Gateway Motorsports Park is going World Wide.

The Illinois multi-faceted motorsport facility, located just across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, announced Wednesday that it will be renamed and rebranded as World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.

World Wide Technology (WWT) is based in St. Louis and “provides digital strategy, innovative technology and supply chain solutions to large public and private organizations around the globe,” according to a media release issued by the race track.

World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway hosts a number of racing events each year including NASCAR, IndyCar and NHRA on a 1.25-mile speedway, 1/4-mile drag strip and a 1.6-mile road course.

The support of WWT will help ensure that our track will compete for North America’s most elite races and offer an innovative and exhilarating fan experience for years to come,” track owner and CEO Curtis Francois said in a media release. “The relationship with WWT will help us tremendously as we continue to grow World Wide Technology Raceway into one of the premier racing facilities in the country.”

WWT is already active in motorsports as a partner and sponsor of the No. 43 Richard Petty Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro, driven by Bubba Wallace.
