Fastenal to sponsor Edwards for 15 Nationwide races in 2010 Roush Fenway Racing says that Fastenal has agreed to a multiyear contract to sponsor driver Carl Edwards in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, beginning in 2010.
Fastenal, an industrial supplier billed as one of North America’s largest fastener distributors, will appear on the No. 60 Ford for 15 races next season.
The sponsor leaves JR Motorsports, where it has been one of several rotating primary sponsors on the No. 5 Chevrolet in the Nationwide Series in 2009.
"I'm really excited about the partnership with Fastenal,” said Edwards, the 2007 series champion. “It's special to me, because in 1999 the local Fastenal store in Columbia, Mo., was nice enough to let me bring in one of my first sponsorship proposals that I had ever given to anyone. They met with me and they treated me like a professional, and I worked out a sponsorship deal with them. I used their storage bins, fasteners, drill bits and rivets for years on all my dirt cars. We won two track championships.
“I was really proud of that first sponsorship, and I am proud to be back with them in the Nationwide Series. That's going to be neat." Scenedaily
