PPG has painted the Dodge Challenger SRT8 car to be raffled by the Kurt Busch Foundation for its upcoming fundraiser for the Kurt Busch Superdome, an athletic facility built for kids attending the Victory Junction Gang Camp in Randleman, North Carolina.
The silver Dodge Challenger SRT8 received a one-of-a-kind paint scheme design by PPG master painter and instructor Paul Stoll and was painted by street rod painter Charley Hutton of Charley Hutton Color Studio. Hutton recently partnered with PPG and is best known for his appearances on the “American Hot Rod” TV show. The paint treatment, a combination of blue and Hemi orange, uses PPG’s environmentally friendly Envirobase High Performance waterborne coatings.
“This is one fabulous car,” said Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge Charger for Penske Racing. “The design is genuinely spectacular, and the finish is absolutely great-looking. I’m delighted with what PPG has done and how they’ve helped the foundation. They’ve done a stand-out job on this car.”
“I really enjoyed this project. Knowing that I was painting the car for such a good cause made it all very special and rewarding,” said Hutton.
The foundation kicked off the raffle on May 1 at Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, Va. For raffle ticket purchase information, visit www.kurtbusch.com/foundation. All proceeds will go to the foundation. The winner will be announced at www.kurtbusch.com on Sept. 30.
