Monster Energy has not decided whether to extend its sponsorship of the NASCAR Cup Series for 2019-20. At a business update for investors Thursday, Monster Beverage Chairman Rodney Sacks said: "We have gotten a lot more visibility, a lot more recognition for the brand through the NASCAR sponsorship. It's very expansive, it's on TV, it's appearing on talk shows. We look at the metrics that the NASCAR folk give us and it certainly does seem to have been enhanced. Now the degree is to what degree? That we don't know. ... It took us a little bit of time [in 2017] to get up to speed, to get our activation going. We think we'll see a lot clearer benefits and more benefits coming from that relationship this year."
