AARP Renews As Sponsor Of Jeff Gordon's No. 24 Ride For '15 Season
Hendrick Motorsports today announced that AARP and the AARP Foundation's Drive to End Hunger Program will return in '15 as a sponsor of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series No. 24 driven by Jeff Gordon. The deal is for primary sponsorship in the Daytona 500 and 12 other races, down from 22 total this season, and associate sponsorship in all other races (HMS).
Meanwhile, Dale Earnhardt Jr. said that he "hoped to continue representing the National Guard" despite the organization announcing Wednesday that it will pull its $32M motorsports sponsorship. Earnhardt said, "We don't really have any details on anything, and that's between the Guard and HMS to sort all that out. I've really enjoyed working with them over the last seven years and I hope to be able to continue to represent them. It's been a huge honor" (USATODAY.com, 8/8).
