Danica Patrick’s No. 10 Chevrolet SS will see Aspen Dental livery for 2 races in 2014
Aspen Dental has stepped in as primary sponsor of the No. 10 team of Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) for two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races beginning in 2014. Danica Patrick will be seen in the seat of a new blue-and-white No. 10 Aspen Dental Chevrolet SS on March 9 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and Aug. 31 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.
For other races, Aspen Dentalas associate sponsor will be visible on the B-post and lower-rear quarter panel of the No. 10 Chevrolet, with additional placement on the upper chest of Patrick’s uniform.
“The addition of a new partner to the No. 10 Chevrolet is a big milestone for me, and I feel fortunate to have Aspen Dental join GoDaddy beginning in 2014,” Patrick said. “I was in Syracuse a few weeks ago to meet the Aspen team and was impressed by their commitment to making sure people have access to quality oral health care. I’m proud to team up with Aspen Dental and shine a spotlight on a part of health care that doesn’t get a lot of attention.”
“We’ve been proud to be a part of the Stewart-Haas Racing family for the past two years and are thrilled to team up with Danica,” said Bob Fontana, president and CEO of Aspen Dental Management, Inc. “As part of our mission to give America a healthy mouth, we’re dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of oral health care, and Danica’s connection with racing fans will help us turn up the volume on that conversation.”
“Danica is incredibly focused and driven to succeed, and that includes delivering for her partners,” said Tony Stewart, who co-owns SHR with Haas Automation founder Gene Haas. “She’ll be a great ambassador for Aspen Dental, and Stewart-Haas Racing will continue to help Aspen Dental remain one of the most successful and progressive organizations in dentistry.”
GoDaddy continues to serve as primary sponsor for Patrick and the No. 10 team at all other Sprint Cup races. In February 2013, Patrick won the pole for the Daytona 500. She’s the first woman to win a pole, and her eighth-place finish is the highest finishing position for a woman in the “Great American Race”. Herleading laps in Daytona 500, make her one of only 13 drivers who have led both the Daytona 500 and the Indianapolis 500.
