The vice president of sports marketing for Anheuser-Busch told ESPN.com that A-B has signed a multi-year extension to continue its longstanding tradition as sponsor of the season-opening Budweiser Shootout at Daytona.
No final decision has been made regarding Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s future team sponsor at Hendrick Motorsports, but one is expected within the month and possibly within the next two weeks, multiple sources close to the negotiations said Monday.
Ginn Racing is still trying to recover from a year of amazing growth. Team CEO Jay Frye said that means trying to figure out what 200 employees actually do as well as trying to line up much-needed sponsors, writes Marty Smith.
Jeff Gordon said Thursday at Lowe's Motor Speedway that until he saw Martin's ability to compete for victories in a part-time deal, with legitimate sponsorship intact, he wasn't seriously considering it as an option.
Sources close to Robert Yates Racing told ESPN.com Friday that Mars Corp. will sponsor both Yates Nextel Cup teams next season, and team president Doug Yates, contacted via phone in North Carolina, said "there could be something to that, yes."
