Freightliner - The Official Sponsored Hauler...sort of

Freightliner is saying they are the official sponsored hauler of Nascar. By transporting cars and equipment from race to race, managing logistics and hauling fuel and tires, they literally make NASCAR® happen. They’re the first to arrive and the last to leave the track.

This statement was brought to my attention by my Dad and I didn't think that sounded right because I could have sworn that SHR was using Peterbuilt. I was correct. It turns out that only six owners and their teams are using Freightliner and that is how Freightliner is getting away with that statement. They have 16 Sprint Cup Teams and 4 Nationwide Teams using their rigs. Small number when you think about the number of teams between the two racing series combined. Not a single truck team is listed.

They are from:
Hendrick
JGR
MWR
Penske
RCR
JTG Daugherty

Re: Freightliner - The Official Sponsored Hauler...sort of

It turns out that only six owners and their teams are using Freightliner and that is how Freightliner is getting away with that statement. Incorrect because.....

NASCAR’s “official partners” — the highest sponsorship level the sport’s sanctioning body offers

A company pays $$$$$ to be an "Official Sponsorof NASCAR". It isn't determined by who/how many teams use that product by the company. Even if only one team used Freightliner, the company has paid the $$$ to be the Official Sponsor. Peterbilt, even if they wanted to, couldn't become the official sponsor unless they did that with a different product.
Here is a list of the Official Sponsors for 2014

NASCAR Official Sponsors:
3M (Official Partner: Automotive Appearance Products)
5.11 Tactical (Official Tactical Apparel & Gear)
ACORE (An Official NASCAR Green Partner: Renewable Energy)
Affinity Road & Travel LLC-Good Sam (Official Partner: Roadside Assistance)
Bank of America (Official Bank)
Camping World (Official Outdoor and RV Retail Partner)
Canadian Tire (Official Automotive Retailer)
Chevrolet (Official: Automobiles)
Coca-Cola (Official Non-Alcoholic Beverage, Official Soft Drink, Official Sport Drink, Official Energy Drink)
Coors Light (Official Beer)
DRIVE4COPD (Official Health Initiative)
Exide (Official Auto Batteries)
FDP Friction Science (Official Brakes)
Featherlite Coaches (Official Trailer)
Featherlite Trailers (Official Trailer)
Ford (Official Partner: Automobiles)
Freescale (Official Automotive Semiconductors)
Freightliner (Official Big Rig, Official Hauler)
Goodyear (Official Tire)
Green Earth Technologies (An Official NASCAR Green Partner)
Growth Energy (Official Partner: American Corn-Based Ethanol)
Hewlett-Packard (An Official Technology Partner)
K&N (Official Partner: NASCAR K&N Pro Series)
Mars (Official Chocolate, Official Chocolate Bar)
McLaren Electronics Systems (Official Engine Control Unit Supplier)
Mobil 1 (Official Partner: Lubricant, Motor Oil, Gear Lube, Automotive Grease)
Mondelez [Kraft] (Official Cookies and Crackers)
National Corn Growers Association (Official Partner: Promoting the Interest of Corn Growers)
Nationwide Insurance (Official Auto, Home and Life Insurance)
New Holland (Official Partner: Agricultural Equipment)
Prevost (Official Luxury Motorcoach)
Safety-Kleen (Official Supplier: Automotive Waste Removal)
Sherwin Williams (Official Paint of NASCAR)
SIRIUS XM Radio (Official Satellite Radio Partner)
Sprint (Official Series Sponsor: Telecommunications)
Sunoco (Official Fuel and Official Convenience Store)
Toyota (Official Partner: Automobiles)
UPS (Official Delivery Service)
UTI (Official Partner: Automotive Education)
Visa (Official Card)
Whelen (Official Partner: Series Sponsor, Safety Lighting)

Tthe statement Freightliner uses is correct. Freightliner "is not getting away with it (as you say) they can use it in advertising or however they choose because they have paid NASCAR the money to be an "Official Sponsor of NASCAR".

How many of us remember the days when "the official ____________ of NASCAR" meant every team was using it, now in most cases it means you only have to use it if you want to.
