Delphi continues 10-year winning relationship with Hendrick Motorsports
LAS VEGAS (Nov. 4, 2010)—Delphi will continue its sponsorship of Hendrick Motorsports during the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season. The announcement was made at a press conference held at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.
“This will be our 10th year with Hendrick Motorsports, one of NASCAR’s most successful teams, and we look forward to another winning season,” says Francisco A. (Frank) Ordoñez, president, Delphi Product & Service Solutions, and vice president, Delphi Corp. “For us it is about giving technicians access to the drivers and crew chiefs they look up to. We are partnering with the best, so we can give our customers the best.”
For the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, Delphi will be featured on the uniforms of Hendrick Motorsports drivers Mark Martin, Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson. In addition, crew chiefs Alan Gustafson, Chad Knaus and Steve Letarte will support the “Destination: Victory Lane” promotion at http://delphivictorylane.com.
The website is designed to give technicians access to Delphi technology and repair information; driver extras like photo galleries and “Ask the Crew Chief;” daily and weekly prize drawings; and an all-new sweepstakes drawing for a grand prize opportunity to win the “Delphi Dream Shop.”
“The partnership with a leading automotive company like Delphi continues to be very important to us from both a quality and technology standpoint,” said Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. “They’ve been a key contributor to our success, and we look forward to celebrating our 10th season together in 2011.”
