The UniFirst Corporation in partnership with 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports, is pleased to announce the reveal of an updated paint scheme for the 2019 No. 24 UniFirst Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 driven by 2018 Cup rookie of the year William Byron.
UniFirst will be the primary sponsor of the car for three races in the 2019 NASCAR season. The refreshed paint features cutting edge graphic designs with the company’s signature green and white colors, black accenting, and UniFirst’s corporate logo.
The car will make its debut at Kansas Speedway on Saturday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. ET, on FOX Sports 1 (FS1). The next race for UniFirst will take place at Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday, Sept. 29, at 2:30 p.m. ET, televised on NBC. The third race will be at Kansas on Sunday, Oct. 20, at 2:30 p.m. ET, televised on NBC.
UniFirst and Hendrick Motorsports announced an eight-year partnership back in 2016 that will run through the 2023 NASCAR season. UniFirst is also the official workwear provider of Hendrick Motorsports, supplying clothing and uniforms to the team.
“UniFirst and our thousands of employee Team Partners around the world are ready for another great season of NASCAR with William Byron and our No. 24 car, which has a slightly different look than last season,” said Adam Soreff, director of marketing and communications for UniFirst. “Our race car is looking better than ever. We’re also very proud of our driver, William Byron, who claimed the 2018 rookie of the year title and will start from the coveted pole position on Sunday at Daytona. All of his UniFirst fans are excited to cheer him on as he enters his sophomore year of racing in the Cup Series.”
“I’m excited to have UniFirst back on our No. 24 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1,” Byron remarked. “It’s a really clean paint scheme with colors that always stand out on track. It’s definitely a great-looking race car. Last year we had UniFirst on the car for a couple of our best runs, and I’m excited to see what we can do this year when they’re onboard.”
The 2019 NASCAR season begins Sunday, Feb. 17 with the 61st running of the Daytona 500 (2:30 p.m. ET on FOX) where Byron will start from the pole position. At 21 years old, he is the second-youngest driver ever to earn the pole for “The Great American Race.”
