Below is a press release from Wilmington-based UniFirst:
WILMINGTON, MA — UniFirst Corporation, a North American leader in providing customized business uniform programs, facility service products, and first aid and safety services, in partnership with 14-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports, revealed the all-new race car paint scheme for the No. 9 UniFirst Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. The car will once again be piloted by NASCAR’s five-time Most Popular Driver and 2020 Cup Series champion Chase Elliott in three races during the 2023 season.
The dynamic new paint scheme will feature the company’s distinctive signature green color and logo designs accompanied by racing-inspired black and white accents on the car’s exterior. Elliott and the entire No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports race team will also sport fire suits that complement the new UniFirst car design and feature the company’s color and logo.
“I’m looking forward to another great year of partnership with UniFirst,” said Elliott. “We’ve had a lot of memorable moments together over the years and I’m excited for the fans to see the new paint scheme when we hit the track at Circuit of The Americas next month.”
Elliott continues to provide fans with excitement and finished out the 2022 season earning one of only four spots in the NASCAR Cup Series Championship 4 last November, his third consecutive year accomplishing the feat. Following last season, Elliott also garnered NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver award for the fifth consecutive year.
The No. 9 UniFirst Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 will debut on March 26 at Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas. It will later take to the track at Kansas Speedway on May 7 and July 30 at Richmond Raceway. UniFirst will also serve as an associate sponsor of the No. 9 car for all other races throughout the 2023 campaign.
“We’re loving the new 2023 paint scheme and excited to hit the track with Chase and the entire No. 9 team,” said David Katz, UniFirst Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re proud to partner with champions like Chase Elliott and Hendrick Motorsports and thank them for inspiring us to always deliver award winning uniform and facility services to our customers across the US and Canada.”
The 2023 NASCAR season marks the seventh year of UniFirst’s multi-year partnership with Hendrick Motorsports and the fourth year that the company will serve as a sponsor of Elliott and the No. 9 team.
