After a successful first season with Kyle Larson and the No. 42 team, Credit One Bank, the Official Credit Card of NASCAR, will expand the relationship with Chip Ganassi Racing by Chevrolet for the 2018 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season.
Credit One Bank’s multi-year deal will kick off with the 2018 season-opening Daytona 500, which will be the 60th running of the Great American Race. In addition to the Daytona 500, Credit One Bank will serve as the primary sponsor for Larson, who will be in his fifth full-time season in NASCAR’s premier series, and the No. 42 team throughout the 2018 season.

“Credit One Bank is thrilled to continue our partnership with Chip Ganassi Racing, the No. 42 team and Kyle Larson by becoming the leading team sponsor, said Laura Faulkner, VP of Marketing Communications of Credit One Bank. “Through this relationship, we are able share the Credit One Bank NASCAR credit card benefits with millions of race fans. We look forward to seeing the No. 42 Credit One Bank Chevrolet Camaro during the Daytona 500 and other additional races in 2018.”
With four victories in 2017, Larson greatly added to his career win total in the MENCS, and with eight runner-up finishes he has also bested his previous high in that category (three), which he achieved in 2014 and 2016. Two of those runner-up finishes came while driving the Credit One Bank Chevrolet. Larson rounded out the year with 15 top-five finishes, with only three of those finishes not being a first or second-place result. Larson’s strong season netted him a career-best eighth-place finish in the final point standings.
“It’s great that Credit One Bank will be expanding their partnership with our team next season,” said Larson. “It’s been cool to see their excitement and interest in our team and NASCAR grow throughout this year. We’ve had some exciting races with them on board, and hopefully there’s more to come next year.”
Credit One Bank, who first partnered with CGR in 2016 for several races with the No. 1 team, will also continue as an associate sponsor with Jamie McMurray and the No. 1 team in 2018.
