Denny Hamlin: Sport Clips Sponsorship

Update: Joe Gibbs Racing announced the renewal of Sport Clips Haircuts as the primary sponsor for a total of nine races with Hamlin during the 2013 NASCAR season, joegibbsracing.com reports.

Recommendation: Sport Clips continues to expand their sponsorship efforts in NASCAR, and by expanding their Cup exposure with Hamlin they'll get a lot of attention. The Joe Gibbs Racing star is a race-winner and championship contender, so the nine events this company has picked up on the No. 11 Toyota will be great exposure. Hamlin won at Atlanta Motor Speedway last season with Sport Clips as primary sponsor, so its already a winning combination.
