GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The return of Axalta’s Brilliant Flames to the NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series this past Saturday at Kansas Speedway resulted in the 89th career win for the four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion, Jeff Gordon.
Saturday night proved that a hot car on a race track in the hands of one of the sport’s best and smoothest drivers can be a tough combination to beat. This victory also marked the first win for Gordon with Axalta Coating Systems as a sponsor since the company became independent last year.
“Elated…that’s the only word I can think of to best represent this past weekend,” says Wade Robinson, North America Strategic Marketing and Axalta Racing Director. “The No. 24 Team has been very close many times this year, and to see the depth of focus and determination to always compete at the highest level is inspiring. Brilliant Flames in Victory Lane represents our organization well. It symbolizes our winning attitude, our exceptional paint brands and our own depth of focus to serve our customers.”
Axalta’s next race will be the Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in July. Bold color permeates at Axalta where we love racing and LIVE coatings. Axalta provides “The Official Automotive Finish” of Hendrick Motorsports.
