Liberty National Life Insurance Company will be a primary sponsor on Ryan Newman‘s car for select races in 2018 and an associate sponsor for the entire year, Richard Childress Racing announced Wednesday.
The team did not state how many races the company would serve as a primary sponsor on Newman’s car. RCR also announced that Liberty National Life Insurance Company becomes an official benefits provider to the race team.
“Liberty National Racing is excited to continue in NASCAR in 2018 with Richard Childress Racing, Ryan Newman, and the No. 31 crew,” said Steve DiChiaro, president of Liberty National’s Agency Division, in a statement. “Liberty National has sustained its place in the industry since 1900 because of the relentless pursuit of excellence by our independent agents and agency owners who help build our organization, give back to local communities where we have offices, and service our customers. We feel Richard Childress Racing is a great fit for our vision and values. This opportunity with RCR is a vehicle to expose and expand our brand to new audiences in 2018 and to reward our people and customers with once-in-a-lifetime experiences at the tracks. On behalf of our independent agents, agency owners, and policyholders, we look forward to seeing our logo on Ryan Newman’s car next year.”
Liberty National has been a primary sponsor on Trevor Bayne‘s No. 6 Ford for three races this season.
Newman qualified for the playoffs this season with a win at Phoenix. Newman is in his fourth season at Richard Childress Racing and has 18 career Cup victories.
