Kyle Busch will look to repeat as the champion in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series this season.
The driver of the No. 18 Toyota Camry for Joe Gibbs Racing will have most of his familiar sponsors back this season. In addition to Interstate Batteries and Skittles returning to the machine driven by Busch so too will M&M’s.
Busch has enjoyed sponsorship from Mars and its products since arriving at JGR. Last season Busch collected his first Sprint Cup championship winning the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway in addition to events at Sonoma, Kentucky, Loudon and Indianapolis.
This year’s M&M’s paint scheme looks much like previous ones. The hood is largely unchanged and the font for the number 18 is still the same The differences come in on the rear quarter panel where the current M&M characters are joined by throwback versions of themselves. On the very bottom of the car reads “Celebrating 75 years.”
Last year Busch benefited from a waiver allowing him to make the Chase after a crash in an Xfinity Series race at Daytona sidelined him until the 12th race of the season at Charlotte.
