Kurt Busch to run 1999 Southwest Series Throwback at Vegas

CONCORD, N.C. – Chip Ganassi Racing announced a partnership with Las Vegas-based Star Nursery to be the primary sponsor on the No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, driven by Las Vegas native Kurt Busch, when the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series races at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, Mar. 3. The No. 1 Star Nursery Camaro will feature livery to match the car that Busch drove to his first NASCAR Championship 20 years ago.

The No. 1 Chevy Camaro ZL1 will feature a throwback design, similar to the Star Nursery Chevy Monte Carlo that Busch drove to the 1999 NASCAR Southwest Series championship. Busch and Star Nursery have enjoyed a relationship for more than two decades, beginning with his early racing days at the LVMS Bullring.

“It’s hard to believe that it has been 20 years since I won the Championship in the NASCAR Southwest Series,” Busch said. “Craig Keough and everyone at Star Nursery has been with me since I began racing. It is special for me to have what I consider one of the most special paint schemes of my career. This Star Nursery car is what spring-boarded me to big-time racing and having a chance to pursue my NASCAR dreams.”
