COLUMBUS, OH - Did you know the Earnhardt family has been Nationwide Insurance customers for 30 years? During a time when it’s hard for people to determine with whom they want to do business, Nationwide Insurance customer, Dale Earnhardt Jr. explains the reason he believes in Nationwide Insurance.
In a new Nationwide Insurance commercial airing nationally in general markets on March 30, Earnhardt Jr. shares the company’s commitment to listening to the needs of its customers and being accountable to its policyholders.
“With Dale Earnhardt Jr. as our spokesperson, we are able to reach a
broader consumer audience," said Jennifer Hanley, senior vice president,

Nationwide Insurance because he’s a popular driver who general market
consumers recognize and he’s also a favorite among NASCAR fans." Hanley

Here is what Earnhardt Jr. says in the commercial:
“As a team owner in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, I know that pleasing fans is a top priority…
“ ‘Cause without the fans, there’d be no NASCAR.
“Just like if it weren’t for customers there’d be no Nationwide. That’s why they serve their customers’ needs, not shareholder profits. Because as a mutual, Nationwide doesn’t report to Wall Street, they report to their customers.
