Busch's first career Sprint Cup title would pay hige dividends for fans

Racing fans now have a million reasons to cheer for Kyle Busch in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, as Mars Chocolate North America announced a deliciously unique offer from M&M’S Brand to make this year’s NASCAR playoff races even ‘Better with M.’

Here’s the deal: Should Busch, driver of the No. 18 M&M’S Toyota Camry, capture the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship, the brand will celebrate with America by giving away one million free bags of M&M’S. Talk about a sweet deal.

The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup is one of the longest and most competitive playoff systems in professional sports, pitting the sports’ top 13 drivers from the regular season against each other for 10 grueling races to crown a champion.  Busch is making his sixth appearance in the Chase, this being his fourth in the No. 18 M&M’S Toyota. As the “Official Chocolate of NASCAR®,” M&M’S brand saw an opportunity to make a victory even sweeter -- both for Kyle, and fans across the country.

“We’re thrilled to see Kyle and his No. 18 M&M’S teammates back in the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup this season,” said Roy Benin, Chief Consumer Officer at Mars Chocolate North America. “We’ve spent the past season showing fans that ‘Race Day is Better with M,’ so we couldn’t think of a better way to rally around Kyle throughout the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, as well as celebrate a potential championship than by giving away 1 million free bags of M&M’S.”
