Nissan Motorsport has announced that lighting company Sengled will replace Jack Daniel’s as the primary sponsor of Rick Kelly’s #15 Altima.
Jack Daniel’s pulled out of V8 Supercars racing after a decade of sponsorship at the end of last season, leaving the Melbourne-based squad on the look-out for a new backer for Kelly’s car.
A strong hint was dropped on Monday at Winton when Kelly tested the car in a one-off livery featuring Sengled logos, the team now confirming both sponsor and livery ahead of the season-opener in Adelaide next week.
“With a new car and new livery, I am really excited to tackle the challenging Adelaide street circuit,” said Kelly.
“We’ve had great preparation coming into the season – something we haven’t always achieved – so I am really excited for the year ahead.”
