TALLADEGA, Alabama — Furniture Row Racing announced that Bass Pro Shops and 5-hour Energy will form a 30-race co-primary sponsorship of Martin Truex Jr.’s team for 2018.

For 16 races, Bass Pro Shops will be featured on the hood with 5-hour Energy featured on the sides of the car.

For 14 races, 5-hour Energy will be featured on the hood with Bass Pro Shops on the sides.

Auto Owners Insurance is returning to be primary sponsor for six races, leaving two races for the team to fill.

Furniture Row Racing previously announced that it will be a one-car team next season.

Rise’ Meguiar, president of sales for Living Essentials, parent company of 5-hour Energy, said that the company didn’t have any plans to leave the team after this season.

“There was no other thoughts other than Furniture Row,” Meguiar said. “It feels like home to us. They’ve been remarkable to work with, very supportive on and off the track. It’s also been remarkable to watch the teams and where they’ve run, running up front, winning races and now running for the championship has been pretty remarkable for us as a sponsor. We love Erik (Jones). It was great sponsoring him in his rookie year. He did us proud, as we knew he would. But what Martin has done this year has been truly amazing. We look forward to next year and this partnership.”
