Martin Truex Jr. leads charge of new NASCAR sponsor announcements
Some new sponsors are coming into NASCAR and that's a good thing.
Martin Truex Jr., the hottest racer in NASCAR, will carry the colors of Charlotte-based bodyshop company Maaco on his No. 78 Furniture Row Racing Toyota in Saturday night's Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
The car was unveiled Thursday at the track.
Also, Hendrick Motorsports has a new sponsor for Kasey Kahne and the No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet, with workwear and textile service provider UniFirst signing an eight-year sponsorship agreement.
UniFirst will be a two-race primary sponsor on the No. 5 this year and next, and a three-race primary sponsor from 2018-2023. UniFirst will also be a full-season associate sponsor of the No. 5 team.
And last but not least. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver Austin Wayne Self and AM Racing No.22 truck will carry sponsorship from "Trump-Pence, Make American Great Again" at the upcoming Fred's Pharmacy 250 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Talladega Superspeedway.
