Guaranteed Rate will extend their partnership with Ryan Newman and Roush Fenway Racing, as a primary sponsor of the team’s No. 6 entry in a total of eight events over the course of the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season, beginning with the Busch Clash on February 9th on Daytona’s Road Course.
“We are excited to have Guaranteed Rate back on our Ford this season,” said Newman, who boasts 18 wins in the NASCAR Cup Series. “They came on board last year and were really a strong presence for our team down the stretch. They are a great group to work with and I look forward to building on the program in 2021.”
Newman’s No. 6 Guaranteed Rate Ford Mustang will be seen in seven points paying races – in addition to the Busch Clash — next season, at Martinsville (April 10), Dover (May 16), Circuit of The Americas (May 23), Pocono (June 27), New Hampshire (July 18), Richmond (September 11) and Las Vegas (September 26).
“We are very happy to announce that Guaranteed Rate will return in 2021 and continue to serve as a primary partner with Ryan Newman and the No. 6 Ford,” said team president Steve Newmark. “Since joining the team in July of 2020, Guaranteed Rate launched a robust marketing campaign around the partnership that saw great fan response. The high level of engagement from our fanbase is a testament to their brand and the quality of their products and services. We look forward to continuing to expand the partnership in 2021 and beyond, and jointly offering creative programs to our fans.”
Guaranteed Rate – one of the largest retail mortgage lenders in the United States — joined Roush Fenway Racing’s No. 6 team as a primary sponsor mid-way through last season, later signing on to become the primary sponsor of Newman’s Ford Mustang in 11 of the final 14 events.
“Our launch into NASCAR this past season was a huge success,” said Guaranteed Rate Chief Marketing Officer Steve Moffat. “Ryan Newman and the Roush Fenway Team are true professionals and outstanding partners. Ryan set some big goals for 2021, and we at Guaranteed Rate share that same competitive spirit and focus on winning.”
Ryan Newman enters his 20th season as a full-time competitor in the NASCAR Cup Series and his third behind the wheel of the No.6 for Roush Fenway Racing. The South Bend, Indiana-native has scored a total of 18 wins at NASCAR’s top-level, including the 2008 DAYTONA 500.
