Gordon's No. 24 Panasonic Chevrolet will debut this weekend at Sonoma Raceway and will again appear Aug. 31 at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Panasonic will be featured as an associate-level partner in all other events. It will mark the first on-car branding for Panasonic since joining Hendrick Motorsports as a technology partner in 2007. The agreement runs through the 2016 season.

Gordon is a four-time NASCAR champion and his 89 victories rank third on the career wins list.
