Bill Elliott, winner of 44 NASCAR events, will pilot the No. 91 Visteon Dodge for Evernham Motorsports at the Brickyard 400 on Sunday, August 8.

Elliott, who is running a limited campaign in 2004, won the 2002 Brickyard 400, becoming the first driver to win the event from the front row. He also captured the historic first win for Evernham Motorsports on November 11, 2001, at Homestead-Miami Speedway. This year, Elliott also ran at Texas and in the Bud Shootout at Daytona.

The entry of the No. 91 Visteon Dodge marks the first NASCAR Nextel Cup primary car sponsorship for Visteon Aftermarket, a leading supplier of glass, climate control, rotating electric and other automotive aftermarket products. Visteon is no stranger to the motorsports world, as the majority of the cars running in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series use Visteon radiator cores. Visteon also offers officially licensed NASCAR Performance logo windshields available for cars and trucks. The company’s exclusive windshields feature a checkered flag motif with the renowned NASCAR brand logo in the center.

“We have enjoyed a productive relationship with Evernham Motorsports for the past few years and we are pleased to be the primary sponsor on the No. 91 Visteon Dodge at the Brickyard,” said Greg Gyllstrom, Vice President and General Manager of Aftermarket Operations. “Evernham Motorsports is recognized as a leader in NASCAR and they share our commitment to excellence and performance.”

In addition to running a limited on-track schedule, Elliott remains active with Evernham Motorsports as a mentor and coach to the team’s drivers, testing and developing on-track equipment and lends his talent in a variety of endeavors on and off the track. Elliott’s No. 91 Visteon Dodge is one of three entries Evernham Motorsports will field at the Brickyard 400. The team also will run the No. 9 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge driven by Kasey Kahne and the No. 19 Dodge Dealers/UAW Dodge piloted by Jeremy Mayfield.

“Continued success in motorsports – particularly in NASCAR – always includes strong support from committed sponsors,” said Ray Evernham, CEO of Evernham Motorsports. “Visteon brings that commitment to our sport and we are pleased to be the team to manage their first primary car sponsorship in NASCAR.” Visteon Corporation is a leading full-service supplier that delivers consumer-driven technology solutions to automotive manufacturers worldwide and through multiple channels within the global automotive aftermarket. Visteon has approximately 72,000 employees and a global delivery system of more than 200 technical, manufacturing, sales, and service facilities located in 25 countries.

Evernham Motorsports is a leading team in the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series. Founded by CEO Ray Evernham in 2000, the team is entering its fourth season of competition at the highest level of NASCAR racing.
