The company first joined with Elliott during his 2014 NASCAR Xfinity Series championship season and continued with him through his transition to the Cup Series.
“We’ve had an incredible run with NAPA, and I know we’re just scratching the surface of what’s possible,” said Rick Hendrick in a team release. “Chase has immense talent, is extremely popular with fans and has proven that he can win races and challenge for championships. There’s no limit to what he, [Crew Chief] Alan [Gustafson] and the No. 9 team can accomplish together. We couldn’t do it without NAPA and look forward to continuing the tremendous relationship with their whole group.”
Elliott has five wins, 33 top fives and 65 top 10s in the Xfinity Series. He also has six wins, 44 top fives and 74 top 10s in the Cup Series.
“NAPA constantly shows how committed they are to not only the success of their business but to the success of our team and Hendrick Motorsports as a whole,” Elliott said. “I’m so thankful for everything they’ve done for me since 2014. I get the chance to meet NAPA employees across the country throughout the NASCAR season, and to be able to represent all of them week in and week out is truly an honor. We look forward to having them on board for the years ahead.”
NAPA’s first race as a primary sponsor this season will be the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb. 16, at 2:30 p.m. ET. Television coverage will be provided by FOX.
