William Byron will carry the colors of Acronis, a global leader in cyber backup protection, in two NASCAR Cup Series events this season, beginning with this weekend’s Verizon 200 at the Brickyard.
The company will also be featured as the primary sponsor on the No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro at Bristol Motor Speedway on September 17th. Hendrick Motorsports made the announcement in a press release on Tuesday.
Byron, who has two wins this season, is looking forward to hitting the track with Acronis on board.
“It means a lot that Acronis sees so much value in our program,” Byron said. “I’m excited about getting on the racetrack with their paint scheme this weekend at Indy and in the playoffs at Bristol. Our No. 24 team is working hard to carry momentum into the fall and contend for a championship. We’re proud to have Acronis on board as we keep pushing toward that goal.”
In addition to the two primaries on Byron’s car for this season, Acronis and Hendrick Motorsports have reached a marketing and technology partnership extension through the end of the 2025 season.
“Recommitting to this partnership is a no-brainer for everyone involved, and we are proud that it will help underscore our important work with Climb,” said Pat Hurley, Acronis’ vice president and general manager, Americas in a HMS release. “Hendrick Motorsports understands the risks associated with managing large amounts of data, and with our arsenal of #CyberFit-ready services, Acronis is proud to give them that peace of mind, keeping them secure and protected so the team can keep its focus on the track – where it belongs.”
Acronis will continue as the Official Cyber Protection Partner of Hendrick Motorsports for years to come.
