With its headquarters in Staunton, Virginia, they provide another strong tie to the Commonwealth of Virginia here at RIR. Not only is Federated Auto Parts the entitlement partner for the regular season finale in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, you can see hundreds of their guests out here on property during race weekend. We’re thrilled to partner with Federated Auto Parts, and look to what the future holds.”
