Kyle Busch has been having a great season so far in 2018, having racked up 6 wins and ten Top 10 finishes. While Busch is known for saying what’s on his mind, a tact that polarizes fans into a “love him or hate him” stance, there’s no denying his talent and as I’ve often said, the fans need somebody too cheer against just as much as they need somebody to cheer for. Busch proudly relishes the role of bad guy, and any fan would be foolish to deny his skill.
One of Busch’s major sponsors is M&M’s, one of the best selling candy brands in the world, and they decided to turn to Busch to reveal the latest flavor of M&M’s candies as chosen by the fans. The brand launched three new flavors to a few months ago and asked buyers to vote on which one they liked best. Fans sampled the flavors – Raspberry, Mint and Espresso – and cast their votes online for the one they preferred.
With this weekend’s race at Watkin’s Glen serving as a perfect opportunity to deck Busch’s car out with the colors of the winning flavor, M&M’s decided to let Kyle announce the winner and reveal his matching livery.
After allowing a couple of minutes for fans to fill up the live feed – you want to fast forward to the 2 minute mark to skip the wait – Busch steps into view and drops the news that Mint has won the contest, receiving more votes than Espresso and Raspberry to earn a spot on store shelves for the next year and a half and on the side of his Toyota Camry.
Busch then grabs the cover on his car and pulls it aside, revealing the color scheme that perfectly reflects the Mint M&M’s packaging. Busch will run the car with the vivid mint green wrap this weekend when the tour visits Watkin’s Glen, so keep an eye out for his Camry, which should practically leap off your television screen!
Earlier this year, M&M'S U.S.A. launched three new, limited-edition flavors. You the fans were asked to vote & chose your favorite flavor, Crunchy Mint! Check out the M&M’S Crunchy Mint Toyota Racing Camry that Kyle Busch will race this weekend at Watkins Glen!#NASCAR
