On Wednesday, Busch unveiled the new GearWrench paint scheme, then shortly after, the 2004 NASCAR Cup Series champion took employees on a thrill ride in the car.
“There’s so much excitement around Kurt and we wanted to make sure our team members at our Raleigh facility knew that they were a part of it,” said Rena Fiorello, director of brand management for GearWrench in a team release. “It was fun to feel that team atmosphere and make sure that our colleagues understand that they’re truly part of everything we do, and that includes our partnership with Kurt and Chip Ganassi Racing.”
The four races that GearWrench will serve as the primary sponsor for Busch will be: Phoenix in the spring, Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600, Dover in August and Talladega in the fall.
Busch will drive the GEARWRENCH car during four races on the 2020 schedule: Phoenix Raceway (March 8), Charlotte Motor Speedway (May 24), Dover International Speedway (Aug. 23) and Talladega Superspeedway (Oct. 4)
