Race car driver Tyler Reddick will debut the new Guaranteed Rate No. 8 Chevrolet at the first-ever Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum this Sunday.
Reddick said Sunday’s event is an exhibition race, so points do not matter and all the drivers will be going all-out to try and win.
“It’s going to be a wild race for drivers and fans alike, so I couldn’t think of a better place to officially debut Guaranteed Rate’s amazing new look,” Reddick said in an article for Guaranteed Rate.
Guaranteed Rate Vice President of Marketing and Sports Partnerships Steve McNelley says they are thrilled about the partnership. The company specializes in mortgage lending and digital financial services.
“Our focus on technology, innovation and speed makes this sponsorship a perfect fit, and we’re proud to kick off the season with one of NASCAR’s most talented drivers,” McNelley said in an article for Guaranteed Rate.
McNelley said an estimated 70% of fans in attendance of the event will be experiencing their first live NASCAR race, providing the Chicago company with an opportunity to showcase their products to new potential customers.
Guaranteed Rate Companies have more than 11,000 employees in over 850 branches throughout the country.
Reddick is a NASCAR driver for Richard Childress Racing. They were incorporated in 1969 and have earned more than 200 victories and 16 championships, including six in the NASCAR Cup Series with the legendary Dale Earnhardt.
2022 is Reddick’s third season in NASCAR’s top series. He is 26 years old and was born in Corning, California.
This season’s exhibition race will be held inside the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. There will be a pre-race concert by Pitbull and a halftime performance by rapper Ice Cube.
FOX Sports will broadcast the race which begins at 6 p.m. EST.
