This weekend’s Ford 400 marks the first time Kimberly-Clark will sponsor a NASCAR Nextel Cup entry. The company, which has been a sponsor in the Busch Series for 13 years, features all of its brands on the NBS #27 Brewco Motorsports Kleenex Ford. In three Cup starts at Homestead, Atwood has two top-10 finishes. Over those three races, his average starting position is sixth place. Atwood has 75 starts in Nextel Cup competition.
The Associate Sponsor on the #95 Ford is Sam’s Club, the nation’s largest warehouse club with more than 49 million members nationwide. Atwood’s top finish at Homestead came in only his second Nextel Cup start at the speedway in the 2001 race, where he started second and finished third, leading 52 laps along the way.
“I’m also excited to be the first person to drive a Cup car for Kimberly-Clark. They’ve been such a great sponsor in the Busch Series for so long. We appreciate their support there and now here in the Cup race, so we’ll do everything we can to get the #95 Scott Shop Towels Ford in victory lane this Sunday.”
