Stewart-Haas Racing has announced that Quicken Loans will be joining the team aboard the No. 39 of Ryan Newman. Quicken Loans is new to NASCAR and is one of several new sponsors that team owner Tony Stewart has brought to SHR.

"They’re new to the sport and we aim to make their entry into NASCAR a positive one that will grow their business, and ultimately, grow their involvement within the sport and Stewart-Haas Racing,” said Stewart.

Quicken Loans will serve as a primary sponsor for Newman for nine races in 2012. The company will also be an associate sponsor for Newman and Tony Stewart for the entire season.

"It’s an honor to represent the U.S. Army and it’s great to have Quicken Loans join our team, because now we can do even more to help active Soldiers and veterans alike," said Newman, winner of the 2003 Sprint Cup race at Texas. "There’s such a parallel between what we do in NASCAR and what our Soldiers do. They go to battle, and their only goal is to win. To partner with a company as engaged with the military as SHR is something that makes us all very proud."

Tony Stewart also announced that both the U.S. Army and Tornados are coming back on Newman's car next season, but reported they've cut back "a few races."

To start off their partnership, Newman’s car will carry a special paint scheme this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway highlighting the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic.

The Quicken Loans Carrier Classic pits the No. 1 North Carolina Tarheels against the Michigan State Spartans in an unprecedented season-opener to the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball schedule, as the game will be played on the flight deck of the U.S.S. Carl Vinson on Nov. 11, 2011 – Veterans Day. The game will be held at Naval Base Coronado in the San Diego Harbor in front of 7,000 military personnel and spectators while being televised live on ESPN at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST.
