CONCORD, N.C. — Roush Fenway Racing has announced a multi-race partnership with Leidos, a global science and technology solutions company.

As part of its entry into NASCAR, Leidos will serve as a primary sponsor for NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Bubba Wallace and the No. 6 team.

“We are thrilled to have Leidos on board,” said Wallace. “It’s an awesome company that shares our vision of excellence and dedication to high performance. We are honored to represent a company of its caliber and have them featured on our car as we make what we hope will be a strong run during the Chase.”

Leidos will serve as the primary sponsor for Wallace in NXS races at Dover (Oct. 1), Charlotte (Oct. 7), Kansas (Oct. 15) and Texas (Nov. 5), as the team looks to make a deep run into the inaugural XFINITY Series Chase for the championship.

Wallace is ninth in the NXS point standings with three top-five finishes and seven top 10 results.

“Teaming with Roush Fenway Racing and Bubba gives us the opportunity to share the Leidos story with 80 million NASCAR fans,” said Roger Krone, Leidos chairman and chief executive officer. “We share a passion for engineering breakthroughs with Roush Fenway Racing, which makes this a natural fit for our organization.”
