SPARTA, Ky. (AP) -- Joe Gibbs Racing has announced a contract extension for driver Matt Kenseth and Dollar General's expanded sponsorship of his No. 20 Toyota Camry.
The discount store chain will sponsor the car for 30 races in 2015 including the season-opening Daytona 500. That's up from 27 events this year and 17 in 2013.
Dollar General chairman Rick Dreiling said Saturday that Kenseth's success with JGR and his appeal made it easy to expand the company's involvement, calling him "great for our brand." Both announcements pleased Kenseth, who said his relationships with the team and sponsor "has been a great fit for me."
Kenseth entered Saturday night's race at Kentucky Speedway winless this season but fourth in points. Last June's win here was among seven en route to a runner-up points finish.
