Great Clips has been a sponsor of KKR for the past two seasons on the #91 car with drivers Cody Darrah and Paul McMahan. In 2012, they will be a primary sponsor on the #9 entry with Saldana as well as an associate sponsor on Brad Sweet’s #49 and Cody Darrah’s #5 World of Outlaws cars.
“The folks at Great Clips have been a great partner of mine for years in both my Nationwide Series efforts as well as my sprint car teams and we look forward to continuing that relationship,” said Kasey Kahne, owner of Kasey Kahne Racing.
Saldana, who has been with KKR for six seasons, has won more than 85 World of Outlaws races. He finished third in points in 2006 and second in 2007.
