Hendrick Motorsports confirmed today what Sirius Speedway first reported more than three weeks ago, that the Army National Guard will join GMAC as major sponsors of Hendrick's No. 25 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Chevrolet, driven by Casey Mears.
Mears will debut the new-look No. 25 National Guard/GMAC Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS next February in Daytona Beach, Florida, after its first public appearance at the January 7 GMAC Bowl at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Alabama. New enlistees of the Alabama National Guard will be sworn in on the field prior to the game between Ohio University and Southern Mississippi.
"This is a fantastic day for our organization," said team owner Rick Hendrick. "We take an enormous amount of pride in welcoming the men and women of the National Guard and continuing our time-honored relationship with GMAC. These are two incredible groups that share our vision for the No. 25 team and its bright future."
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
