CHARLOTTE, NC - Hendrick Motorsports says Kasey Kahne will be sponsored by Farmers Insurance when he joins the organization next season. Kahne will replace Mark Martin in the No. 5 Chevrolet next year.
Farmers Insurance has signed on to sponsor 22 Sprint Cup races for three seasons.
The new sponsor will replace GoDaddy.com on the No. 5 car, freeing that company to focus on whatever Danica Patrick decides to do next season.
Hendrick still has 12 races left to fill for Kahne. The team already has in place a deal with Quaker State to sponsor four races a year in 2012 and 2013.
Kahne is spending this season driving for Red Bull as he awaits his seat to open at Hendrick.
