(Indianapolis, IN) - PacWest Racing Group has announced a new partnership with NTN Bearing Corporation of America.

The arrangement will see NTN engineers working with PacWest staff to create better racing products and a competitive edge in this year's FedEx Championship Series, which continues with the Rio 200 in Brazil this weekend.

At the same time, NTN will have the chance to make use of the many networking and marketing opportunities developed by PacWest. NTN is a global leader in the design and manufacturing of a broad line of anti-friction bearings and constant velocity joints.

PacWest's Vice President of Race Operations, John Anderson, said the addition of NTN to the team's list of a technical partners was a welcomed one.

"NTN Bearing Corporation is a welcomed addition at PacWest that we are all excited about," said Anderson. "To be partnered with a company of their high standards, regarding the quality and reliability of their bearings, fits perfectly with PacWest's dedication to winning races. "We will be working together to try and develop ideas to give us the edge over the opposition which is needed to win championships."

The partnership with PacWest was the next logical step for NTN with an existing partnership continuing with the P1 Formula Atlantics team, according the company's Vice-President Rick Thomas.

PacWest and P1 have also had a successful business relationship, which has seen the atlantics team become a "satellite" operation of PacWest.

"We have already found the area of motorsports a great testing ground for our products and a great atmosphere in which to do business," said Thomas. "PacWest has a fantastic reputation in this industry and together I think we can produce some impressive results -- on and off the track."
