This is not the first time Fastenal has sponsored the RFR fleet. Last year all three RFR Nationwide Series Fords displayed the Fastenal colors at the Charlotte race in May. The Blue Team placed first (Kenseth), second (Edwards) and fourth (Ricky Stenhouse Jr.).
“As a sponsor, it doesn’t get any better than this," said Cory Jansen, Fastenal’s executive vice president, operations. “Not only are we the primary for three legitimate championship contenders, but we’ll be helping Roush Fenway Racing shine a spotlight on our military and their families. It’s going to be a huge honor to see the No. 99, the No. 17 and the No. 16 covered from spoiler to splitter in red, white and blue."
“NASCAR Unites – An American Salute" is a patriotic initiative uniting the NASCAR industry and fans this summer to celebrate America and support U.S. military families.
“I’m thrilled to be part of a sport that does so much to support the military and their families," said Edwards. “It’s an honor to support ‘NASCAR Unites – An American Salute,’ and display the red, white and blue on the Fastenal cars. I know all my teammates and I look forward to showing appreciation for those who serve our country."
