Concord, N.C. – Blue Bird Corporation and ROUSH CleanTech will serve as the primary sponsors for the reigning 2011 NASCAR Nationwide champion, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., and his No. 6 team during the Dollar General 300 at Chicagoland Speedway on September  15, 2012.

“It is always great to have a new sponsor come into the sport,” said Stenhouse. “Blue Bird has such a rich history. I remember riding a Blue Bird bus when I was a kid. The partnership that Blue Bird and ROUSH CleanTech have formed to provide clean emissions for the environment shows the class of these two organizations. The bright yellow Ford Mustang will definitely stand out on the track. Hopefully we can get them into victory lane for their NASCAR debut.”

“It is exciting to have Blue Bird as a sponsor on Ricky Stenhouse’s No. 6 Nationwide Series Ford,” said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing at ROUSH CleanTech. “Blue Bird is the leader in providing safe and clean student transportation solutions, especially with the new Blue Bird Vision and Micro Bird powered by our propane autogas fuel system. Having their brand on the defending champ’s car will only help elevate the awareness of Blue Bird and propane autogas.”

“Blue Bird is thrilled to sponsor Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., as he looks to continue his winning success,” said Phil Horlock, president and CEO of Blue Bird Corporation.  “As the only school bus manufacturer to provide complete alternative fuel solutions, Blue Bird is delighted to partner with a leading automotive innovator such as ROUSH CleanTech for this exciting race.”

Earlier this season, Stenhouse sat on the pole and led a race high 135 of 200 laps at Chicagoland Speedway.  The 2011 NASCAR Nationwide champion had victory in his sights until a late caution spoiled his bid for the win. Stenhouse has four career starts at Chicagoland with one top-five and two top-10 finishes.

I’m not a big fan of NASCAR. I like making Danica Patrick jokes as much as the next guy, but my best racing memory is the time Dale Earnhardt, Sr., was on ‘King Of The Hill’, so I don’t write about it a lot. When we get a chance to talk to Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., I let Burnsy handle it.That all being said, I had to share this clip of Dale Earnhardt, Jr., reading a letter...
