RICHARD PETTY MOTORSPORTS
Freightliner, North America's leading manufacturer of medium, heavy-duty diesel and specialized chassis trucks, is one of the most recognizable and respected names in the industry. The Freightliner motto, "Run Smart," reflects its steadfast commitment to design, performance, and safety. Freightliner is the best-selling brand of Class 8 trucks in North America, because their reliability, solid warranties, and strong customer support have built a loyal customer base. A division of Daimler Trucks North America, Freightliner is headquartered in Portland, Oregon and employs approximately 24,000 (2007).
Freightliner is proud to be the "Official Hauler of NASCAR," a partnership that began in 2006. The new Freightliner Coronado pulls all NASCAR trailers, and these trucks are equipped with a Victory Lane Edition package. Melissa Clausen, director of product marketing at Freightliner Trucks said of the company's continued NASCAR partnership, "NASCAR continues to allow us to showcase our trucks and equipment to a nationwide group of loyal NASCAR fans, as well as directly to our customer base who love the sport." Through this partnership, Freightliner continues its "Run Smart Hauler Challenge," which is a timed skills test for hauler drivers that showcases their safety and effectiveness.
Freightliner is proud partner of Richard Petty Motorsports. "The King" has joined forces with Freightliner to support the Paralyzed Veterans of America through Mid-America Truck Shows and special events such as autograph signing sessions with Petty and raffle tickets to win a 1946 World War II CJ-2A Willy's Jeep restored by Petty's Garage.
