GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In commemoration of a partnership with the Texas A&M College of Engineering, Axalta Coating Systems will unveil a special paint scheme, Aggie Brilliance, to tackle the 1.5-mile Texas oval on Sunday, April 6, 2014 in the Duck Commander 500.
The partnership is being formed to promote the value of Axalta’s highly engineered, thin film paint technology and the importance of the Texas A&M College of Engineering in support of leading companies to fuel growth through education and talent development. The race kicks off the development of an internship program between Axalta and the university.
With a lone Sprint Cup victory in 2009 at the 24-degree-banked oval, Texas has posed its share of challenges for the No. 24 Team. But, driver Jeff Gordon has eight top-five finishes at the 190,000 seat track.
“We’ve been looking forward to this race since the start of the season,” says Wade Robinson, Axalta Strategic Marketing and Racing Director. “This special activation with the Texas A&M College of Engineering and our sponsorship of Big Hoss, the world’s largest high definition LED video board, is fitting for the Lone Star State race. We’re hoping for yellow roses in Victory Lane for Aggie Brilliance on Sunday.”
