Lowe’s Renews With Hendrick Motorsports, Johnson

johnson1 [1]Hendrick Motorsports announced that Lowe’s Companies Inc has renewed its sponsorship of the No. 48 Sprint Cup Series team and five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson. Lowe’s has extended to 2015.

Tom Lamb, Lowe’s chief marketing officer, said:

It has been a great ride with Jimmie since he started in the Cup Series 12 years ago. We are proud to sponsor one of the most elite teams and drivers in racing and have a five-time champion carry the Lowe’s brand each week.

Johnson said:

Lowe’s believed in me before I had any success. They are all I’ve ever known in my Sprint Cup career, and their support of me and the No. 48 team is second to none in the sport. We’ve been together for this crazy ride, and I’m so happy we’re continuing it together. They truly are family, and I’m proud to represent them.

Rick Hendrick added:

We caught lightning in a bottle with this combination. Jimmie and Chad have been successful because they always have a plan and do a great job executing. Lowe’s is the same way as a sponsor. The partnership has been incredible, and we’re looking forward to working together for many more years.
