Jayski is reporting that Stewart Haas Racing’s No. 14 car has emerged as the likely candidate to land Mobil 1 as a sponsor for 2011. If Mobil 1 signs with SHR to sponsor Tony Stewart and the No. 14 car, it will replace Old Spice, which announced it would be leaving the team at season’s end.
Mobil 1 was left looking for another team to sponsor after Penske Racing signed a deal with Shell Pennzoil to sponsor Kurt Busch next season.
SHR’s No. 39 will have the US Army and Tornado’s back on the car with part time schedules next season. They are currently in talks with Wix Filters about a partial sponsorship schedule next season.
