McKINNEY (June 5, 2013) — McKinney-area residents will have a chance to get up close and personal to an authentic NASCAR Nationwide Series race car when the No. 6 World Financial Group (WFG) and Transamerica Ford Mustang rolls into town at McKinney Towne Crossing.
Presented by NASCAR series championship team Roush Fenway Racing, WFG and Transamerica, McKinney locals are invited to stop by and see the No. 6 Ford Mustang driven by NASCAR Nationwide Series sensation Trevor Bayne on June 13 and 14 at McKinney Towne Crossing, 8900 State Highway 121, McKinney. Event time on June 13 is from noon to 6 p.m. and event time on June 14 is from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m.
WFG and Transamerica are sponsoring Bayne in two races in the 2013 Nationwide Series. Bayne is one of NASCAR’s most exciting up and coming superstars and has the distinction of being the youngest driver to win the Daytona 500. Bayne, who actively competes in both of NASCAR’s premier racing series: Sprint Cup and Nationwide, took his first victory lap at his very first career Nationwide series race at Texas in the fall of 2011. That victory was just one of the 14 top-10 and five top-5 finishes in 29 NASCAR Nationwide series starts that season. The red and grey WFG/Transamerica car made its first appearance at the Sam’s Town 400 in Las Vegas this past March and will again take part in the upcoming Great Clips 200 in Phoenix in November.
A Roush Fenway Racing representative will be on hand to answer questions about the show car. Representatives from WFG from the McKinney area will be available to discuss the racing sponsorship and how they help families get on track financially.
