CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Fastenal will sponsor Carl Edwards for 17 races in the Sprint Cup Series beginning next season.
Edwards signed a contract extension last month with Roush Fenway Racing, and the team immediately went to work looking for sponsorship for one of NASCAR's most marketable drivers. Aflac is currently Edwards' primary sponsor, but the insurance company has not said yet if it will return next season.
Fastenal has had a relationship with Edwards since 1999 and has been the primary sponsor for him in the Nationwide Series the last two seasons.
Fastenal is a fastener distributor and supplier for the industrial and construction industry.
Terms on the deal announced Thursday were not released. Roush Fenway said only its a multiyear deal.
