DEWALT Expands Matt Kenseth, Joe Gibbs Racing Partnership

Matt Kenseth and DEWALT Tools continue to expand their partnership in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, as the company and Joe Gibbs Racing announced a sponsorship extension today (June 30) for 2016 and beyond.

DEWALT will now adorn Kenseth’s No. 20 for four additional races in 2016 and will expand its primary sponsorship to 15 races in 2017, while snagging associate branding when not the primary.

Additionally, the company will sponsor XFINITY Series cars driven by Erik Jones and Daniel Suarez in six more races this season.

The newly announced races for Kenseth and DEWALT in 2016 include Chicagoland, Dover, Kansas and Homestead-Miami speedways.

DEWALT sponsored the former Sprint Cup Series champion for much of his career in the series, with a partnership lasting from 1999 to 2009. The brand more recently sponsored Marcos Ambrose at Richard Petty Motorsports.

The company will adorn Kenseth’s car at this weekend’s race at Daytona as well as Jones’ No. 20 in the XFINITY Series.
