GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The desert will heat up this weekend during the final race of the 2014 Chase for the NASCAR® Sprint Cup Eliminator Round at Phoenix International Raceway. Jeff Gordon has two wins at the Arizona track and the best average finish (11.3) among the eight remaining drivers. Only four teams will qualify for championship contention, which culminates next week in the season finale in Homestead, Florida.
Axalta Racing’s racecar is sporting a “must see” special paint scheme to commemorate Axalta’s Automotive Color of the Year 2015, which is called Radiant Red. Radiant Red was recently revealed, to much fanfare, at the SEMA automotive aftermarket tradeshow in Las Vegas.
“This special Axalta Automotive Color of the Year paint scheme is very exciting for us,” said Wade Robinson, Axalta Strategic Marketing and Racing Director. “It is a sister paint scheme to our flagship design, Brilliant Flames. Radiant Red highlights color and style, which is what we do best. I think fans will love the vibrant shade of red. It is sure to be extra-hot and colorful on the track. We paint winners!”
