MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Oct. 8, 2019 – Ducks Unlimited (DU) is happy to announce that through Anheuser-Busch’s Proud Partner support of DU, the iconic duck head logo will grace Kevin Harvick’s No. 4 racecar during the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series- AAA Texas 500 playoff race at Texas Motor Speedway on Nov. 3.
"Anheuser-Bush has been a great partner to DU," said DU's Chief Fundraising Officer Amy Batson. " Having the DU logo represented on the Anheuser-Busch NASCAR is a special opportunity allowing us to create awareness for conservation among racing fans."
The car’s new paint scheme was unveiled on Monday, October 7, and the DU logo will appear on both sides of the car, along with “Ducks Unlimited” painted in large letters. Thanks to Tony Stewart, Gene Haas and Kevin Harvick, millions of people will see the Ducks Unlimited logo.
