MAACO to Join Axalta in Pocono

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2014) - Maaco, America's Bodyshop, is excited to celebrate their partnership with Axalta Coating Systems and co-branding race day involvement with the Hendrick Motorsports, #24 Chevrolet SS for the GoBowling.com 400 in Pocono, Pennsylvania this Sunday, August 3, 2014.

As part of the weekend celebration, the MAACO logo will be displayed on the rear quarter panels and tv panel of Axalta's two-time winning 2014 paint scheme, Brilliant Flames.

"Four time Sprint Cup Champion, Jeff Gordon's reputation and respect among the racing elite make him the perfect driver to highlight our relationship with Axalta Coating Systems," says Artemio Garza, CMO of Maaco. "We are looking forward to Maaco being represented in the race by a NASCAR legend."

This co-branding opportunity comes only one week after Gordon's 5th career win at the Brickyard 400, giving Hendrick Motorsports nine Brickyard wins in 21 years.
