Trevor Bayne picks up new sponsor for 2017 season

Roush Fenway Racing announced Trevor Bayne will have an additional primary sponsor for the 2017 NASCAR season.

Liberty National Life Insurance Company has partnered with RFR and the No. 6 team to serve as a primary team partner, joining anchor sponsor Advocare.

“We are excited to have Liberty National on board next season,” said Bayne. “They are an extremely well respected brand that has been providing valuable services since 1900. It’s the kind of brand that we are proud to have an association with and I can’t wait to see the No. 6 Liberty National Ford on track. Our goal is to put our car up front and compete for race wins.”

The life insurance company will also serve as a major associate partner for multiple races next year.

“Liberty National views this new partnership with Roush Fenway Racing as the opportunity of a lifetime,” said Liberty National President, Steve DiChiaro. “We look forward to cheering on Trevor Bayne as he drives the Liberty National car to Victory Lane in 2017.”

The announcement comes a day after RFR revealed it will scale back to a two-car team next season with Bayne and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. following Greg Biffle’s departure.

The No. 6 Liberty National Ford Fusion will make its debut in the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway on March 5.
