Kahne to have sponsorship from Great Clips in three Cup events

Great Clips is a familiar sponsor of Kasey Kahne in the NASCAR Nationwide Series. In 2013 the company will be the sponsor of the No. 5 Chevrolet for  three Sprint Cup races.

“It’s exciting to have Great Clips come on board the No. 5 for 2013,” Kahne said in a statement released by Hendrick Motorsports. “They’ve been with me for most of my career, supporting me as a driver and a team owner. It’s always great to see a partner step up their program, and I’m looking forward to bringing them their first win in the Sprint Cup Series.”

The world’s largest salon brand will sponsor Kahne at Bristol (March 17), Indianapolis (July 28) and Loudon (Sept. 22) after co-sponsoring him in the Sprint Cup’s fall race at Texas in 2012.

“Kasey Kahne has been such an important member of our Great Clips family since we first sponsored him nearly 10 years ago,” said Terri Miller, vice president of marketing for Great Clips. “To have the opportunity to work with Kasey in the Sprint Cup Series is a very proud moment for all of us.”

Kahne is a 14 time winner at the Sprint Cup level. In his first season with Hendrick Motorsports, Kahne won two races and finished a career best fourth in the overall driver standings.
