(NYSE: TXT) company, to sponsor cars across all three series in which CGRT competes. The world’s leading general aviation company will sponsor multiple races on the No. 1 Chevrolet SS of Jamie McMurray in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series (NSCS) sharing assets with sister Textron companies Bell Helicopter and E-Z-GO golf cars and light transportation vehicles. Cessna will also sponsor one race on the No. 10 Honda with Dario Franchitti in the IZOD IndyCar Series in addition to this weekend’s race with Pruett and Rojas in the No. 01 Cessna Dinan-Prepared BMW/Riley.

• About the Partnership: In addition to the full primary sponsorships, a Textron brand has placement on every team, race car, driver uniform and transporter, across all of CGRT’s diverse reach of racing assets.
