Michigan International Speedway: June 16, 2017, 9:30 am

Ford and the Wood Brothers unveiled today Omnicraft Sponsorship for the number 21 team. Driver Ryan Blaney will carry the new colors this weekend at Michigan International Speedway.

Omnicraft is Ford’s first new brand in nearly 50 years” according to Brett Wheatley, Executive Director of North America for Ford Customer Service Division. Wheatley describes Omnicraft as a companion to the Motorcraft brand. “The new brand offers OEM quality parts for non-Ford models.” Now regardless of the make of vehicle, owners can get the same Motorcraft quality parts for their Chevrolet, Toyota, Volkswagen, or other vehicle make.

Last week’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series winner, Ryan Blaney, helped introduce the new brand. Along with Eddie and Len Wood from the iconic Wood Brother’s Racing Team. Eddie Wood commented on the importance of the life-long relationship the Wood Brothers have enjoyed with Ford Motor Company. “It started with our Dad and Uncles in 1950. And we have never raced anything but Ford Motor Company products. It’s probably the biggest thing we are proud of in our organization.”

Omnicraft parts are available at Ford dealerships nationwide.
