Great Clips has signed a deal with the Hendrick Motorsports Nascar team that will see the salon brand serve as a co-primary sponsor of Kasey Kahne at Texas Motor Speedway.

Minneapolis-based Great Clips will assume the primary role for Kahne’s No.5 Chevrolet alongside Hendrickcars.com in the 4th November Sprint Cup race.

Terri Miller, vice president of marketing and communications at Great Clips, said: “Great Clips has been affiliated with Kasey throughout his career, and we could not be more proud to run our first Sprint Cup race with him. It is a privilege to be associated with the Hendrick Motorsports team, as they truly share the values of our company.”

The deal marks Great Clips’ first involvement in Nascar’s top racing series, although the company has been associated with Kahne since 2003.

“After working with Great Clips for almost 10 years, it’s awesome to see them step up to Sprint Cup and continue their long-term commitment to the sport,” said Kahne, who is currently fifth in the overall driver standings.

“They were on the car for my first Nascar win, and they have been involved with nearly everything that I do, from my sprint car teams to my foundation. It will be a great addition to have them on board with Hendrick Motorsports and the No.5 team at Texas.”
