Bass Pro Shops to Sponsor Tony Stewart

According to this article from Fox Sports it seems like Tony Stewart will be sponsored by Bass Pro Shops and Mobil 1 next season. The relationship between Tony Stewart and Bass Pro Shops already exists with the secondary sponsorship they have on both his and Ryan Newman’s car, so the partnership isn’t a completely new pairing.

Bass Pro Shops has been a longtime sponsor of Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing, and will presumably leave the team at the end of this season for Stewart, which means Jamie McMurray will need a new sponsor. However, this is not official and Bass Pro Shops have sponsored multiple teams before. If they’re looking for a full season presence I could see them staying around with EGR to sponsor McMurray for the races that Stewart is running the Mobil 1 colors. That is unlikely though because Ryan Newman needs sponsorship and it would be much easier for all parties to keep it simple.

Either way next year we’ll be looking at Tony Stewart running in the Mobil 1/ Bass Pro Shops. Good to see he found a sponsor so quickly after he lost Office Depot a few weeks ago.
