Acronis Returns to Newman’s Ford in Kentucky
Global Leader in Cyber Protection Back as Primary for No. 6 Team This Weekend
CONCORD, N.C. (July 9, 2020) – Acronis – a global leader in cyber protection – will return to Ryan Newman’s No. 6 Ford Mustang this weekend when the NASCAR Cup Series visits Kentucky Speedway Sunday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. ET.
Acronis joined the Roush Fenway family in 2019 as the two announced a multi-year partnership, serving as both a marketing platform and technology partnership. Acronis was the primary partner for select races in the 2019 campaign as Newman earned his spot in the NASCAR Playoffs. Acronis was originally set to make its 2020 debut at Atlanta Motor Speedway in March, but adjusted its schedule due to implications from COVID-19.
“We’re proud to welcome Acronis to the car for the first time in 2020 this weekend in Kentucky,” Newman said. “This partnership goes above and beyond being on the car, and we’re appreciative of everything they assist us with both at the track and at the shop. We had a good run at Kentucky a year ago, and look to do the same come Sunday in our Acronis Ford.”
