“Rain-X® is proud to add a new chapter in our on-going partnership with two recognized market leaders, Advance Auto Parts and NASCAR,” said Harley Johnson, Director of Brand Management for Rain-X®. “With its 3,900 stores, Advance is one of the top providers of Rain-X® products to both do-it-yourselfers and professional installers. Add NASCAR’s popularity from millions of race attendees and tens of millions more racing fans, and the impact of our combined three brands it tough to beat.”
Currently in his fourth year of Nationwide Series competition, Scott has earned one pole, five top-five and 28 top-10 finishes. To date, since joining RCR at the beginning of the 2013 season, Scott currently sits eighth in the Nationwide Series driver championship point standings.
“RCR’s partnership with Rain-X provides a great opportunity to showcase several of the company’s new products to race fans, so it’s exciting they will be on my car at Daytona International Speedway,” Scott said. “I already feel like I’ve had a long relationship with them because I depended on Rain-X during my dirt racing days to keep fog off my visor during races. Now I use Rain-X products on my personal vehicles to keep water beading and wicking off. The racing at Daytona International Speedway is always unpredictable so I’m looking forward to bring everyone at Rain-X a good finish in July.”
In the season opener at Daytona International Speedway, Scott drove his way to a sixth-place finish earning his highest-career superspeedway finish.
For the last 40 years, Rain-X® has provided drivers with products to help them outsmart the elements. With their Original Glass Treatment™ water beading technology, Wiper Blades and Glass Cleaners; Rain-X® leads the automotive aftermarket in glass care. Rain-X®, owned by ITW Global Brands, joins RCR partners Shore Lodge, Husky Liners, Armour Vienna Sausages and Charter Media who serve as primary sponsors for a majority of the races on Scott’s No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro.
