Circle Sport - Leavine Family Racing (CSLFR) has announced a new partner for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Phoenix International Raceway as ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient semiconductor innovations, will be the primary colors on the No. 95 Chevrolet SS driven by Michael McDowell.
