Mars, Incorporated, M&M’s Departing NASCAR Following 2022 Season

Adam Stern of Sports Business Journal reported that Mars and M&M’s will depart NASCAR following the 2022 season.

M&M’s has been the primary sponsor of Kyle Busch since he joined Joe Gibbs Racing ahead of the 2008 season. Preceding that partnership with JGR, M&M’s had been a focal sponsor in the Cup Series since 1998, first sponsoring Ernie Irvan in 1998.

Dave Alpern, president of JGR told Stern, “I hope in 2022 we can focus on thanking [Mars], and we’ll be really excited to announce who will be on our car with Interstate [Batteries] in 2023.”
