Della Penna Lands Budweiser Sponsorship

CART Online (February 13, 1998) -- Longtime FedEx Championship Series sponsor Budweiser has become major sponsor of the Della Penna Motorsports PPG Cup team and its driver, Richie Hearn. Ralphs Grocery Company continues with the team as its major associate sponsor.

"We began our relationship with Anheuser-Busch [brewer of Budweiser] three years ago, during our 1995 Toyota/Atlantic championship season," said team owner John Della Penna. "I have always been proud of our relationship and respect their commitment to success. The team intends to reflect this on the track with a successful 1998 season."

Hearn echoed his owner's enthusiasm.

"It's exciting to be involved with Anheuser-Busch," he said. "They have a stellar reputation of supporting the sports industry and possess all the elements necessary for promoting their team and driver.

"It's a good feeling to have the continued support of a sponsor who has watched me progress over the years. This is a great opportunity for me and the team and I hope to make Budweiser proud."
