NASCAR Cup Series driver Denny Hamlin is coming off of one of his most dominant seasons yet, and he’ll look to continue his performance with the addition of a brand new sponsor to Joe Gibbs Racing.
Offerpad, an online provider in selling and purchasing homes, will join the three-time DAYTONA 500 champion in two races this season, adorning the No. 11 Toyota Camry at Phoenix (March 14th) and Charlotte’s “ROVAL” (October 10). FedEx will remain the anchor sponsor of the No. 11 team.
“Offerpad is excited to partner with Joe Gibbs Racing and drivers Denny Hamlin and Harrison Burton,” said Darrin Shamo, Chief Marketing Officer for Offerpad. “Like the winners on the Joe Gibbs team, Offerpad gets things done. We all operate with urgency to deliver the best experience possible to our customers and fans, whether it’s winning a race or helping them buy and sell a home.”
In addition to their two-race sponsorship of Hamlin’s No. 11, the company will sponsor Harrison Burton’s No. 20 Toyota Supra in four events this season at Talladega (April 24), Texas (June 12), Atlanta (July 10) and Daytona (August 27).
Hamlin – who boasts an impressive 44 NASCAR Cup Series victories — will look to become the first driver to win three consecutive Daytona 500’s when the series contests the 500-mile season-opener on February 14th.
The Chesterfield, VA native has been a model of consistency throughout his career with 280 top-ten and 179 top-five finishes in 542 starts. No driver has more wins in the Cup Series over the past two seasons than Hamlin’s 13.
“It’s always exciting to welcome a new partner into our sport and I’m thrilled to have Offerpad on board with us,” said Hamlin. “Unfortunately winning a race isn’t as easy as buying or selling a home using Offerpad, but hopefully we will have a chance to put them in Victory Lane right from the start.”
Harrison Burton enters his second full-time season at Joe Gibbs Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series after clinching Rookie of The Year in 2020, scoring four wins, 16 top-fives and 27 top-10s.
“The goal for our 20 team is to build off the momentum we had last year and having Offerpad come on board is just added incentive,” said Burton. “I can’t wait to get our season started.”
The paint scheme is stark departure from the traditional FedEx colors of purple and white of the past few seasons. The entire front half of the car will adorn the OfferPad Orange, before transitioning to white towards the rear.
The Toyota team sent fans on a frenzy over the past week, dropping emoji hints through social media. A video post to JGR’s Official Instagram suggests that OfferPad could also get some space on Harrison Burton’s No. 20 Supra in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.
