N.C. — Kyle Busch Motorsports (KBM) is
pleased to announce that 7-year-old Brady Reuter from
Hudson, Mich. has been selected as the winner of the “Riding
Shotgun with Kyle Busch Motorsports” essay contest
for Michigan International Speedway. Reuter’s name
and picture will adorn the area above the passenger side
window of Kyle Busch’s No. 18 Traxxas Tundra for
the VFW 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race Saturday,
Aug. 20 and he will have the opportunity to attend the
race with three guests compliments of Michigan International
Reuter, who will begin the second grade at Lincoln Elementary
School this fall, had his essay selected as the winner
among submissions from children age 5-12 in the Greater
Detroit area. The contest called for children to submit
an essay of 150 words or less that described an experience
and/or achievement that occurred within the past 12 months
that affected their lives in a positive way. Reuter’s
essay described how his teacher helped him qualify for
a school reading program which improved his reading skills
and enabled him to pass the first grade. Also, his improved
reading skills now allow him to read the names on the
cars while watching NASCAR with his grandpa.
A motivational letter that Kyle Busch received during
the off season from Kyle Savoie (sa-VOY), a 12-year old
fan, inspired Busch to develop a program that recognizes
children for experiences and achievements that have had
a positive effect on their lives. To recognize Kyle Savoie
for inspiring the contest, a decal with his name and picture
adorned the area above the passenger window of the No.
18 Dollar General Toyota Tundra driven by Busch in the
season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway
on Feb. 18.
Michigan International Speedway is the fifth of 10 races
throughout the 2011 season that an essay contest winner
will follow in Savoie’s footsteps and “Ride
Shotgun” with Kyle Busch Motorsports. The remaining
races scheduled are Bristol Motor Speedway (Aug. 24),
Chicagoland Speedway (Sep. 16), Talladega Superspeedway
(Oct. 22), Texas (Nov. 4) and Homestead-Miami Speedway
