- Jan 08, 2007
LAS VEGAS (Jan. 8, 2007) – Delphi Product & Service Solutions announced today at a media reception held at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas that it will continue its major associate sponsorship of Hendrick Motorsports during the 2007 NASCAR season. Nextel Cup Series driver Kyle Busch personally attended the reception to help kick off yet another year with Delphi.
An associate sponsor of all 2007 Hendrick Motorsports entries, Delphi will also be the primary sponsor of Busch’s No. 5 Chevrolets in the NASCAR Busch Series for five races. Delphi-sponsored events in the Busch Series will include Las Vegas (3/10), Talladega (4/28), Daytona (7/6), Chicago (7/14), and Texas (11/3).
In addition, Delphi will receive preferred logo placement on both the No. 5 Chevys driven by Busch and the No. 25 Chevys of Casey Mears in select 2007 Nextel Cup Series races.
“Delphi is proud to continue its sponsorship of Hendrick Motorsports for the 2007 NASCAR season,” says Francisco A. (Frank) Ordoñez, president, Delphi Product & Service Solutions and vice-president, Delphi Corp. “We are also very excited to welcome Casey Mears to the Delphi family, and look forward to a very exciting season with all of the Hendrick drivers.”
Mears will be Hendrick Motorsports’ newest driver at the start of the 2007 season, joining a roster that includes four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon, 2006 Cup champion Jimmie Johnson and Busch, the 2005 rookie of the year. Delphi will continue to be featured on the uniforms of all of the Hendrick drivers.
“We have had a terrific relationship with Delphi for the past six years,” said Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. “This association has been extremely important to our organization on many levels and we look forward to having them continue as a key partner for the 2007 season.”
In addition to the relationship with Hendrick, Delphi supplies NASCAR with ignition wire sets, electrical connectors, steering pumps, safety testing and the 600 Series Integral Steering Gear.
