CONCORD, N.C. – AutoTempest.com, an aggregator of online classified advertisements specifically for cars, has joined Roush Fenway Racing and will serve as a primary sponsor of Chris Buescher in two races this season.
Their debut comes May 2 at Kansas Speedway when Buescher makes his 11th start at the 1.5-mile track. The brand will return to the No. 17 machine for NASCAR’s historical event at Circuit of the Americas (COTA) during the May 23rd weekend in Austin, Texas.
“We’re excited to partner with a brand like AutoTempest that falls right into our wheelhouse when talking about cars,” Buescher said. “Any time we can welcome a new partner to the sport, it brings an extra element of excitement for the team. We can’t wait to put the AutoTempest Ford Mustang on track in a couple weeks in Kansas, and then again down the road when we visit a new track in my home state.”
Since 2008, AutoTempest.com has helped consumers find their ideal cars online. The site streamlines the car buying process by gathering search results from top used car websites to take effort and guesswork out of the equation.
“We’ve never really done a lot of traditional advertising,” said AutoTempest CEO Nathan Stretch. “When people hear there’s a site where you can basically search everywhere at once for used cars, it kind of sells itself. Instead, we’ve focused on supporting the automotive and motorsports communities, which helps get the word out about what we do but also lets us give back at the same time. As fans ourselves, having the opportunity to sponsor Chris and the team is really incredible.”
