Mavis Tires & Brakes has joined forces with Joe Gibbs Racing to serve as the primary sponsor of Denny Hamlin’s No. 11 Toyota Camry TRD in five of the next six NASCAR Cup Series events, starting this weekend at New Hampshire.
In addition to the company’s debut this weekend at New Hampshire, Hamlin, a 49-time winner in the NASCAR Cup Series, will carry the brightly-colored design at Pocono Raceway (July 23), Richmond Raceway (July 30), Michigan International Speedway (August 6), and Watkins Glen International (August 20).
“It is an incredible honor to team up with NASCAR, the largest spectator sport in America, and Joe Gibbs Racing with Denny Hamlin,” said David Sorbaro, Mavis co-CEO. “This union is a perfect fit – as the largest independent tire and vehicle service in the U.S., we are thrilled at the possibilities our partnership can bring.”
The company, which is based in Millwood, New York, is the largest independent tire and service provider in the United States with more than 850 service centers in 22 states. Mavis recently acquired TBC Corporation’s NTB Service Centers and Tire Kingdom Service Centers, which yields more than 2,000 service centers under the brand umbrella in total.
“Mavis was founded on value, excellent customer service, and family,” said Stephen Sorbaro, Mavis co-CEO. “This is an exciting partnership that complements our dedication to the automotive industry and our connection to communities and neighborhoods around the country. We look forward to a great season with our customers and the Mavis family cheering on No. 11 for a win.”
This season, Hamlin has accumulated one victory at Kansas Speedway, alongside five top-five and seven top-10 results, which have placed him in sixth place in the NASCAR Cup Series point standings.
Of the five venues in which Mavis will adorn the No. 11 Toyota Camry, Hamlin has picked up a total of 16 victories (six at Pocono, three at Loudon, two at Michigan, four at Richmond, and one at Watkins Glen).
