Credit One Bank to Sponsor Driver Kyle Larson
Credit One Bank and Chip Ganassi Racing have expanded their relationship. Today, CGR and Credit One announced the financial institution will sponsor driver Kyle Larson and the No. 42 team during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series (MENCS). The first race is scheduled for February 18 in Daytona and will air on Fox Sports 1.
Larson will be entering his fourth full season as a driver and is coming off his best season yet. In 2016, he finished ninth in the final points standing, and won his first MENCS race. The driver told NASCAR he is encouraged by Credit One’s expanded reach and sponsorship.
“It’s always good to have sponsors committed to the sport and upping their commitment to the sport,” Larson said. “I hope they get their full value out of the sponsorship with our race team and are a longtime sponsor of us and the sport. Looking forward to it and excited about 2017 and hoping for some good things.”
The bank will sponsor Larson in February and then in Phoenix on March 19, Texas on April 9, Bristol on April 23, Richmond on April 30, Daytona on July 1, Darlington on September 3 and back in Texas on November 5.
Credit One first partnered with Chip Ganassi Racing last year with Jamie McMurray and the No. 1 team, and will continue this relationship in 2017. Initially, Credit One signed a three-race agreement with McMurray, which eventually grew to a five-race deal. The bank picked up additional events as the season wore on, including offering cardholders the chance to win an Ultimate Race Weekend package.
Credit One Bank offers the officially-licensed NASCAR-themed credit card, which gives cardholders 1% cash back on eligible purchases and 2% cash back on purchases made at NASCAR.com.
