MOORESVILLE, N.C. – GunBroker.com – which will celebrate its 10th season as a NASCAR team sponsor in 2013 – will adorn Joey Coulter’s No. 18 Kyle Busch Motorsports Tundra in the season-opening NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona (Fla.) Int’l Speedway on Friday.
GunBroker.com, the world’s largest online auction of firearms, parts and accessories, will also serve as the primary sponsor on KBM’s flagship Tundra for four additional races in 2013 – Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway Aug. 21, Las Vegas (Nev.) Motor Speedway Sep. 28, Phoenix (Ariz.) International Raceway Nov. 9 and in the Truck Series finale at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway Nov. 15.
“GunBroker.com has been a team sponsor in the Truck Series for several years, so it’s rewarding to know that this year they want to be associated with our No. 18 Tundra at Kyle Busch Motorsports,” Coulter said. “They will be our primary sponsor at some of my better race tracks, so our goal is to get them to victory lane this season. They also are the sponsor of the final race of the year at Homestead, so hopefully they will be helping us celebrate a championship.”
Coulter earned his first Truck Series win at Pocono (Pa.) Raceway last August and captured three pole awards during the 2012 season. The talented youngster posted eight top-five and 15 top-10 finishes en route to a third-place finish in the final driver’s point standings in his sophomore Truck Series campaign. Coulter’s 749 driver’s points accumulated over the final 20 races last season were more than any other Truck Series driver during that span.
Since debuting in the Truck Series in 2010, the No. 18 Tundra has compiled 17 wins, 38 top-five and 54 top-10 finishes across 72 starts. In 2010, KBM became the first team since the Truck Series originated in 1995 to win the owner’s championship in its inaugural season.
