Quicken Loans has announced that they’ve extended their partnership with Richard Childress Racing and NASCAR driver Ryan Newman. The mortgage lender will be the primary sponsor for the No. 31 car for select races.
The 2015 season will be the fourth straight year that Quicken Loans has sponsored Newman’s car.
“We’re looking forward to partnering with RCR and Ryan in the upcoming season and continue this strong partnership,” said Jay Farner, President and Chief Marketing Officer for Quicken Loans.
“In the meantime, we’ll be cheering on Ryan and the No. 31 team as they make a run in this year’s Chase.”
This weekend, Newman will be racing in Dover, Delaware, as NASCAR returns to Dover International Speedway. Following the race, three drivers will be eliminated from the Chase format.
“It is great to have Quicken Loans back with me next year,” said Newman. “They have been loyal partners for several years and have become like family to me. As I continue to push forward in the Chase, it gives me increased confidence to know I have partners and friends that are standing with me not only this year, but also beyond.”
Today is the beginning of the Quicken Loans’ “Drive Home a Winner” program that RCR is helping promote. The lucky winner will receive a brand-new Chevrolet SS and their mortgage payments paid for a year.
