WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) - AJ Allmendinger’s Sprint Cup ride in the No. 47 Chevrolet for JTG Daugherty Racing just got a boost.

The one-car team announced Friday that Kimberly-Clark Corp. has extended its sponsorship through the 2017 Sprint Cup season with their SCOTT, Viva, Kleenex, Cottonelle, and Huggies brands. Kimberly-Clark has been with the team for five years.

JTG co-owner Tad Geschickter says he’s “excited that they saw a positive return on investment and chose to continue to invest in the sport with JTG Daugherty Racing.”

Kimberly-Clark holds the No. 1 or No. 2 brand share in more than 80 countries.

Allmendinger is 25th in points heading into the weekend.
