Roush Fenway Racing announced this morning that SunnyD — also known as Sunny Delight — will sponsor Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. in four Sprint Cup Series events and one XFINITY Series race this season.
The brand will first serve as the primary sponsor at Dover International Speedway for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism in May. Stenhouse will then compete with the scheme at Pocono, Indianapolis and Charlotte later in the season.
He will also race in the No. 60 SunnyD Ford Mustang in the November XFINITY Series race at Phoenix, marking the two-time series champion’s return to XFINITY competition.
This will be his first time racing in the series since 2013, when he competed at Texas Motor Speedway and finished 17th.
While SunnyD’s partnership is new for Stenhouse, this won’t be the first time the company has been a RFR sponsor. The brand appeared on Mark Martin’s decklid in 1990 when he battled Dale Earnhardt for the Cup championship.
