In a sport where sponsors are tougher and tougher to come by, Hendrick Motorsports (HMS) has found one that wants to expand its involvement. Great Clips will be appearing on Kasey Kahne’s No. 5 Chevrolet three times this season. The sponsor also plays a role on the Nationwide team of JR Motorsports, as well as, on the No. 5 car.

In 2014, Great Clips plans to expand its involvement with Hendrick Motorsports. Fox Sports first reported this week that Great Clips will be the primary sponsor of the No. 5 team for ten races in 2014. The report has not been confirmed by Great Clips or HMS at this time.

Meanwhile, Rick Hendrick, owner of HMS, says Dale Earnhardt Jr. is close to a new sponsor that will help support the team this season. The No. 88 team has looked for a third sponsor since the beginning of the season. Hendrick stated early this season that he wants to find the right deal for Dale Jr.

“We’ve had lots of interest,” Hendrick said. “But we’ve got something really nice that fits well. … This will be a pretty neat deal when we get to announce it.

“It’s never done until it’s done, but I think we’re in good shape.”
