Quicken Loans announced Tuesday that it will be the primary sponsor on Kasey Kahne‘s car for three races in 2016 and serve as an associate sponsor for the remaining races.

The team has 10 races left to fill for primary sponsorship for 2016.

“We are excited to be joining forces with the talented team at Hendrick Motorsports,” said Jay Farner, President and Chief Marketing Officer of Quicken Loans in a news release on the Hendrick Motorsports website. “The organization has an undeniable record of winning and performance on the racetrack, and represents some of the preeminent brands in the country, who we look forward to working alongside.”

Quicken Loans had been with Ryan Newman the past four seasons, spending two seasons with him at Richard Childress Racing and two seasons with him at Stewart-Haas Racing before that.

“Ryan has been a terrific ambassador for our company and helped us to take our first steps into NASCAR,” Farner said in a news release on the Hendrick Motorsports website. “He and Richard Childress Racing have helped us accomplish tremendous things during our time together, and we’re proud to have been a part of their team. We are grateful for their guidance and support and we look forward to competing alongside them next year.”

One of Quicken Loans’ primary sponsorship races will include a joint promotion with Hendrick Automotive Group.

“It’s evident from meeting the Quicken Loans team that both of our organizations share a passion for competition,” said Rick Hendrick, Owner of Hendrick Motorsports and Chairman of Hendrick Automotive Group, in a news release on the Hendrick Motorsports website. “Quicken Loans has a reputation for exceptional client service, something we take to heart across all of our own businesses. We look forward to working together to achieve great things in 2016.”

Quicken Loans is one of four companies announced that will serve as a primary sponsor for Kahne’s team.

Farmers Insurance will serve as primary sponsor for 12 races. Great Clips will be a primary sponsor in 10 races. LiftMaster will serve as a primary sponsor in three races. Quicken Loans will be primary sponsor for three races.

That leaves 10 races left in a 38-race schedule (including the two non-points races) for the team to fill for next season.
