Sherwin-Williams Boosts Investment In Sport, Becomes ‘Official Paint Of NASCAR’

In addition to signing on as an Official NASCAR Partner, Sherwin-Williams also becomes a contingency sponsor in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Touring & Weekly Series and GRAND-AM Road Racing.

NASCAR and Sherwin-Williams have announced a multi-year partnership designating the Sherwin-Williams as the "Official Paint of NASCAR."

In addition to signing on as an Official NASCAR Partner, Sherwin-Williams also becomes a contingency sponsor in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Touring & Weekly Series and GRAND-AM Road Racing. The NASCAR and GRAND-AM contingency programs foster strong relationships between competitors and the high-quality, performance-driven brands that are part of the program, by providing prize money for each race and at the end of each racing season. Competitors become eligible for the money by displaying partner decals on their race vehicles. As part of the contingency program, Sherwin-Williams will be title sponsor of the Fastest Lap Award in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.

"The Sherwin-Williams Co. is thrilled to be the ‘Official Paint of NASCAR.’ We have invested in the sport at the team level since 2000, sponsoring about 85 percent of the teams in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series," said Chris Connor, chairman and CEO, The Sherwin-Williams Co. "With more than 3,500 stores nationwide, this comprehensive official partnership will enable us to connect with our wide customer base across the country and to truly partner with NASCAR at every track."

As part of this integrated partnership, Sherwin-Williams joins the NASCAR Fuel for Business Council, which brings together an exclusive group of more than 60 official NASCAR partners four times per year to buy and sell products and services from one another. This exclusive business-to-business environment offers unique opportunities for many Fortune 500 companies to bypass the time and layers of corporate coordination that may exist to construct customized deals that help address specific business needs. 

"Sherwin-Williams is a category leader and innovative marketer that we’re proud to add to our family of Official NASCAR Partners," said Jim O’Connell, NASCAR chief sales officer. "Joining dozens of other blue-chip brands with official status, the company has a rich history in NASCAR and understands how to utilize our sport to drive its business."

Research from a 2012 fan engagement study commissioned by NASCAR and conducted by Toluna shows that nearly half of all NASCAR fans agree that when they see a company using the tagline of "Official Sponsor of NASCAR" in its advertising, they are more likely to consider purchasing its products or services.

The next NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race will be the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m. on SPEED, Motor Racing Network Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio.
