Glen Mills, Pennsylvania -- September 19, 2014 -- Axalta Coating Systems paint is on six of the 16 motorsports teamsâ€™ racecars that qualified for the 2014 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. After last weekendâ€™s first race of the 10-week shootout at Chicagoland Speedway, all six drivers are still very alive in the competition and have a chance to be named Sprint Cup champion in November at Homestead-Miami Speedway, including four-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and driver of the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS, Jeff Gordon.
Axalta is proud to partner with both Hendrick Motorsports and Stewart-Haas Racing. Each race team sports Axaltaâ€™s paint colours on its racecars. The six cars and drivers include four from Hendrick Motorsports: No. 24 Jeff Gordon; No. 5 Kasey Kahne; No. 48 Jimmie Johnson; No. 88 Dale Earnhardt Jr. and from Stewart-Haas Racing: No. 4 Kevin Harvick and No. 41 Kurt Busch.
â€œWe started the season feeling very confident that our paint could find its way to Victory Lane many times during the season,â€ says Wade Robinson, Axalta Strategic Marketing and Racing Director. â€œWe are honoured that these Axalta-sponsored teams have wins in nearly half of all the points races this year (13 of 27). We could not be more proud. Itâ€™s been a magical year for Axalta Racing.â€
Axalta Coating Systems is â€œThe Official Finishâ€ of Hendrick Motorsports and â€œThe Official Finishâ€ of Stewart-Haas Racing.
