SunnyD to sponsor Ricky Stenhouse Jr. in Cup, Xfinity


Fresh off his first top-10 finish of the 2016 season, Roush Fenway Racing has announced Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will be sponsored by the drink SunnyD in both the Sprint Cup and Xfinity Series this season.

SunnyD will be on Stenhouse’s No. 17 Ford Fusion for four races and the No. 60 Xfinity car for one race.

The drink, which appeared on the deck lid of Mark Martin‘s car during the 1990 season, will make its debut with Stenhouse in the May 15 race at Dover International Speedway, then return at Pocono Raceway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Stenhouse will then have SunnyD as a sponsor in the Nov. 12 Xfinity race at Phoenix International Raceway.

“This is really awesome,” said Stenhouse in a media release. “Who didn’t grow up loving the bold taste of SunnyD? It’s truly one of the most recognizable brands in the world and it’s great to both have them on board as a partner and of course to have a big supply of SunnyD on hand at the track as the season moves into the hot, thirsty months of summer.”

Heading into the third race of the season at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Stenhouse is 13th in the points standing after finishing 10th at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
