team, Wyndham Destinations will continue supporting “the King” and driver of the iconic #43 car Darrell ‘Bubba’ Wallace, Jr. for the vacation company’s 19th and 20th years as a sponsor, starting with the season opening race the Daytona 500 on 17 February.
Jeff Myers, chief sales & marketing officer, Wyndham Destinations, said: “Richard Petty is a legend in the racing world and we’re so proud to support Richard Petty Motorsports through 20 years of partnership.
“We are focused on delivering great vacation experiences to our nearly 900,000 owners every year, including the Petty family and thousands of race fans.
“As a company based in Central Florida, it’s a thrill to have our sponsorship debut each year at our hometown track, and our 3500 local associates will be cheering on Bubba Wallace to another history making finish in this year’s Daytona 500.”
Wyndham Destinations’ mission is to put the world on vacation at the company’s more than 220 vacation club resorts, the largest portfolio of timeshare properties in the world.
As an active owner with Wyndham’s vacation club resorts, Richard Petty makes it a priority to vacation with his family several times a year.
“My family and I enjoy our annual vacations with Wyndham Destinations and have for almost two decades,” he said.
“Whether it be the Ocean Walk in Daytona Beach, Wyndham Bonnet Creek, World Mark Kona or Wyndham 45 in Midtown Manhattan, we enjoy the flexibility of the points-based system from Wyndham Destinations, because it allows us the opportunity to have world class vacations anywhere in the world.”
Race fans will notice the iconic Wyndham Destinations logo, with the angled “y” representing the joy of the journey and the dot the delight of the destination, on the #43 car during this month’s Daytona 500.
