KANNAPOLIS, N.C. – Aric Almirola will have new colors aboard the No. 10 Ford Mustang, with the addition of insurance agency Renegade.
Renegade will make its debut with the Stewart-Haas Racing driver beginning with this weekend’s event at Kansas Speedway, adorning the roof of the car. Renegade’s first race as a primary sponsor of Almirola and the No. 10 team will be Sept. 3-4 during the Southern 500 race weekend at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway.
“NASCAR is a fast-paced sport and Renegade embodies that expeditious need for change in the insurance industry for our agents, customer and carrier partners,” said Rashik Adhikari, founder and CEO, Renegade. “We’ve partnered with Stewart-Haas Racing to help tell our story.
“Insurance agents continue to face challenges. On one hand, you have captive agents who are exclusive to one insurance company and, on the other hand, you have independent agencies who struggle with technology, customer service and alignment with their carrier partners. As a result, the status quo has insurance agents who can’t maximize their potential and customers who don’t get the choice, expertise and service they deserve from their agents. This status quo, however, needs to change – fast and reliably. Renegade facilitates this change with speed, efficiency and accuracy – the same winning mentality Stewart-Haas Racing brings to the track.”
“This is my 11th full-time season in the NASCAR Cup Series, but it never gets old bringing a new partner into the sport,” said Almirola, a three-time race winner in the NASCAR Cup Series. “Renegade is an ambitious company that is striving for the same thing we are – to be the best and deliver results. It’s an honor to have them on my racecar.”
