It's a relationship that has worked for both parties and we are looking forward to their continued and increased involvement with the speedway."

"We have grown our partnership with the Texas Motor Speedway every year since we moved to Texas in 1998," said Ron Byerly, O'Reilly vice president of advertising, marketing and training. "Texas Motor Speedway has played a significant role in our motorsports marketing strategy and with the announcement today, we have formed a long term commitment that will guarantee O'Reilly Auto Parts will be a major race sponsor for years to come."
