The company, which specializes in innovation and home security, will also be an associate sponsor on Newman’s No. 31 Chevrolet in every race for the remainder of 2014.

"We view Kwikset as a great partner and we look forward to working with them to help spread their safety and innovation message," said RCR owner and founder Richard Childress. "Kwikset has shown they are strongly committed to NASCAR and we’re thrilled we are teaming up with them again this season."

"Safety is important in all aspects of my life, so the partnership with Kwikset made perfect sense for our team," said Newman, who is ninth in points with two top-10s in his first four starts with RCR. "I’m excited to have their logo on my car this year and look forward to educating fans about innovations in security on and off the track."
