Liberty National Life Insurance Company will become a sponsor of Trevor Bayne’s No. 6 Ford Fusion in the 2017 NASCAR Premier Series, Roush Fenway Racing officials announced Wednesday.

Liberty National will serve as a primary sponsor starting with the March race at Atlanta Motor Speedway and a number of other races. Liberty National will also serve as a major associate partner for multiple races during the 2017 season, RFR officials said.

The insurance firm joins AdvoCare as primary sponsors for Bayne’s third full-time season in NASCAR’s top series.

Bayne, who won the 2011 Daytona 500 just one day after his 20th birthday, finished 22nd in the Sprint Cup Series standings in 2016, earning three top-five and five top-10 finishes.
