AdventHealth will increase its partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, including two primary sponsorships, the team announced Thursday, May 9.
The healthcare network will be featured as the primary sponsor of Kyle Larson‘s No. 42 Chevrolet entry for the Monster Energy Open at Charlotte Motor Speedway and of Kurt Busch‘s No. 1 Chevrolet at Kansas Speedway this October.
We are thrilled to announce the expansion of our partnership with @CGRnascar. To be a small part of their success as a health care partner is something our 80,000 team members can celebrate. @CGRTeams @KurtBusch @KyleLarsonRacin @DISupdates #NASCAR https://t.co/JhQOh9HXRf pic.twitter.com/AfOweAmSMP

“I am excited to have AdventHealth on our car for the All-Star weekend,” Larson said in a team release. I have had the chance to meet them over the last few years and hope we can show them a great time with the [No.] 42 team. Our team does a great job on and off the track working with our partners and to have AdventHealth on the [No.] 42 car for the first time is a great example of that work. We’ll have some work to do to get into the All-Star race, but I’m looking forward to the challenge of racing into the main event.”
No stranger to NASCAR sponsorship, AdventHealth became a primary sponsoring partner of Daytona International Speedway in 2014. This season, the company has taken an associate sponsorship role with CGR, including quarter panel logo placement on both the Busch and Larson entries. In addition, the company served as Jamie McMurray‘s primary sponsor for the 2019 Advance Auto Part’s Clash in a joint effort between CGR and Spire Motorsports.
“I am thrilled to have AdventHealth onboard for our playoff push in Kansas later this season,” Busch added. “I was first introduced to AdventHealth this year through the work they do at the Human Innovation and Development Lab at Chip Ganassi Racing. It is motivating to see how they work with our trainers to help our team feel whole while performing at our highest level every weekend. I am thankful that AdventHealth is continuing their partnership with CGR and look forward to delivering the results they deserve in Kansas this fall.”
Currently sitting 15th in points, Larson has recorded one top five and three top 10s this season. Teammate Busch has notched three top fives and seven top 10s and currently sits eighth in the MENCS point standings.
