Mountain Dew will continue as a sponsor of Hendrick Motorsports and Chase Elliott through 2020, the team announced Wednesday.

The soft drink will be a primary sponsor of Elliott’s No. 9 Chevrolet in four races each of the next two seasons.

It has sponsored Elliott this year in The Clash at Daytona, at Bristol and Michigan and will return to the No. 9 on Oct. 21 at Kansas Speedway. Elliott enters Saturday’s Cup race at Kentucky Speedway (7:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN) 15th in the standings.

PepsiCo, which is behind Mountain Dew, has been a partner of Hendrick Motorsports since 1997 when it began sponsoring Jeff Gordon with Pepsi.

Before Elliott, Mountain Dew sponsored Dale Earnhardt Jr. from 2008-2017.
