Great Clips and Hendrick Motorsports have extended their partnership to cover the next three seasons.
The No. 5 car driven by Kasey Kahne will have sponsorship from Great Clips in 2014, 2015 and 2016. The company began sponsoring the car in 2012 with Kahne’s arrival at Hendrick.
“The people at Great Clips have been committed to NASCAR as a marketing platform for many years,” said Rick Hendrick, owner of Hendrick Motorsports. “They continue to see a great return on investment, and we’re focused on continuing that trend by performing at a high level on the racetrack while delivering business wins. Great Clips is a terrific partner, and we look forward to building on the success we’ve already had together.”
Great Clips will also be featured on Kahne’s Chevrolet this weekend at Indianapolis, marking the second of three scheduled primary races for the company in 2013. They will sponsor the car again at New Hampshire in September.
“We are very proud to have Kasey drive the #5 for Great Clips,” said Terri Miller, vice president of marketing and communications for Great Clips. “On behalf of all of our corporate staff, franchisees and stylists, Kasey has become a special member of our family over the years. He has brought great value to our brand and helped our system grow. Being a partner of Hendrick Motorsports is truly an honor as we share the same values, integrity and passion to win.”
Prior to joining Hendrick Motorsports Kahne had been sponsored by Great Clips while driving in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for Turner Motorsports.
“I’m happy to see Great Clips make a long-term commitment to the #5 team,” Kahne said. “I’m thankful for the support they’ve provided throughout my career, and I look forward to representing them for years to come. Bristol was our first Sprint Cup win together, and everyone on the team expects to deliver many more.”
