NSCS: Rinnai Expands Partnership with Whitt

Company Joins No. 35 Team for Four More Races

STATESVILLE, N.C. (October 2, 2015) – Rinnai Tankless Water Heaters will expand its partnership with Front Row Motorsports and Cole Whitt, joining the team as co-primary sponsor for Sunday’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover (Del.) International Speedway and as primary sponsor for the Oct. 10 race at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway. The company will also be an associate sponsor for the season-ending races at Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway and Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway.

Rinnai, the number-one selling brand of tankless water heaters in the U.S. and Canada, has already served as a primary or associate partner on Whitt’s No. 35 for six races in the 2015 season, including at the Peachtree City, Ga.-based company’s home track of Atlanta Motor Speedway.

“Rinnai has been a great partner and they’re really taking advantage of the opportunities that NASCAR can offer,” Whitt said. “They’ve made new relationships since joining the sport and have grown their business as a result. I’m proud of that and I hope to see it keep going in that direction.”

“We’ve really enjoyed working with Rinnai,” said team owner Bob Jenkins. “Their partnership with us as a race team has grown, and they’ve also made new relationships with other business partners of ours looking to take advantage of the efficiencies that Rinnai products can provide. We look forward to having them at the racetrack with us for four more races this year.”

Sunday’s race in Dover will air live on the NBC Sports Network. The Charlotte, Phoenix and Homestead races will air live on NBC.
