CONCORD, N.C. -- Freightliner Trucks has announced a five-year contract extension with 11-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports.
In addition, the company announced a new five-year contract with defending NASCAR XFINITY Series champions JR Motorsports. Both racing teams now have agreements with Freightliner through the 2020 NASCAR season.
With the Hendrick Motorsports partnership renewal, the team’s over-the-road drivers will continue to stay behind the wheel of their custom Freightliner trucks to carry race cars, supplies and equipment to Sprint Cup events across the United States.
“All four Hendrick Motorsports teams trust Freightliner for the important task of safely transporting our race cars and equipment to tracks across the country,” said Patrick Perkins, Hendrick Motorsports’ vice president of marketing. “NASCAR’s season runs February through November, and we rely on Freightliner trucks each and every week. We’re proud to continue what has been a longstanding and successful relationship.”
Added Stacey Premo, motorsports marketing manager for Freightliner Trucks: “We are honored to extend our partnership with Hendrick Motorsports and welcome aboard JR Motorsports. We’ve built a strong, long-term relationship with many NASCAR teams over the years, and we are excited about continuing our tradition of transporting many of the sport’s top teams.”
