NASCAR Driver Burton Marks Chicago Rawhide’s 125th Anniversary

SKF and Chicago Rawhide have agreed to a one-race sponsorship agreement with the Roush Racing No. 9 Ford driven by Jeff Burton that will see the Busch Grand National car painted to commmemorate the automotive supplier’s 125th year of operation.
The No. 9 SKF/Chicago Rawhide Ford will run the Busch Series race at Loudon, NH on Saturday, July 19 with a paint scheme commemorating Chicago Rawhide’s 125th Anniversary.
"I’m very excited to race the SKF/Chicago Rawhide Ford at New Hampshire," says Burton. "SKF and CR have been the major associate sponsors on my Winston Cup car for six seasons. They have contributed an extraordinary amount of time, effort and technology to our racing program and I look forward to celebrating with the SKF/Chicago Rawhide Ford in victory lane."
The SKF/Chicago Rawhide Ford displays a special CR 125th Anniversary logo on the hood. Primarily white with streaks of SKF blue and red along the sides, the TV panel features both SKF and CR logos.
The New England 200 will be Burton’s second Busch Series appearance of the 2003 season. Burton’s Busch series rsum includes 20 wins, 10 poles, 61 top-five and 103 top-10 finishes in 233 starts. New Hampshire has brought Burton much luck in the past, where he has recorded one Busch Series victory (spring of 1992) and four Winston Cup wins (spring of 1997, 1998, 1999 and fall of 2000).
