Transportation Impact Teams Up With Elite Motorsports & Two-Time World Champ Erica Enders

Elite Motorsports announced today that Transportation Impact (TI) will serve as an official sponsor for the team and two-time Pro Stock world champion Erica Enders for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.

TI was a previous partner with Elite, and the two successful companies are again working together for the next two years with TI having a visible presence on both Enders’ Pro Stock Chevrolet Camaro and her turbocharged Pro Mod Camaro.

Enders will race the full 18-race NHRA Pro Stock schedule, as well as the 12-race Pro Mod slate, putting TI in a prime spotlight for the 2019 campaign.

“It’s fantastic to team up with people whose core values align perfectly with ours,” TI Co-Founder Keith Byrd said. “Just like us, Elite and Erica strive to be the very best they can be. Attention to detail is the common thread that earns customers and wins championships!”

One of the fastest-growing companies in North Carolina, TI has experienced robust growth since its 2008 founding, helping high-volume parcel shippers reduce costs through innovative audit and negotiation services. A multiple-award winner, TI was also named to the Inc. Magazine Inc. 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies in America for the sixth straight year.

“Erica and the whole team at Elite are true professionals who set their eyes on the finish line and don’t stop until they get there,” TI Co-Founder Travis Burt said. “We’re proud to be affiliated with them, and we can’t wait to see our TI logo flashing past the finish line!”

Elite Motorsports team owner Richard Freeman has seen the benefits of a company that has saved customers more than $370 million since its founding. After previously working with the company and seeing their success as a sponsor for Richard Petty Motorsports in the NASCAR ranks, Freeman was thrilled to have TI return as a sponsor for Enders’ Pro Stock and Pro Mod season.

“It’s a fantastic company with great people and we’re excited to be working with them again,” Freeman said. “They’ve come in and saved us a lot of money with what they’re able to do, and anyone racer or team who spends money with FedEx and UPS would be wise to see how they can help. They love our sport, they have a lot to offer and it’s a great opportunity for our business.”
