On Tuesday evening, Chip Ganassi Racing announced that Credit One Bank has signed a multi-year deal to return as a primary sponsor on Kyle Larson‘s No. 42 Chevrolet. With Target leaving the team, Credit One Bank is substantially increasing their sponsorship of Larson so that they will have the largest chunk of races on the No. 42 going forward.
Larson is very happy to see Credit One Bank expand their role with the team.
“It’s great that Credit One Bank will be expanding their partnership with our team next season,” Larson stated. “It’s been cool to see their excitement and interest in our team and NASCAR grow throughout this year. We’ve had some exciting races with them on board, and hopefully there’s more to come next year.
In addition, Credit One Bank will continue to serve as an associate sponsor on Jamie McMurray‘s No. 1 Chevrolet. That separate deal is through the end of 2018.
The team did not indicate how many races that Credit One Bank will serve as the team’s primary sponsor in their press release. In 2017, Credit One Bank was the primary sponsor on Larson’s No. 42 in 10 races, and a co-primary sponsor (with DC Solar) in one more (Homestead). In those races, Larson had four top five finishes with a best finish of second on two separate occasions. In addition, Credit One Bank served as a co-primary sponsor of Jamie McMurray’s No. 1 Chevrolet at Las Vegas in March. In that race, McMurray started 10th and finished eighth.
