Cory Roper and Roper Racing have announced that the Advance Auto Parts’ Carquest brand is now a primary sponsor within the organization.

“We are excited about sponsoring Cory Roper and RRT,” said Michael Cooper, Senior Vice President, Professional Sales. “We are proud to be joining this team and look forward to a successful partnership in 2020.”

In addition, Advance’s TechNet Professional Automotive Service and Advance Professional brands will serve as associate sponsors for RRT in 2020.

2020 will mark Roper’s third season competing in the NGROTS.

Roper made his Truck Series debut at Martinsville Speedway in 2018, finishing 13th in his debut.

He went to make five more starts that season earning three top-20 and five top-25 finishes. Overall, his debut at the paperclip was his best finish of the season.

Returning to the series on a part-time basis in 2019, Roper made nine starts and tallied up one top-10 and five top-20 finishes. He earned a career and season best finish of ninth at his home track of Texas Motor Speedway last June.

“I am excited about starting the 2020 race season with the partnerships we have gained with Carquest,” said Roper in a team press release.

“Roper Racing Team has worked hard and invested in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series to become a top tier team. We could not do this without our new partnerships, and we are excited to be representing them for the 2020 season.”
