Farmers Insurance to keep sponsoring Kahne

BROOKLYN, Mich. (AP) Farmers Insurance will keep sponsoring Kasey Kahne's Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet for an additional three years.

The NASCAR driver says it's exciting to have Farmers Insurance as part of the No. 5 Sprint Cup team. The Los Angeles-based company will be featured as primary sponsor in 12 Cup races annually, including the season-opening Daytona 500. The agreement covers the 2015, 2016 and 2017 seasons.

Farmers Insurance has been a sponsor with Kahne since he joined Hendrick Motorsports in 2011. Last month, Nationwide Insurance announced that it would be a sponsor for Dale Earnhardt Jr. - Kahne's teammate with Hendrick - for the 2015 through 2017 seasons.
