Fastenal will continue to sponsor the No. 17 of Roush Fenway Racing in the NASCAR Cup Series through 2024, the team announced Wednesday, May 19.
The company has been with the organization since 2010 in the Xfinity Series; it will stay as an anchor partner on the N0. 17 car, currently driven by Chris Buescher.
“For more than 10 years Fastenal has been one of the cornerstones of our partner lineup and we are thrilled to have them continue their long-standing commitment to Roush Fenway and the No. 17 team,” Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark said in a team release. “During our partnership, Fastenal has not only created impactful motorsports marketing programs, but they have been instrumental in helping us maximize our build process with tailored solutions to our supply chain and inventory management controls.”
Newmark said in a press conference that it anticipates Buescher being with the team through the length of the Fastenal deal and beyond.
