Caterpillar To Leave BDR For RCR
It’s official. Today, Caterpillar announced that it will be leaving Bill Davis Racing’s No. 22 Toyota and Dave Blaney as primary sponsor in 2009 and heading to Richard Childress Racing’s No. 31 and Jeff Burton, an RCR press release reports.
AT&T is leaving the sport following the season, and given Jeff Burton’s performance over the last two years, it was hard to imagine him going without a sponsor next year.
BDR will announce plans for its second car, the No. 23, in the coming weeks, according to BDR’s press release.
