Kyle Busch Will Run Bobby Hillin Throwback Snickers Scheme at Darlington

Last year, Kyle Busch paid homage to Ernie Irvan’s late 1990’s Skittles car. This season, Busch takes it back a bit further to pay homage to another past MARS car — Bobby Hillin’s Snickers ride.

Snickers made the announcement via their social media channels on Thursday morning.

Hillin ran the No. 8 Snickers Buick for the 1990 season. Driving for the Stavola Brothers, Hillin racked up a top-five finish and four top-10s that season. Hillin won one Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race through a 334-race career.

Busch will be looking at another win. He has four this season, and is in a tie with teammates Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. for most wins in 2019.
