exceed sponsors' expectations
ON THE HORIZON: SCENE DAILY’s Jeff Owens noted RFR “had to contract from four to three Sprint Cup teams this season, but already is working on finding sponsors to expand back to four teams next season.” It also is “still looking for sponsors for its two Nationwide Series teams.” In addition, the organization “still needs sponsorship for about 10 races” for Cup driver Matt Kenseth. Meanwhile, Nationwide Series driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr. does not have a sponsor yet, but the organization “has committed to running him” for the full season. Driver Trevor Bayne is “expected to run a partial Nationwide schedule, but Roush is looking for sponsorship to run him for the full season as well.” Newmark: “We are still out there talking to a number of sponsors and that will dictate whether we bump from one and a half to a full two” (SCENEDAILY.com, 1/24).
