Roush Fenway Racing and partner Fastenal are in it for the long haul, with both parties confirming the news that Fastenal has extended their partnership with RFR through the 2024 season.
“For more than 10 years Fastenal has been one of the cornerstones of our partner lineup and we are thrilled to have them continue their long-standing commitment to Roush Fenway and the No. 17 team,” said Roush Fenway president Steve Newmark. “During our partnership, Fastenal has not only created impactful motorsports marketing programs, but they have been instrumental in helping us maximize our build process with tailored solutions to our supply chain and inventory management controls.”
Fastenal and RFR have enjoyed a winning partnership since 2010, serving as the primary sponsor for Buescher’s 2015 Xfinity Series championship.
“Our partnership with Roush Fenway Racing is a lot more than just putting our name on a car; it’s a relationship with an organization we respect and an opportunity to showcase our brand and culture,” said Dan Florness, Fastenal’s president and CEO. “We look forward to many years of future success as we continue the tradition.”
RFR has been in the news quite heavily this week, with rumors circulating that Brad Keselowski could move over to the No. 6 car in 2022 and take a co-ownership role of the organization. The report from Motorsport.com alleges that a new name for the team, dubbed Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing, would follow into 2022. Roush Fenway Racing, and Penske Racing both declined to comment.
Buescher currently sits in 14th in points in playoff contention with three top 10 finishes thus far in 2021.
