On Monday, Hendrick Motorsports announced that Great Clips Inc. will be the primary sponsor of Kasey Kahne and the No. 5 team in three 2013 Sprint Cup Series races. On November 4, Great Clips was a co-primary sponsor on the No. 5 for the 500 mile race at Texas Motor Speedway. That was the first time that Great Clips was a primary sponsor in the Sprint Cup Series.
“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. We could not ask for a better partner to take this step with than Hendrick Motorsports, a team that shares our company’s values. At Great Clips, our tagline is ‘It’s gonna be great,’ and that’s exactly how we feel about this relationship.”
In his first season with Hendrick Motorsports in 2012 Kahne finished a career high of fourth in the points standings. His 13.1 average finish was the best he has turned out in his nine year Sprint Cup Series career.Tags: Bristol Motor Speedway, Great Clips Inc., Hendrick Motorsports, indianapolis motor speedway, Kasey Kahne, Motorsports, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Sprint Cup Series, Terri Miller, Texas Motor Speedway
