Propper International Sponsors Richard Petty Driving Experience

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

St. Charles, MO — Leading military uniform and tactical gear company Propper International has joined the ranks of NASCAR sponsors with a one-year partnership with Richard Petty Driving Experience. In addition to providing apparel and gear to Richard Petty Driving Experience staff, Propper has wrapped one of the RPDE racecars in its company colors and logo, with the number 50 on the sides and top in honor of Propper’s 50th anniversary.

Started in 1967, Propper’s first military contract provided the iconic white Dixie Cup caps to the United States Navy. Over the next five decades, the company grew to become the country’s largest supplier of BDUs and ACUs to the US military. In 1991, Propper branched out into the commercial market to provide tactical gear and apparel to law enforcement personnel and civilians.

“NASCAR has a long history of supporting and honoring the men and women who fight for our freedom,” said John Negrau, VP, Marketing & eCommerce for Propper. “Our military heritage was a perfect complement to the mission of both organizations.”

Chris Tompkins, Corporate Operations Manager for RPDE, agreed. “This is a terrific opportunity to reflect Richard Petty Driving Experience’s continuing commitment to the armed forces and law enforcement communities,” Tompkins said. “Partnering with Propper was a logical choice.”

Richard Petty Driving Experience puts drivers in a NASCAR-style racecar for an adrenaline-pumping thrill of a lifetime that gets them as close to actual racing than they will ever get at more than 15 tracks around the country, including Daytona, Indy, Talladega, and Las Vegas.
