With this, EPF will become the team’s primary sponsor for Elliott’s no. 9 Chevrolet Camaro for two races.

As part of the deal, window film brand, LLumar, will feature on Elliott’s no. 9 car. However, this will only be applicable for two races each season through 2023.

The relationship between Eastman and Hendrick Motorsports continues to be a win-win for both organizations,” said Darrell Reed, EPF’s sales and marketing director.

The opportunity to be aligned with Chase Elliott and ‘Team 9’ fresh off a championship season and another NASCAR Most Popular Driver award is exciting for our team and our LLumar dealers. Aligning with a recognizable young star like Chase will continue to grow awareness of the LLumar brand and products with consumers,” he added.

The brand’s objective is to provide high-performance films to protect homes, businesses, and vehicles from the sun. As it turns out, LLumar offers a variety of window tints and films for paint protection, decoration, security, and other such services.

The team is excited to see the Chase Elliott-EPF partnership

The Hendrick Motorsports team acknowledged that they have enjoyed their fruitful partnership with Eastman. This is why they are excited to pair the company with its newest NASCAR champion, Chase Elliott.

Without a doubt, Elliott’s value has skyrocketed since the 2020 season. This is because he is officially the third-youngest driver to lift the Cup Series title.

The driver is hugely talented, as evidenced by his ability to reach the playoffs in five straight seasons since his full-time debut.

The 25-year old admitted that he is keen to represent LLumar and partner with the company in 2021. He went on to praise their products and confessed that the paint scheme is pretty unique. This is why he is excited to see what the brand comes up with in the next three seasons.

With that, Chase Elliott is keen to kick off the 2021 season. Obviously, he would love to defend his Cup Series title, but Elliott knows he cannot get complacent.
