Menards will continue its partnership with Richard Childress Racing in the NASCAR XFINITY Series, positioning the third-largest home improvement store in the United States as a primary sponsor for select races on RCR's No. 33 Chevrolet entry with drivers Paul Menard and Brandon Jones in 2015.
Menards has played a pivotal role in RCR's NXS campaign since 2012.
"Sponsoring the No. 33 RCR team in the NASCAR XFINITY Series with drivers Paul Menard and Brandon Jones behind the wheel in 2015 is something we look forward to," said Jeff Abbott, Menards Promotions Manager. "This partnership is special to us and we are ready for another successful XFINITY Series campaign."
Menard will drive the No. 33 Menards Chevrolet Camaro for select events in 2015, while maintaining a full-time schedule in the No. 27 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series entry for RCR. The Eau Claire, Wisconsin native is a two-time XFINITY Series race winner with five pole awards, 31 top-five and 81 top-10 finishes.
As previously announced, Jones, a 17-year-old driver hailing from Atlanta, Ga., joins the RCR stable for a number of NXS events.
"Menards has become a key supporter of our XFINITY Series program through the past few years and I look forward to an even better future with them," said Richard Childress, CEO and Chairman of Richard Childress Racing. "John Menard has vast experience in motorsports and business and I have leaned on him for advice during our partnership. I can't thank him enough for being there.
"John, Paul Menard, all of the Menards team members and their vendor-partners have been very supportive of the RCR program. Menards strong customer service values, combined with their family culture, fit well with our culture here at RCR. I look forward to Brandon joining Paul as drivers for the Menards' program in 2015."
