Camping World Truck Series driver Ben Kennedy will enter the 2016 season with some extra sponsorship backing. Red Horse Racing announced the No. 11 Toyota team has secured a multi-race sponsorship deal with JACOB Companies.

JACOB is a construction firm that focuses on “construction management, design, and technology.”

The deal begins with the season opener at Daytona International Speedway in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 on Friday.

“I’m thrilled to have JACOB Companies on board our Toyota Tundra for 2016,” Kennedy said said in a press release. “We’ve had the opportunity over the past couple of months to work with them and get to know them and I’m really looking forward to our partnership. I think we’ll have a lot of success on and off the track with them this season.”

In 2015, Kennedy, the son of International Speedway Corporation CEO Lesa Kennedy, finished ninth in the Truck Series point standings. He earned four top-five and eight top-10 finishes.
