Nationwide to drop sponsorship of NASCAR’s No. 2 series

Even as a single driver, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is bigger business than an entire NASCAR racing series. Nationwide Insurance announced on Friday that it will end its seven-year run as title sponsor of NASCAR’s second-tier series at the end of this season and focus its motorsports spending to other areas of the industry. One of those areas is sponsoring Earnhardt’s No. 88 Chevrolet as a primary partner for 12 Sprint Cup races in 2015 and 13 events in both 2016 and 2017.
