TriStar Motorsports announces Rinnai, the number-one selling brand of tankless water heater in the U.S. and Canada, has committed to serve as the primary sponsor of the No. 72 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series entry with driver Cole Whitt for this weekend's race at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Their primary sponsorship will also include Las Vegas Motor Speedway and the second race at New Hampshire Speedway in addition to an associate sponsorship placement for all other races for the remainder of the 2017 season.
Whitt competed last week in the Monster Energy Cup Series season opener at Daytona International Speedway where he secured an 18th place finish for the No. 72. Crew Chief Frank Kerr and the No. 72 team will unload Chassis No. 2003 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Whitt will make his fourth Monster Energy Cup Series start at the 1.5-mile quad oval located in Hampton, GA.
"I'm looking forward to having Rinnai back with us for this season", said Whitt. "We've had an ongoing relationship for years and appreciate their continued support."
"Rinnai is proud to continue our partnership with Cole Whitt and Tristar Motor Sports," said Frank Windsor, Chief Operating Officer of Rinnai America Corporation. "We look forward to another exciting year of racing."
