Crown Royal Ending Sponsorship

Are you a Matt Kenseth fan? Well, you may not be happy with the most recent news: Crown Royal is ending their sponsorship with the Wisconsin-native, No. 17 of Matt Kenseth, and with all of NASCAR after the 2011 season. 

It was announced that whiskey brand, Crown Royal, who was supposed to be sponsoring Matt Kenseth and the No. 17 Roush Fenway Racing Ford for half of the races next year, has decided to end the sponsor relationship with the team and with NASCAR all-together. 

The following is a part of an official statement from Crown Royal:

"In shifting our strategy, we will end our sponsorships with Roush Fenway Racing and NASCAR upon the conclusion of the 2011 season. We have developed strong relationships with the people at both organizations –they have not only been fantastic business partners, but have also become our friends. We thank them for working with us throughout the years to showcase the importance of our social responsibility initiatives. 
We look forward to a strong finish to the 2011 season and like the many fans we've gained along the way, we'll never stop rooting for the No. 17 car on its way to Victory Lane."

With all of this said, who will be the sponsor for half of the races for Matt Kenseth and the No. 17 team next year?
