Stewart-Haas Racing and Anheuser-Busch have announced a three-year extension to sponsor the No. 4 of Kevin Harvick.

Busch will be on Harvick’s car for 16 races in 2017, an increase of four from this year.

The beer maker continues the relationship it began with Harvick in 2011 when he drove for Richard-Childress Racing and was sponsored by Budweiser. Anheuser-Busch brought back the Busch brand this season

Harvick, who is among the eight remaining drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup with three races left, has had Busch on his car in nine races this season, including the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway.

“From the retro look at Darlington to the blaze-orange hunting scheme at Charlotte, there’s been buzz every time one of the Busch paint schemes hits the track,” Harvick said in a press release. “The fans let us know how thrilled they were to have Busch back in the sport last year, and I’m looking forward to getting back to victory lane with the Busch logo on the hood in 2017 and beyond.”

Busch will begin the 2017 season on Harvick’s car in The Unlimited on Feb. 18.
