Joe Gibbs Racing partner Sport Clips will continue into 2015 and will be a four-race primary sponsor for Denny Hamlin and Carl Edwards, for two races each.
Hamlin will run the Sport Clips colors at Auto Club Speedway and the Southern 500 weekend at Darlington. Meanwhile Edwards’ new No. 19 Toyota Camry will see these colors on board at the July New Hampshire and November Texas race.
Hamlin will also run the NASCAR XFINITY Series weekend at Darlington with Sport Clips colors on his JGR Camry there.
“When Denny began driving for Sport Clips, we had a few more than 700 locations open at the time, and we now have more than 1,300 locations in the U.S. and Canada – a milestone we were proud to reach at the end of 2014. We are pleased to have Denny, and now Carl, along for the ride in 2015!” Gordon Logan, founder and CEO of Sport Clips, said in a release.
Here are images of the two cars as posted via JGR on Twitter this morning.
“I’m so excited to join Andretti United Extreme E,” Munnings said in a release. ““I was really intrigued when I first heard about Extreme E, I just knew I had to be involved. The male / female racing partnership is a fantastic and exciting new concept. The season has incredible locations and the racing will be very exciting. It will be a new challenge for the teams and drivers, and I’m so thrilled to be working with such a strong team.
“The championship is a really innovative concept, it’s combining motorsport and science and will produce an important legacy in each race location. Bringing the platform that motorsport has in line with the awareness that the planet needs right now is awesome and a really important message.”
Said Hansen: “Going into the Extreme E will be a new chapter in my career, one that I am extremely excited about. It is something brand new, not only for me, but the whole of motorsport. The format is something
we’ve never seen before. I’m also delighted to be able to carry the message of something bigger – talking about the environment and doing something good for the world – that’s something that really drives me. It’s going to be a big adventure in life to see these locations and I’m going to do my best in carrying this responsibility and hopefully making people aware of the challenges we have in the world, together with our passion for racing.”
