It was announced today that Max Gresham's No. 8 Chevrolet Silverado will sport a different look in the upcoming NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) race at Texas Motor Speedway. Instead of the normal red, white, and blue scheme, the truck will be dressed in a special green and blue paint scheme that announces the partnership with Leviton in association with the Made in USA Brand (MIUSA).
Gresham will kick off the partnership by competing in the WinStar World Casino 350 at the 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway in the No. 8 Chevrolet on November 1 with a new paint scheme art directed by Marcie Gabor for Gresham and Leviton's maiden voyage with NASCAR.
The design features a lightning bolt that starts at the nose of the truck and jolts along the passenger and driver sides of the Chevrolet. The lightning bolt stretches from the inside corner of each headlight sticker and continue to the wheel well on both sides. The one lightning bolt will hug the sides of the Made in USA Brand and Leviton branded Chevrolet Silverado in white dividing the blue and green.
“We like how the bolts are representative of Leviton being in the electrical business and Leviton's energy behind the revival of manufacturing in the United States,” president of Made in USA Brand and principal of Conrad Phillips Vutech, Gabor said.
Adorning the hood and truck bed of Gresham's ride will be the familiar Made in USA Brand Certification Mark logo.
For more than 100 years, Leviton has supported the American workforce and made every effort to manufacture products in the United States. When completing a home electrical job, about half of Leviton’s switches, wallplates and standard and tamper resistant receptacles (both traditional and Decora®) found in a home improvement store’s electrical department are Made in the USA. Consumers can feel good about supporting American manufacturing and the American worker when they see the Made in USA Brand Certification Mark logo anywhere Leviton products are sold.
Gresham, 20, has driven in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series since 2011 with 34 career starts. The Milner, Ga., native has earned one top-five finish, as well as four top-10 finishes this season with Sharp-Gallaher Racing. He was the 2011 NASCAR K&N Pro Series East champion earning two victories, four pole positions, nine top-five finishes and 11 top-10s in 12 starts.
Made in USA Brand will continue to serve as the primary sponsor for Gresham and No. 8 Sharp-Gallaher Racing team at Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 15.
