When it comes to the patriotism of sports fans, the passion that NASCAR fans have for their country is difficult to beat.
Fittingly, as the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series heads to a venue this weekend that's unmistakably American - Talladega Superspeedway. Kyle Busch, driver of the #18 Skittles America Mix Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), will sport a special scheme that will proudly show off the Red, White, and Blue.
Busch's #18 racecar will feature a special Skittles America Mix scheme in Sunday's Cup Series Geico 500. The Skittles America Mix is a must-have for summer gatherings, road trips and, of course, a great snack while watching a NASCAR Cup Series race either in-person or on television. Every bag contains red, white and blue Skittles with fruit flavors that include strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, wild berry and "yumberry" - the first white fruit-flavored Skittles candy - and are available from April-August this year.
