Busch Brothers Join World Class Lineup of Monster Athletes to Announce Joining Monster Energy Team
A collection of world class Monster Energy action sports athletes welcomed Kyle and Kurt Busch to the Monster Energy team today with the announcement of a multi-year agreement as primary sponsor of the team’s No. 54 Monster Energy Camry in the NASCAR Nationwide Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports.
With multi-time X Games and Dew Tour Champion Jamie Bestwick serving as announcer, a freestyle moto-x demo kicked things off at the headquarters of team owner Kyle Busch’s race shop. “It’s great to have the Busch brothers join the Monster team and be wearing the Claw – they have the right attitude for Monster, and they’re proven winners, which is what Monster is all about,” said Bestwick, who was joined in the announcement by a lineup including seven-time Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath, multifold Freestyle Motocross X Games Medalists Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg, Kyle Loza and Adam Jones, off-road champion Johnny Greaves and BMX legend Dave Mirra in making the announcment in front a slack-jawed platoon of NASCAR media members who very likely saw moto-x backflips live for the first time in person.
WELCOME, N.C. (October 5, 2011) – Wheaties® will become a co-primary sponsor of Richard Childress Racing’s No. 31 Chevrolet with driver Jeff Burton beginning in the 2012 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.
The multi-year program will continue General Mills’ primary sponsorship with RCR for key races and associate positioning for the balance of each season with the No. 31 team. The famed Wheaties brand will be replacing Cheerios as the focus of the sponsorship. Wheaties has a proud history of fueling and celebrating sports performance. In addition, Wheaties shares a rich history with RCR, as Dale Earnhardt was the first NASCAR driver to be featured on a Wheaties box and he drove a Wheaties car for the 1997 All-Star Race. RCR began its current relationship with General Mills in 2008 with the No. 33 Chevrolet and driver Clint Bowyer, sponsored by its Cheerios® and Hamburger Helper® brands.
CONCORD, N.C. (Sept. 21, 2011) – NASCAR fans today will get a sneak peek at Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s new-look paint scheme for the 2012 Sprint Cup Series season.

“The time is right to put the power of Dale Earnhardt Jr. behind Diet Mountain Dew as our lead brand on the 88 car,” said Brett O’Brien, vice president of marketing for Mountain Dew and AMP Energy. “Diet Dew is one of the fastest-growing carbonated soft drinks in the United States, and
Dale Jr. is the embodiment of the person we’re trying to target with Diet Mountain Dew—it’s a perfect partnership. Additionally, AMP Energy will continue to be a significant part of our sponsorship activity with several AMP Energy paint-outs in 2012.”
