On top of bringing Keith Rodden back to HMS after a year with Ganassi, Hendrick is also bringing sponsor LiftMaster back. LiftMaster was an associate sponsor for Dale Earnhardt, Jr. back in 2011 and has been a sponsor of Ganassi since the same time frame, including select races as primary sponsor on the No. 1 car of Jamie McMurray.
There’s been no word whether LiftMaster will continue to sponsor the No. 1 or Ganassi, though LiftMaster’s sponsorship page makes it look like it’ll be all about Hendrick Motorsports and Kasey Kahne’s No. 5.
Liftmaster has partnered through 2017 with the No. 5 team, with the dates it will be the primary sponsor in 2015 already announced. LiftMaster will be the primary sponsor in 2015 for the No. 5 Chevrolet SS May 24 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, July 11 at Kentucky Speedway and October 18 at Kansas Speedway.
