CONCORD, N.C. – Leavine Family Racing, Kasey Kahne and Dumont GROUP have unveiled a throwback paint scheme that will appear on Kahne’s No. 95 Camaro ZL1 during Saturday’s Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Kahne’s Dumont JETS Camaro is sure to bring back memories for his fans who helped vote him into the 2008 All-Star Race by way of the Sprint Fan Vote. Kahne is the only driver who has won the fan vote for the event and then gone on to win the million-dollar payout in the non-points event.
“It was so awesome that the fans voted us into the All-Star race back in 2008,” recalled Kahne. “It really was special to get voted into the race, and then to have a great car to be able to drive our way to the front in order to make strategy calls that put us in position to win.
“Our paint scheme for this weekend looks so similar to that scheme we ran in 2008’s event; it’s been cool to see it in the shop as the guys have been getting ready for this weekend,” Kahne noted. “I’m looking forward to racing it this weekend, and hopefully the paint scheme can bring us the same result we had ten years ago.”
Saturday’s All-Star Race marks Dumont JETS’ debut as a primary sponsor in NASCAR. The full-service aircraft charter, sales, maintenance and parts organization began its partnership with LFR at the start of the 2018 season and will be a primary sponsor again at Dover Int’l Speedway in October, as well as an associate partner for the full season.
“Dumont JETS is excited to have our first primary paint scheme in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series this weekend at the All-Star Race,” said Kevin Wargo, Director of Dumont JETS and Dumont GROUP. “We know that fans will enjoy the throw-back scheme as much as we do! We have enjoyed working with Leavine Family Racing and Kasey Kahne, and are looking forward to continuing the partnership on and off the track.”
