LIVONIA, MI — Visteon Corp.’s aftermarket operations will sponsor Bill Elliott and the No. 91 Visteon Dodge for Evernham Motorsports at the Brickyard 400 on Sunday, August 8.
The entry of the No. 91 Visteon Dodge marks the first NASCAR Nextel Cup primary car sponsorship for Visteon Aftermarket operations, which supplies glass, electronics and underhood parts. While this is Visteon’s first foray into NASCAR Nextel Cup car sponsorship, Visteon has been involved in motorsports for some time — many NASCAR Nextel Cup Series cars are outfitted with Visteon radiator cores.
Visteon also offers officially licensed NASCAR Performance Windshields available for cars and trucks, which feature a checkered flag motif with the renowned NASCAR brand logo in the center.
Elliott, who is running a limited campaign in 2004, won the 2002 Brickyard 400, becoming the first driver to win the event from the front row. Winner of 44 NASCAR events, he also captured the historic first win for Evernham Motorsports on November 11, 2001, at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This year, Elliott also ran at Texas and in the Bud Shootout at Daytona. In addition to running a limited on-track schedule, Elliot remains active with Evernham Motorsports as mentor and coach to the team’s drivers, testing and developing on-track equipment, and lending his talent in a variety of endeavors on and off the track.
