Roush Fenway Racing has signed a multi-year sponsorship extension with the Fastenal Company to serve as anchor partner of Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s No. 17 Sprint Cup Series Ford.
“Fastenal is a first-class organization with values that align completely with myself and this race team,” Stenhouse said. “We’ve seen improvement across the board this year. Our goal and expectation are to reward Fastenal with a trip to Victory Lane in the near future.”
Fastenal is in its fifth season as a primary sponsor in Roush Fenway’s Sprint Cup stable and its second full season as anchor partner on Stenhouse’s No. 17 Ford.
“To have a company the caliber of Fastenal recognize the long-term value of a partnership with Roush Fenway is gratifying,” said RFR President Steve Newmark. “During our relationship, Fastenal has created and implemented a robust and impactful motor sports marketing program.”
Fastenal first joined Roush Fenway as a primary sponsor in 2010 in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
“Ricky has done an excellent job representing our brand, both on and off the track,” said Fastenal President and CEO Dan Florness. “NASCAR has helped us grow our business and excite our employees, and we feel a strong connection with the NASCAR community and fan base.”
Through the first 12 races of the 2016 season, Stenhouse is 20th in points with two top-10 finishes.
