Hertz Rental Car has extended its relationship with Hendrick Motorsports into the 2021 season, sticking with the No. 24 team of William Byron, the team announced Wednesday, Oct. 23.
Hertz joined Byron’s team in 2018 and will be the primary sponsor on the No. 24 for four races, along with an associate sponsorship for the full season.
In 2020, these races will be Auto Club Speedway, the spring ISM Raceway event, the fall Talladega Superspeedway race and the fall race at Kansas Speedway.
“From offering a special line of Camaros to rewarding high-performing employees with NASCAR experiences, Hertz has done a wonderful job with the program,” team owner Rick Hendrick said in a team release. “In only his second year, William has shown he can run up front on any type of racetrack. The future of the No. 24 team is very bright, and we look forward to sharing that future with everyone at Hertz.”
Byron made the playoffs in his sophomore season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, with five poles, two stage wins, four top fives and 12 top 10s thus far in his first season with new crew chief Chad Knaus.
“We’ve done a lot in a short amount of time, but there’s so much more to accomplish,” Byron said. “I can’t wait to put the new No. 24 Hertz paint scheme on the racetrack and see what else we can do together.”
Byron is currently 10th in the MENCS standings with 2,181 points through 32 events.
