Valvoline co-sponsoring Paul Menard in four races beginning at Atlanta


Beginning this weekend with the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Valvoline will co-sponsor the No. 27 Chevrolet of Paul Menard in four Sprint Cup races this season.

Valvoline will be on the hood of Menard’s car at Atlanta, then it will return for the Brickyard 400 on July 24, the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on Sept. 4 and the Oct. 8 race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

“We are proud to further grow our historical racing footprint with the announcement of our newest partnership with Paul Menard and the company he represents,” said Jamal Muashsher, director of marketing for Valvoline Global Brands in a press release.  “Paul’s 2015 season was his best to date, and we hope the Valvoline brand brings him even greater success as this year’s Sprint Cup Series kicks off.”

Menard heads to Atlanta after starting his season by finishing 18th in the Daytona 500.

Valvoline was last seen in the Sprint Cup as a full sponsor for Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the the 2015 Southern 500.
