3M leaving Roush team for Hendrick Team (Update)

UPDATE This rumor is upgraded to 'fact' now. Jeff Gordon will have 3M as a primary sponsor of his No. 24 Chevrolet for 11 Sprint Cup races starting next season.

Hendrick Motorsports announced the deal, which includes an associate sponsorship, as covering the 2015-2017 seasons. Last week, the team announced the AARP Foundation's Drive to End Hunger would return as a primary sponsor for 13 races in 2015. The car also has primary sponsorship from Pepsi and Axalta.

"At 3M, we play to win, and we push hard every day to do just that," Jesse Singh, senior vice president, 3M Global Sales and Marketing, said in a team release. "With this deal, we align with champion driver Jeff Gordon and an organization at the top of its game in Hendrick Motorsports. What they do in the garage and on the track exemplifies what we're all about in our labs, plants and business teams around the world."

08/12/14 According to AR1.com sources, Roush Fenway sponsor 3M for Greg Biffle's car, will be leaving the team. We do not know if they will be moving to another team, perhaps a Chevy team, where they have a real chance to win a lot of races.
