Primary Sponsor for Jones for Six Races in 2019
HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (February 1, 2019) – Setting the stage for The Great American Race, Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) announced today that Sport Clips will join Erik Jones and the No. 20 Toyota Camry team as the primary sponsor for the Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday, February 17, 2019. Debuting a special scheme for the Daytona 500, Sport Clips will feature the Sport Clips app on the No. 20 Toyota Camry.
Sport Clips Haircuts has launched a new mobile app that makes check-in for a haircare service faster and easier. The app offers check in, information about wait times, the choice of a favorite store and preferred stylist, and the ability to set personal reminders for the next MVP Experience.
“We are excited to have Erik once again represent Sport Clips in the NASCAR Cup Series. It’s been fun to work with Erik as he has developed into one of the sport’s premier drivers,” said Gordon Logan, founder and CEO of Sport Clips. “Our partnership with NASCAR and Joe Gibbs Racing goes back many years and Erik is a great representative for Sport Clips, NASCAR and JGR. Our franchisees and clients are huge NASCAR fans and we can’t wait to see Erik repeat his July win at Daytona and continue that success throughout the season.”
A longtime partner of JGR, Sport Clips first partnered with Jones in 2015 at Talladega Superspeedway in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Continuing to sponsor Jones in the Xfinity Series, Sport Clips made the move with Jones to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series in 2017 during his rookie season. This season will mark the third year Sport Clips has partnered with Jones in the Cup Series.
“Sport Clips has been a great partner for me over the years, all the way back to 2015,” said Jones. “It’s really neat to watch their growth and to have them now sponsor our car for the Daytona 500. Gordon (Logan, CEO and Founder) is such a passionate race fan and supporter of our sport. I’ve really enjoyed representing Sport Clips over the years and what better way to kick off our 2019 season than getting them to victory lane at Daytona. That would be pretty cool and we’re going to do our best to make that happen.”
The 2019 season will mark Sport Clips 11th season partnering with JGR. During their 10 year relationship, Sport Clips has been teamed up with multiple drivers including Jones, Denny Hamlin, Carl Edwards and Joey Logano.
