Hunting season has arrived and Kevin Harvick will be on a trophy hunt Saturday night in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bank of America 500 at Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway.
Primary sponsor Busch Beer will help the driver of the No. 4 Chevrolet SS for Stewart-Haas Racing (SHR) in his trophy-hunting pursuit by featuring a special-edition Busch hunting blaze orange paint scheme this weekend at Charlotte.
While the 2014 Sprint Cup champion is hunting race wins, race fans will be on the hunt for Busch Beer gold trophy cans as part of Busch Beer’s campaign dubbed “Hunt One. Win Big.” Fans will have the chance to win the grand prize hunting trip of a lifetime, as well as weekly hunting-themed prizes.
The promotion will feature updated packaging with four unique hunting game cans and a new golden camouflage trophy can. Can graphics will represent games from different geographic regions of the United States.
For entry into the “Hunt One. Win Big.” promotion, legal-age drinkers (except residents of California) who find a gold trophy can inside specially marked packages of Busch and Busch Light, can take a photo of themselves with it and submit it on Busch.com. Consumers can also download a can wrap to enter without a purchase. This year, every valid entry receives one Busch Beer hunting coolie – or foam can sleeve. Once entered, consumers are eligible for weekly premium prizes like hunting daypacks and solar recharging kits. Five grand prize winners will experience an epic, once-in-a-lifetime, all-expense-paid adventure to hunt some of the best game available in the country. Details can be found at Busch.com.
Harvick’s No. 4 Busch Hunting Chevrolet SS scheme will mimic the Busch hunting cans – featuring classic Busch logos, along with blaze orange throughout and green silhouettes of deer, elk, pheasant and ducks in a wilderness setting. Enlarged versions of the ever-elusive gold trophy can graphics will appear on both the driver and passenger sides. Harvick will also be outfitted in a camo firesuit to complete the hunting look and feel on the track.
Harvick has successfully hunted trophies at Charlotte Motor Speedway in his career. In fact, he has three Sprint Cup points-paying wins at Charlotte, with one coming in the 2014 Bank of America 500.
In October 2014, the Bakersfield, California native started seventh, led 162 of 334 laps and beat runner-up Jeff Gordon to the finish line by .571 of a second to secure his position in the Chase for the Sprint Cup Round of 8 on his way to winning his first Sprint Cup championship.
Charlotte represents the first race of the Round of 12 in this year’s Chase, and Harvick would love nothing more than to hunt down his fourth win of the 2016 season and lock up his position in the Round of 8 early in his pursuit of NASCAR’s ultimate trophy – the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup.
