Tyler Reddick and RCR’s No. 8 Guaranteed Rate Chevrolet to Debut at NASCAR’s LA Coliseum Race

Guaranteed Rate’s Next Gen Chevrolet to premier at ‘Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum’ on Feb. 6

WELCOME (January 31, 2022) – Guaranteed Rate, a leader in mortgage lending and digital financial services, and Richard Childress Racing (RCR) announce today that Tyler Reddick will debut his new Guaranteed Rate No. 8 Chevrolet at the first-ever Busch Light Clash at the Coliseum on Feb. 6.

For the first time in NASCAR history, this season’s exhibition race will be held on a newly created temporary quarter-mile asphalt oval inside the iconic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The event will feature a pre-race concert by Pitbull and a halftime performance by rapper Ice Cube.

“There is so much buzz surrounding this incredible event, which is why we worked hard to push up Tyler’s debut in his Guaranteed Rate No. 8 and make it happen in this race,” said Vice President of Marketing and Sports Partnerships Steve McNelley. “An estimated 70 percent of fans in attendance will be experiencing their first NASCAR race, providing an incredible opportunity to extend Guaranteed Rate to new audiences.”

Fans witnessed the unveiling of the new No. 8 Guaranteed Rate Chevrolet on social media last week when Reddick and his RCR team tested NASCAR’s new Next Gen car at Phoenix Raceway.

“I’m excited to take the new Guaranteed Rate No. 8 out for its race debut on this first-of-its-kind track,” said Reddick. “It’s an exhibition race, so points do not matter and all of us will be going all-out to try and win. It’s going to be a wild race for drivers and fans alike, so I couldn’t think of a better place to officially debut Guaranteed Rate’s amazing new look.”

Reddick and RCR join a host of Guaranteed Rate’s successful sports partnerships, which include the NHL, National Lacrosse League (NLL), Bassmaster and the Professional Bowlers Association.

The Feb. 6 event, including practices and qualifying races, will be broadcast on FOX Sports. Sunday’s coverage kicks off at 3 p.m. ET on FOX with a slate of heat races.
