Auto-Owners Insurance expands sponsorship with Furniture Row Racing
Auto-Owners Insurance has agreed to double its sponsorship with Furniture Row Racing’s No. 78 Toyota and driver Martin Truex Jr. for the next two seasons.
The Fortune 500 company, which joined FRR in 2016 as a primary sponsor for three races, will adorn the No. 78 in six races in both 2017 and 2018.
Auto-Owners Insurance, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016, provides auto, home, life and business coverage through local, independent agents in 26 states. The company is based in Lansing, Mich.
The six races the company will sponsor this season are Kansas (May 13), Michigan (June 18), Indianapolis (July 23), Richmond (Sept. 9), Charlotte (Oct. 7) and Phoenix (Nov. 12).
“We want to give Auto-Owners Insurance more success as we look forward to the 2017 season,” Truex said. “I was able to visit the Auto-Owners Insurance headquarters in Lansing and came away feeling proud to be associated with a company that has had 100 years of success.”
