Sep. 10, 2014

KANNAPOLIS, N.C.– Ditech Mortgage Corp (“ditech”), one of the mortgage industry’s best-known brands, has partnered with Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR), the title-winning NASCAR Sprint Cup Series team, in a multiyear agreement.

ditech will serve as an associate sponsor of Kevin Harvick and the No. 4 Budweiser/Jimmy John’s team beginning with the Sept. 12-14 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race weekend at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois. ditech will appear on the C-post of the No. 4 Chevrolet and on the chest of Harvick’s firesuit.

“At ditech, we’re all NASCAR fans,” said Patti Cook, President of DT Holdings, parent company of ditech. “NASCAR is part of the fabric of America and so is ditech’s goal of securing home ownership for as many Americans as possible. Everyone – from our employees to our customers – can’t wait to cheer on Kevin’s amazing team on the racetrack.”

Headquartered in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, ditech’s overarching goal is to change the experience of securing a mortgage. The company views itself not as being in the mortgage business, but rather as being in the business of helping Americans reach their dream of homeownership. It routinely employs NICE as a four-letter word, translating to:

  • No double-talk
  • Integrity
  • Customer satisfaction
  • Expertise

ditech employs three sales channels for its mortgage and refinance loans: direct-to-consumer, through a team of home-loan specialists who are easily accessible by phone and online; retail, via loan specialists located throughout the United States; and the correspondent market, by partnering with more than 600 financial institutions. The company offers a full range of home mortgage products for both purchase and refinance, including fixed-rate mortgages, adjustable-rate mortgages, jumbo loans and FHA loans.

“What ditech stands for are the same things I stand for,” said Harvick, a winner of 25 Sprint Cup races, including NASCAR’s crown-jewel events: the Daytona 500, Brickyard 400 and Southern 500. “Anyone who knows me knows that I’m pretty direct, and that I expect people to be treated fairly and honestly. It’s how I operate, and it’s how we all operate at Stewart-Haas Racing. Our expertise is in racing, and ditech’s is in the mortgage industry. Together, we make a powerful team that delivers on and off the racetrack.”

“While Kevin and Stewart-Haas Racing pursue victories on the racetrack, ditech is relentless in our pursuit of securing the American Dream,” said Rich Smith, Chief Marketing Officer at ditech. “We and our customers are excited to partner with such an admired brand, and all of us look forward to many victories ahead.”

I had worked with Mike Arning and True Speed while employed by The Home Depot. When I moved on to another assignment and had the need to find a reliable and creative motorsports public relations program for SunTrust and its sponsorship in the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series, our search led straight to True Speed. We brought them on board for the last four races of the 2006 season and they immediately jump-started our publicity efforts, landing hits in USA Today and in each local market of interest to us. Considering that the Rolex Series is on the periphery of the motorsports spectrum, we know that getting through to the racing media is no small achievement. That is why True Speed Communication began representing our motorsports publicity efforts full-time in 2007 with a dedicated account rep. Their reputation for professionalism and keen journalistic sense among the most influential members of the racing media is second to none."
