Lowe’s Cuts Ties With NASCAR Driver Jimmie Johnson

It’s the end of an era.

According to SBNation, Lowe’s will no longer be sponsoring Johnson’s 48 car.

“Since putting its name and colors on the No. 48 Chevrolet in 2001, Lowe’s and Johnson have evolved into one of the most successful and synonymous sponsor-driver pairings in NASCAR history, deserving of a spot in the same realm as Richard Petty and STP, Dale Earnhardt and GM Goodwrench, and Jeff Gordon and DuPont.”

Unfortunately, NASCAR isn’t doing well financially and this is just one more sign of the continued decline.
