Nationwide Insurance will sponsor Stenhouse in three races in the 2013 season and four races in the 2014 season. The company will also be an associate sponsor on the #17 Ford for the rest of the races.
"We've had a 15-year presence in NASCAR and this is the first time we've sponsored a car in any NASCAR series," said Matt Jauchius, chief marketing officer for Nationwide Insurance. "We built a solid relationship with Roush Fenway and two-time NASCAR Nationwide Series champion and Nationwide Insurance member, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and we're eager to carry that momentum forward and enhance our existing integrated NASCAR marketing platform."
Nationwide will sponsor Stenhouse at Bristol in August; Richmond in September and Talladega in October.Tags: Motorsports, NASCAR, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, ricky stenhouse jr, roush fenway racing
