Roush Fenway Racing announced Wednesday a multi-year extension with Wyndham Rewards to serve as a primary sponsor on the No. 6 Ford driven by Ryan Newman in the NASCAR Cup Series.
The hotel rewards program has been a sponsor of the team since 2018. In 2019, it was a primary sponsor on Newman’s car in 10 races.
Its first race on the No. 6 in 2020 will be Feb. 23 at Las Vegas.
“It’s great to have Wyndham Rewards back on board,” Newman said in a press release. “They will be on the car at Las Vegas and hopefully we can reward them with a strong run and a trip to victory lane.”
Newman is entering his second season with Roush Fenway Racing. He made the playoffs last year before finishing 15th in the standings.
Roush Fenway Racing has announced an expansion of its partnership with Wyndham Rewards and a new sponsor deal ahead of the 2019 Cup season.
Roush announced Friday a new partnership with Acorns, a mobile-first financial wellness technology system.
The company will be on Ryan Newman‘s No. 6 Ford for multiple races, beginning with the Feb. 24 race at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
“Winning is everything to me, it’s what drives me to become a champion in our sport,” Newman said in a press release. “I came from humble beginnings; my father was an auto mechanic who wanted to race but never had the chance to do so. He taught me to invest in myself and never stop growing. I’m excited to represent a company like Acorns that is encouraging all Americans to invest in their future. With the support of like-minded individuals, I hope we can share our successes on and off the race track this season.”
On Thursday, Roush announced an expansion of its partnership with the Wyndham Rewards membership program, who joined the team in 2018.
After sponsoring the No. 6 in eight races with Matt Kenseth, Wyndham Rewards will be on the No. 6 in 10 races this seasons, starting with Sunday’s Advance Auto Parts Clash.
Both announcements follow the news from January that Oscar Mayer would sponsor Newman in “a number of races” beginning with the March race in Phoenix. Oscar Mayer sponsored Kenseth in last year’s Southern 500.
Matt Kenseth‘s schedule for Roush Fenway Racing is starting to take shape.
NBC Sports’ Nate Ryan reported this week that Kenseth will drive the next five races — this weekend at Kansas Speedway, followed by the Monster Energy All-Star Race (May 19), the Coca-Cola 600 (May 27), Pocono (June 3) and Michigan (June 10).
Roush Fenway Racing announced additional dates for Kenseth on Thursday with Wyndham Rewards as sponsor.
Those races with Wyndham Rewards will be Kansas, the Coca-Cola 600, Michigan, Indianapolis (Sept. 9), Dover (Oct. 7), Phoenix (Nov. 11) and Miami (Nov. 18).
Roush Fenway Racing previously announced that Kenseth would share the No. 6 ride with Trevor Bayne. He is expected to run in the races with AdvoCare as the sponsor. The next races AdvoCare will be the primary sponsor are June 24 at Sonoma and July 1 at Chicagoland Speedway.
