Quicken Loans is moving to their third Chevrolet team in four years. After sponsoring Ryan Newman first at Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in the No. 39, and then following Newman to his current No. 31 team at Richard Childress Racing (RCR), Quicken Loans is abandoning Newman and moving over to Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 5 car, driven by Kasey Kahne.
“We are excited to be joining forces with the talented team at Hendrick Motorsports,” said Jay Farner, President and Chief Marketing Officer of Quicken Loans.
“The organization has an undeniable record of winning and performance on the racetrack, and represents some of the preeminent brands in the country, who we look forward to working alongside.”
The sponsorship of the No. 5 Chevrolet SS for 2016 includes serving as a primary sponsor for a trio of races, and as an associate sponsor for the remainder of the 2016 Sprint Cup schedule.
“Having an engaging and supportive brand like Quicken Loans backing the No. 5 Chevy gives us even more reason to think 2016 will be a great year for our team,” Kahne said.
“Quicken Loans has made a big name for itself in our sport, in its industry and certainly in the Motor City. Good partners are important to succeed in racing, and we’re thrilled about building this new relationship with Quicken Loans.”
