WINEGARD® SCORES A 'WIN' IN FIRST NASCAR OUTING
BURLINGTON, IOWA - Winegard Company was a winner in this week's NASCAR Busch Series Bashas' Supermarkets 200 when Clint Bowyer, driving the #2 Camping World/Winegard Chevrolet, edged out Matt Kenseth to take the win Friday night at Phoenix International Raceway.
"We are thrilled with Clint's results this weekend and couldn't be happier," said Aaron Engberg, manager of Winegard's Mobile Products Division. "With Clint leading the pack 120 of the 200 laps, the Winegard logo on the hood of the #2 car received massive television coverage that was viewed in millions of homes and RVs across the nation, and we're looking forward to more "W's" as the season progresses."
Next up for Winegard is a combined Busch and Nextel series sponsorship at the New Hampshire International Speedway. On June 30th, Clint Bowyer will be driving the #2 car for Winegard in the Busch Series Camping World 200. The following day, July 1st, Clint Bowyer will drive the #07 Camping World/Winegard car in the Nextel Cup Lennox Industrial Tools 300 Race. In July, Bowyer will once again drive the #2 Winegard car in the July 14 Busch Series Race at Chicagoland Speedway.
In addition to these events, Winegard's logo also will appear for the entire season on the B-pillar of the #10 Busch Series Car and the C-pillar of the #2 Craftsmen Truck, both sponsored by Camping World. Kevin Harvick, 2007 Daytona 500 Champion, will drive the #2 Craftsmen Truck for select races this season.
