NAPA is an official sponsor of NASCAR and currently sponsors the No. 24 Chevrolet SS of Chase Elliott and Hendrick Motorsports in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. The company sponsored the No. 56 Toyota Camry driven in the Cup Series by Martin Truex Jr. for Michael Waltrip Racing up to 2013 and also sponsored Michael Waltrip from 2001 to 2009 when he drove for Dale Earnhardt, Inc., Bill Davis Racing, and his own team. All four of Waltrip's wins were with NAPA as his sponsor, including the 2001 and 2003 Daytona 500's. NAPA also sponsored Truex's brother Ryan in the K&N Pro Series East and was the sponsor for multi-time champion driver Kelly Moore in the same series. NAPA dropped its sponsorship of MWR after a major scandal during the 2013 Federated Auto Parts 400. In 2014, NAPA began sponsoring JR Motorsports' Chase Elliott in the Xfinity Series. In May 2015, NAPA announced it would become the majority sponsor of Elliott and the No. 24 Chevrolet team in the Cup Series with Hendrick in 2016.

In May 2016, Balkamp, a subsidiary of NAPA, became a primary sponsor of Alexander Rossi, a driver for Andretti Autosport in the IndyCar Series, on a one-race sponsorship for the Indianapolis 500.
